I got 13
Don't know if this was posted before but I saw this on another site and decided to post it... :)

The average person only gets 7 right.
This is based on U.S. info, so use all lobes of your brain. This can
be more difficult than it looks - it just shows how little most of us
really see!
There are 25 questions about things we see every day or have
known about all our lives. How many can you get right?
These little simple questions are harder than you think-- it just
shows you how little we pay attention to the commonplace
things of life.
Put your thinking caps on. No cheating! No looking around! No
getting out of your chair! No using anything on or in your desk or
computer!
Can you beat 20?? (The average is 7) Write down your answers
and check answers (on the bottom) AFTER completing all the
questions.
REMEMBER - NO CHEATING!!!
BE HONEST!!! That means no looking at your phone or anything
on your desk...
LET'S JUST SEE HOW OBSERVANT YOU REALLY ARE. - If not, just
have fun!
Here we go!

1. On a standard traffic light, is the green on the top or bottom?

I got 9 right but those questions are very american orientated I think ;/

And really, "which way do fans rotate" makes no sense at all. Some fans go both ways.

I said paper clips had six curves
I did get Bashful, but they forgot Sleazy :lol
I got five of the six Campbell's can colors, though! (who knew blue?)
And if you REALLY want to get picky, we only have 46 states, the other four are "Commonwealths" :eyes

4. What six colors are on the classic Campbell's soup label? Didn't know blue.

7. How many matches are in a standard pack? I don't smoke. I guessed 15.

9. What is the lowest number on the FM dial? I said 88.1 (I knew it was around 88)

10. Which way does water go down the drain, counter or clockwise? I got this right, but I think it's an urban legend.

11. Which way does a "no smoking" sign's slash run? I've seen it both ways.

12. How many channels on a VHF TV dial? I said 13...forgot there's no '1'. I'll bet younger people are like WTF is VHF?

Observational skills my ***. And whats with all the American flag and statue of liberty stuff? This test is ridiculously stupid. I award myself full points. :p

And the answer to "Which way does water go down the drain" is wrong. It can go either way.

Toilets and sinks drain in the directions they do because of the way water is directed into them or pulled from them. If water enters in a swirling motion (as it does when a toilet is flushed, for example), the water will exit in that same swirling pattern; as well, most basins have irregular surfaces and are not perfectly level, factors which influence the direction in which water spirals down their drains. The configuration of taps and drains is responsible for the direction of spin given to water draining from sinks and bathtubs to a degree that overwhelms the slight influence of the Coriolis force.

12. Though as others said, the questions are aimed at Americans!
I guess that is another part of how observant you all really are... quoting the original post. Check it out..

I only got about 6. I think it's because I'm so introverted, I'm stuck in my own inner world and don't notice external things.
