Riddles

critical-thinking

I love riddles.  I may not be good at solving them, but I still enjoy them.  I love trying to think outside the box, and the only way to solve riddles is by doing just that.  Most of the time, you over think the answers to the riddles, meaning the answer is something simpler than what you originally think.

 What gets wetter the more it dries?

You throw away the outside and cook the inside. Then you eat the outside and throw away the inside. What did you eat?

Of course there are some riddles out there that you need to pay good attention to.  The smallest details give out the answer.  Sometimes just one word gives the answer to the riddle, and if you don’t see that word, you wont get the answer.

You’re in a mansion and the power’s out. You see a green door and a red door. Pick one (it doesn’t matter which.) Now you see a purple door and a orange door. Pick one (again, it doesn’t matter which you pick). Now you see a door with a golden handle and a door with a silver handle. Pick one. You finally come to some signs on three doors. One says “Death from drowning,” another says “Death from machine guns,” and the last one says “Death from electric chair.” Then you see a big sign off to the side that says “Or stay in the mansion and starve to death.” What do you choose and still live.

I also enjoy the riddles that require outside the box thinking.  The answer isn’t something simple.  You have to think about them in a creative way.  Some of these riddles are known as psychopath riddles.  If you can answer the riddle correctly then you think like a psychopath.  I’m pretty sure it isn’t true though.

A woman, while at the funeral of her own mother, met a guy whom she did not know. She thought this guy was amazing. She believed him to be her dream guy so much, that she fell in love with him right there, but never asked for his number and could not find him. A few days later she killed her sister.  What is her motive for killing her sister?

  1. I really like riddles too. They’re are fun to solve and if you’re the one telling them, you get to see the light bulb go off. There’s also satisfaction in getting them right without any hints.
