I wonder how close a figure to 98% of people would say " carrot " even if you just asked them to think of a vegetable rather than priming them with visual clues and performing number tricks. Quite high I would think.

Well i just asked two of my housemates to name the first vegetable that came to mind, and that was without doing the exercise first, and they both said carrot. So could you be right neilep!?  :)

Best friends said carrot too, without the test. She pointed out that when she was a kid, in learning the alphabet, C was for carrot... hmm!?!?  :)

p.s i cannot get rid of the double quote here.... gah!
