Are you clevererererer than an infant?

Got this from the wonders of Facebook, from people whom I (up until now) have considered friends.

“This puzzle”, they claim, “can be solved by an infant in under five minutes. Adults may take up to an hour.”

8809 = 6
5555 = 0
7111 = 0
8193 = 3
2172 = 0
8096 = 5
6666 = 4
1012 = 1
1111 = 0
7777 = 0
3213 = 0
9999 = 4
7662 = 2
7756 = 1
9313 = 1
6855 = 3
0000 = 4
9881 = 5
2222 = 0
5531 = 0
3333 = 0
2581 = ????

I spent nearly three hours staring at it before I snapped and asked Google. It’s STOOPID. But that doesn’t stop me from torturing you lot with it …

    But have you considered why those numbers have those values?

    It’s because adults are more likely to see this as a sums problem, children are more likely to see it as a shape counting problem, particularly the less exposed to sums they have been.
