Creative Puzzles To Train Your Divergent Thinking


Generally, our brain deals with problems rationally. We base our answers on the lessons learned, with a historical basis and with a perfectly logical approach, but in many cases it is important to apply another perspective to problem solving. Many problems may be unsolvable using logic established but simple if faced with new ideas.

Today we train our brains to develop its divergent thinking. We are going to see a series of riddles I’ve been recovering from multiple forums and known and whose resolution requires a little creativity. Creative Puzzles playing is a good exercise of brain.

The logic puzzles are games that consist of finding the solution to a riddle or the hidden meaning of a sentence using intuition and reasoning. To solve the most common conundrums we must make use of the imagination and powers of deduction. The resolution has to be only the approach of the statement knowing it is not allowed to ask questions of any kind. Going to exercise our minds a bit: “A man is in the beginning of a long corridor that has three switches, at the end the room was closed with a door. One of these three switches turns on the light in that room, which is initially off. How do you know which switch turns? Ensure traveling light once the route of the corridor? “Clue: The man has a flashlight.
