biscuit packer's test

Santa is great for bringing me a Cabinet magazine subscription which included this postcard of the 'biscuit-packers test'.   I really like the looks of that.

This 'test' consists of a tray holding four wooden biscuit shapes, three thin strips of cardboard to wrap them with and a diagram showing the most efficient solution. Developed by the National Institute of Industrial Psychology, tests such as these could help employers recruit manual workers who showed good aptitude to specific manual tasks.
