    I agree with someone above, it seems to me that the carrot is simply the most commonly seen/eaten/used/talked about vegetable, at least in my life. Thus, when your mind is completely distracted by numerical repetition, when asked something quickly (in all caps), you revert back on what you know/what is comfortable. For I think most of us: the carrot.

    Edit: And yes! It got me too.

    I doubt the number of letters has much to do with it, as my brain didn't even make that connection immediately.

    carrot has 6 letters so it comes to mind since its the same number you have been reading for a bit, albiet i've seen this before so it didn't work for me.
    +3 for the effort though

    I would argue that carrot is merely the first vegetable that comes to peoples head a lot of the time. I thought potato, personally.

    yeah... i know this one... Apparently the number six reminds most people of the colour orange, amongst other reasons. Subliminally you think of the first orange vegetable = carrot

    That might be true BUT I'm swedish and I also thought of a carrot (which in swedish is "morot"). BUT I didn't think "morot" I thought "carrot", so... I don't know.

    funny thing is it works in any language
    so it has nothing to do with "six"
    now I wonder why most people think of a carrot
    maybe it doesnt even depend on the number? we need mythbusters
