This little Jedi mind trick is kinda freaky, till you think about it a little while. Then it's even more weird. Just follow the instructions on the site below.
If you do not understand I have posted the answer below. Please do the trick on yourself before looking at the explanation.

The answer is posted below. You will need to highlight to find the answer.
This first trick works because when you do add the numbers they are in a multiple of two i.e. 4+4 = 4*2 and 16+16 = 16*2. What your mind does after you read "Pick a number between 12 and 5." is you add 2 to 5 giving you 7 which is your answer.
The second trick works to a less extent. You may get potatoes or carrot. Many get potatoes because their vocabulary for vegetables is limited, and their mind directly goes to potatoes after they see the word vegetable. But if you have a bigger vocabulary then you may get carrot and that is because after you read "Don't advance until you've done each of them. Now, ARROW down" The word ARROW is capitalized. The suggestion is implanted into your brain to pick the word cARROWt. We read in our mind "arro" which gives us carrot. This suggestion is repeated in the statements "QUICK!!! THINK OF A VEGETABLE! Then arrow down." Again arrow. Remember that in the previous exercise you were not told to arrow down but scroll down. Nobody ever uses the expression arrow down. The suggestion works on most people.
Hope this answered your question.
