Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Einsteins Intelligence Quiz. Only top 2% IQ over 132, can answer it. I got it right.

I don’t know if this quiz really is an Einstein Quiz, or believe only top 2% could answer it, because I got it right, and found it easy. And I am no Einstein. I have no delusions as to my intelligence. Life wisdom I have, intelligence is not Einstein level.

Einstein Intelligence Quiz.

Albert Einstein said that only 2% of the people on the planet can solve it. The top 2% have an IQ of over 132. At that IQ, they can be an eminent professor or editor. This 15 year old girl said that it was very easy for her. I did not find it to be easy. But her father is a doctor in a hospital and her mother is a lawyer, so she is brilliant. It uses an ambiguous word that can have different meanings and cause people to fail to figure it out. I asked people on the internet what this word meant and got 3 different answers. They said that ‘first’ can be on left, right or either one. So I tell you what the word means in this quiz and correct the mistake that Einstein made. The first house is the one on the left side in this quiz.

Einstein wrote this quiz last century. He said that 98% of the people in the world cannot solve the quiz.

There are 5 houses in 5 different colors.
In each house lives a person with a different nationality.
These 5 owners drink a certain type of beverage, smoke a certain brand of cigar, and keep a certain pet.
No owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigar or drink the same drink.

Here’s the question: Who owns the fish?

1.The man living in the house right in the middle drinks milk

2.The Norwegian lives in the first house ( the house on the left end)

3.The Norwegian lives next to the blue house

4.The green house owner drinks coffee

5.The green house is on the left of the white house Continue reading


You betcha, I will challenge anything that does not ‘sit well with my soul’.

A post to my community page @ https://www.facebook.com/HealingFromComplexTraumaAndPTSDAndCPTSD

I think being someone who has been abused so much, since birth, by all the important people in my life, and by so many…. I developed a deep need and deep capacity to think about everything and when something doesn’t ‘feel’ right, to not just assume it’s okay. No doubt PTSD increases this too. But, it has given me the capacity to consider so much very deeply.

I challenge much of what I see, read that does not seem okay. I am aware people have different opinions, and that is okay, but if it doesn’t ‘sit right with my soul’ – then I will process this and challenge it. And I have told to keep doing this.

I challenge my own doctor/counsellor and I am blessed to know, she lets me do this, because it is part of my healing. I told her some time back that I challenge everything and she replied ‘Good! – go (Lilly)’.

And I think it is healthy to share what I process from the perspective of a survivor of much abuse, who also has intelligence, life wisdom, deep processing capacity and empathy. Continue reading
