So now I’m going to predict your personality based on one question. What happens in Monopoly when someone lands on “free parking”? Please type your answer in the comments field BEFORE clicking “more” or Googling the answer. I don’t need you rigging this. If I find out only 2% of readers participated, I’ll track down your IP address, come to your work or home, and throw sand in your face.
This psychoanalysis should not constitute as medical advice, and it’s based on no longitudinal clincal research that includes a test and control and a pre and post factorial quantifier of exponent data.
P.S. The bonus question is do you like raw or cooked carrots?
1) If you don’t know, then you live a carefree life without concerns for rules or social constructs. But you also had a sad childhood because the rest of us played Monopoly even if it ended in tears, fights and the game pieces being tossed into eyeballs. You probably played with rocks and had an imaginary friend who didn’t amuse themself on playing fat capatilsm games. And if you did play, you’d totally collect the purple properties while I snagged the green and crushed you with hotels.
2) If you said “nothing” than you’re right. According to Parker Brothers rules there is no payout. You’re also totally anal retentive and were probably potty trained prematurely. You read instructions and correct typos on blogs and newspapers. You feel important that you adhere to process, and view spontanious people as simple minded and childlike.
3) If you said “the person scores the utility taxes” then you’re living with a rogue “HOUSE rule.” While Parker Brothers encourages these, it makes the game last longer. So you are lacking your sense of delayed gratification. You choose the instant glory of the payout but you’re going to suffer through a longer game in the end — whether you lose or lose badly. You are a rebel and were potty trained late. You probably drew on the wall with your feces. You assemble Ikea furniture without putting the Byorgs into the Billys.
P.S. If you like raw carrots you’re more likely to be intelligent than people who prefer cooked ones. I have no source. I just remember it from a study in psychology that tried to find out which random issues would correlate best with intelligence.
SOURCE on the Monopoly one: Wikipedia so it’s got to be accurate:Many casual Monopoly players are surprised to discover that some of the rules that they are used to are not part of the official rules. Many of these house rules tend to make the game longer by randomly giving players more money. Some common house rules Free Parking jackpot, which usually consists of an initial stake (typically $500, or $5 million in the Here & Now Edition) plus collections of fines and taxes otherwise paid to the bank. A player who lands on Free Parking wins the jackpot, which may then be reset with the initial stake (if any). The jackpot is usually put in the center of the board. Since the jackpot forms an additional income for players in this set of house rules, games can take a much longer time than under normal rules.
