  • A MIND TEASER:There are three extremely bright men seeking the hand of Ms. Sweet Mensa. Sweet loves her men smart, but cannot decide which one of the three is the smartest. Consequently, she proposes a test. Sweet places a mark on each mans forehead and tells them that each of them has either a blue mark or a red mark. She instructs them to raise their hand if they see a blue mark on either of the other two. The first man to determine what color his mark is, and explain how he arrived at that conclusion will have her hand in marriage. Each man raised his hand, and a few moments later, one of them had the answer. What color was the winners mark and how did he know?ANSWER (click here to see it more clearly): Since all three men raised their hands, the winner knew there could only be two possibilities. There had to be two blue and one red mark, or three blue marks. If there was a red mark on any forehead, the two men with the blue marks would each see a red and a blue mark and know immediately that his had to be a blue mark since all three raised their hands. The smartest man deduced that since nobody answered immediately all three marks must be blue.
