Self-improvement

A school psychologist was giving an intelligence test to a group of 8-year-olds. He took a map of the world from a “National Geographic,” tore it up into tiny pieces and handed the fragments to one of the boys.

The lad pondered the pieces intently for a few minutes, then quickly assembled the map without a flaw.

“Well,” replied the boy, “There was a big picture of a man on the other side. If you get that man straightened out, world will come out all right.”
