Urinal Psychology

...........A public loo.



One of the most intimidating places you can imagine.

And a place where etiquette MUST be followed.

But luckily for most men, they know what to do. It just comes natural to them. So if you are a man you should do well in the test below (although if you are a women, you may find it a little more difficult!)


====================================
The following is the urinal configuration in a sample men's room.
An X above the number will indicate "in use."
(Sample):

| | | x | | | x | (Indicates that urinals 3 and 6 are occupied.)

| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 |

You are to identify correctly, based on urinal etiquette, at which urinal you are to correctly stand. Good luck!


Easy Section

| | x | | x | | | (Urinals 2 and 4 occupied.)

| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 |
Your choice: ___



--------------------------------------------------------------
Correct answer: 6
It's the ONLY one to go to and every man instinctively knows this.
====================================


| x | | | | | | (Urinal 1 occupied.)

| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 |
Your choice: ___


---------------------------------------------------------------
Correct answer: 6
Stall 5 is acceptable, but you run a greater risk of being next to someone who arrives later.
====================================

The-Bit-Tricky Section

| | | | | | | (empty)

| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 |



Your choice: __
---------------------------------------------------------------
Correct answer: 1 or 6
You are tacitly saying, "I don't want anyone next to me."
====================================


| | x | | x | | x | (2, 4 and 6 occupied)

| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 |


Your choice: ___
---------------------------------------------------------------
Correct answer: 1
You're stuck being next to at least ONE guy, so you minimize the impact and get a wall on your left. NEVER go between TWO guys if you can help it. Exceptions to this are stadium restrooms where the herd thunders in.

====================================

Rather Tricky Section


| | x | | | x | x | (2, 5 and 6 occupied)

| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 |

Your choice: __


---------------------------------------------------------------
Correct answer: 4
Believe it or not, 1 and 3 "couples you with the guy in stall 2. And we wouldn't want THAT now, would we? This differs from question 4 in such a subtle way that the nuances cannot be explained. Suffice to say, only we men would understand!

====================================

VERY-Tricky-Indeed Section


| x | x | | | x | x | (1, 2, 5 and 6 occupied)

| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 |



Your choice: ___
---------------------------------------------------------------
Correct answer: NONE! In such a situation, you must use the toilet instead – or wait until you get home!
