Are you ready for your brain to hurt?
Probably not, but it just might after you run through this “simple” brain teaser. Why is that the “simple” ones always give us the most grief?
Some brain teasers are relatively straightforward, like this one.
The difference with a puzzle like this is that with brute force — that is to say time and energy — you’ll probably figure it out.
A puzzle like this is just a matter of checking off boxes.
But other puzzles and problems are more like riddles.
Which is to say, they won’t get solved if you just work hard. You’ll need to figure out the “trick” to get to the right answer.
That’s the rub, and how the puzzles get you.
Most online quizzes aren't exactly an IQ test or even the Stanford Achievement Tests we all used to take when we were in school, but it doesn't mean that they're always easy.
So if you're feeling up to it, get ready to dust off the ole' thinkin' cap and give this one a try.
Oh, and not to put the screws to you TOO bad, but the people who “get” this puzzle you’re about to see do so in less than ten seconds.
So, uh, no pressure or anything.
