Logic Brain Teasers

Updated on January 6, 2013

Brain Teasers

I can’t remember when I was not in love with Brain Teasers. I think I was brought up on them. Having a Father obsessed with Mathematics and Logic created an environment in which I was always involved and intrigued by Brain Teasers. I would have written them out for you but then I checked Khan Academy and they had the videos all prepared for you so I will just use their videos.

Liar Truth Brain Teasers

Toggle Brain Teaser

I disagree with the conclusion of the Toggler Brain Teaser

Although I disagree with the assertion here because you are unable to account with for possibility a toggler will answer “No” and be untruthful. The conclusion is incorrect but it is an interesting problem because it allows us to complete this problem.

I had this one as a child.

My Dad gave me this one before I was in grade school but there were only five people in line and not ten. I figured it out but it did take me some time as a child

Alien Abduction Brain Teaser

In Conclusion

I love brain teasers. They are so much fun and I have been doing them my entire life. Is it a waste of time? I don’t believe there has been any scientific data either way that brain teasers are good for your mind but I have done well in Mathematics in my life and I truly find them entertaining. Like the New York Times, I always enjoy completing them.

      I was talking about the second question if the toggler said No on the first.

      P.S. The Khan Academy link is broken.

      But impossible to solve without more evidence.

      Instead of ''Who is not the truth teller?'', I prefer the less ambiguous ''Name a toggler,'' as this is more meaningful for more than two people.
