Businessman Anand Mahindra took to Twitter to share a personality test (of sorts) this Sunday. Mr Mahindra, 65, likes to throw fun contests and challenges on the microblogging platform. This time, he asked his 7.8 million followers to share the first thing that came to their minds on seeing a picture he shared – a photograph that shows a pipe constructed to go around a small boulder. Mr Mahindra compared this exercise to a Rorschach inkblot test – a psychological test in which subjects are asked to describe what they see when they look at ambiguous inkblot images.
“A Rorschach test evaluates your personality based on your interpretation of an inkblot,” wrote Anand Mahindra on Twitter. “Someone shared this pic with me but I’ve eliminated the caption it came with, because I think how we interpret this is a kind of Rorschach test.”

The picture shared by Anand Mahindra has been circulating on the Internet for some time now, with many calling it an impressively lazy “not my job” moment from people who tried to think of a time-saving workaround to solve a problem.
My job is to lay the pipe. Moving the stone isn’t my job.
