Word associations are fun. We think they are so much fun, we could do them every day. If you are a fan of word associations, then this is the quiz for you.

Word associations are a game that encourages players to name a word that "goes" with a stated word. Although word associations are fun and can be a great game, they can also be used for college entrance tests, employment exams and psychological evaluations. Apparently, the words we associate with other words tell people something about us. Now, we can agree that if an examiner shows an examinee the word "kitten" on a card, and the examinee states the word "murder" as the associated word, we might begin to worry, but for the most part, we just don't get it. But, not to worry, failing this word association quiz won't earn you a room at the nearest psychiatric hospital, but acing it will earn you bragging rights. In fact, we know that this word association will be such a challenge that we dare you to answer each of these 35 questions correctly. Challenge your friends to do the same.
