Only those with a high IQ can spot the chicken among the Easter eggs

Brainteasers are a great way to push the mind to its limits and this Easter egg brainteaser is no different.

Easter is in full swing and the clocks have gone forward meaning that the days will continue to get longer and the temperatures will start to slowly get hotter.

Despite these meteorological changes, there will still be plenty of time for brainteasers and brain puzzles. These can come in many different forms, they can be analytical, observational, or mathematical.

Mathematical brainteasers ask users to solve maths-based puzzles, while analytical brainteasers require users to work out the answer to a riddle. Observational brainteasers, such as The Small Business Blog instruct participants to find a visual anomaly in an image.

In this brainteaser you are asked to find the odd egg out in the image above, if you can do so in under seven seconds you might have a high IQ.


    Although brainteasers may seem easy and simply something to kill time on the morning commute or whilst in a waiting room, they could have some physiological benefits.

    Brainteasers and other brain puzzles such as crosswords or sudokus act like exercise for the mind in the same way running or cycling acts like exercise for the body’s muscles. It is important to keep exercising the mind so it remains healthy in the long term.

    The healthier the mind is, the less likely it might be to develop neurodegenerative conditions such as dementia. This isn’t to say that brainteasers will stop someone from developing the disease, other factors such as diet and lifestyle can play a role, but they could help keep the mind sharper for longer.

    Dementia is one of the most devastating conditions to affect people in the UK. Every year, thousands of people are diagnosed with a condition that can come in many different forms and have a variety of symptoms.

    Work is currently underway to try and develop new treatments and a potential cure for the condition. So far, some progress has been made with new treatments developed last year that can help slow the disease ever so slightly. However, more medicines will need to be developed in order to keep pace with the rising number of people who will develop the disease in the coming decades.
