    1. As someone who likes to solve Rubik’s cube and its many variants, I’m fond of solving puzzles like these.

      For me, those long-winded logical puzzles confuse me such as those that ask you to figure out the favorite food of 5 people based on several premises… Unless of course if I reduce the puzzle into logical symbols and perform the appropriate logical operations. But to me, solving puzzles like that isn’t that fun.
