One Question Test for Software testing position.

Here's a one-question Test to help you decide how suitable
You are for any software testing position:
 
There is a mute who wants to buy a toothbrush.

By imitating the action of brushing one's teeth, he successfully
expresses himself to the shopkeeper and the purchase is done.

Now, if there is a blind man who wishes to buy a pair of sunglasses, how should
 he express himself?

 Think about it first before scrolling down for the answer...





He opens his mouth and says. "I would like to buy a pair of sunglasses."
If you got this wrong, please do not apply for any software testing position.

Disney Password
My kids love going to the Web, and they keep track of their passwords by writing them on Post-it notes.
I noticed their Disney password was "MickeyMinnieGoofyPluto," and asked why it was so long.
"Because," my son explained, "they say it has to have at least four characters."

You've been programming too long when:
  • When you are counting objects, you go "0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,A,B,C,D...".
  • When asked about a bus schedule, you wonder if it is 16 or 32 bits.
  • When your wife says "If you don't turn off that darn machine and come to bed,then I am going to divorce you!", and you chastise her for for omitting the else clause.
  • When you are reading a book and look for the space bar to get to the next page.
  • When you look for your car keys using: "grep keys /dev/pockets"
  • When after fooling around all day with routers etc, you pick up the phone and start dialing an IP number.
  • When you get in the elevator and double-press the button for the floor you want.
  • When not only do you check your email more often than your paper mail, but you remember your {network address} faster than your postal one.
  • When you go to balance your checkbook and discover that you're doing the math in octal.
  • When you dream in 256 pallettes of 256 colors.
  • What is a computer's first sign of old age? Loss of memory.
  • What is an astronaut's favorite key on a computer keyboard? The space bar.
  • What happened when the computer fell on the floor? It slipped a disk.
  • Why was there a bug in the computer? It was looking for a byte to eat.
  • What is a computer virus? A terminal illness.
    To err is human; but to really mess things up requires a computer.
    Computers are not intelligent.  They only think they are.
    Computers make very fast, very accurate mistakes.
    My computer isn't that nervous. It's just a bit ANSI.
    The attention span of a computer is as long as its electrical cord.
    


    Bumper Sticker:
    We are Microsoft. Resistance Is Futile. You Will Be Assimilated.
    You vs. Your Boss...
    
    When you take a long time, you're slow. When your boss takes a long time, he's thorough.
    
    When you don't do it, you're lazy. When your boss doesn't do it, he's too busy.
    
    When you make a mistake, you're an idiot. When your boss makes a mistake, he's only human.
    
    When doing something without being told, you're overstepping your authority. When your boss does the same thing, that's initiative.
    
    When you take a stand, you're being pig-headed. When your boss does it, he's being firm.
    
    When you overlooked a rule of ettiquette, you're being rude. When your boss skips a few rules, he's being original.
    
    When you're out of the office, you're wandering around. When your boss is out of the office, he's on business.
    
    When you're on a day off sick, you're always sick. When your boss has a day off sick, he must be very ill.
    
    When you apply for leave, you must be going for an interview. When your boss applies for leave, it's because he's overworked
    
    

    A university scholar, Mr. John Smith approaches his friend a software testing guru 
    telling him that he has a Bachelor in programming, and now would like to learn the 
    software testing to complete his knowledge and to find a job as a software 
    tester. After summing him up for a few minutes, the software testing guru told him 
    "I seriously doubt that you are ready to study software testing. It's the serious topic. 
    If you wish however I am willing to examine you in logic, and if you pass the test I 
    will help teach you software testing. " 
    
    The young man agrees. Software testing guru holds up two fingers "Two men come 
    down a chimney. One comes with a clean face and the other comes out with a 
    dirty face. Which one washes his face? 
    
    The young man stares at the software testing guru. "Is that a test in Logic?" 
    software testing guru nods. 
    
    "The one with the dirty face washes his face" He answers wearily.
     
    "Wrong. The one with the clean face washes his face. Examine the simple logic. 
    The one with the dirty face looks at the one with the clean face and 
    thinks his face is clean. The one with the clean face looks at the 
    one with the dirty face and thinks his face is dirty. So the one with 
    the clean face washes his face." 
    
    "Very clever" Says Smith.  "Give me another test" 
    
    The software testing guru again holds up two fingers "Two men come down a chimney. 
    One comes out with a clean face and the other comes out with a dirty face. which 
    one washes his face? 
    
    "We have already established that. The one with the clean face washes his face"
     
    "Wrong. Each one washes his face. Examine the simple logic. The one with the dirty 
    face looks at the one with the clean face and thinks his face is clean. The one 
    with the clean face looks at the one with the dirty face and thinks his face is 
    dirty. So the one with the clean face washes his face. When the one with the 
    dirty face sees the one with the clean face washing his face, he also washes 
    his face. So each one washes his face" 
    
    "I didn't think of that!" Says Smith. " It's shocking to me that I could 
    make an error in logic. Test me again!." 
    
    The software testing guru holds up two fingers "Two men come down a chimney. 
    One comes out with a clean face and the other comes out with a dirty face.
     Which one washes his face? 
    
    "Each one washes his face" 
    
    "Wrong. Neither one washes his face. Examine the simple logic. 
    The one with the dirty face looks at the one with the clean face 
    and thinks his face is clean. The one with the clean face looks at 
    the one with the dirty face and thinks his face is dirty. But when 
    the one with clean face sees that the one with the dirty face doesn't 
    wash his face, he also doesn't wash his face So neither one washes his face" 
    Smith is desperate. "I am qualified to study software testing. Please 
    give me one more test" 
    
    He groans when the software testing guru lifts his two fingers 
    "Two men come down a chimney. One comes out with a clean face and the 
    other comes out with a dirty face. Which one washes his face? 
    
    "Neither one washes his face" 
    
    "Wrong. Do you now see, John, why programming knowledge is an insufficient 
    basis for studying the software testing? Tell me, how is it possible for 
    two men to come down the same chimney, and for one to come out with a 
    clean face and the other with a dirty face? Donít you see? The whole 
    question is - foolishness Ė and if you spend time allowed for testing 
    trying to answer foolish questions, all your testing will be foolish." 
    

    During a recent password audit, it was found that a blonde was using 
    the following password for her computer:
    
    MickeyMinniePlutoHueyLouieDeweyDonaldGoofy
    
    When the auditor asked why she had such a big password, she said,
    
    Ready for this?
    
    "Hellllooooooooo! The tech support guy said that it had to be at least 
    eight characters long."
