There are some people who just love to stump their pals and be the ones who always present brainteasers or puzzles in group emails. These people love to have a little fun and keep their friends on their toes. While the answer is so simple.
One of the latest brainteasers that is circulating on the internet has a lot of people stumped. In the photo you will see four matchsticks in the form of a cross and the puzzle will ask if you can make a square by moving just one match. Nine out of ten people cant figure this puzzle out.
If you also want to bring this puzzle out to your friends it is very easy, you will only need four matches. Start by arranging the four matches in a shape of a cross and then tell your friends that they are only allowed to move one of the matches in order to make a square. Being the presenter, the best part is to watch the wheels spin in your friends’ heads.
Give them only a few minutes to think of the solution and they will end up begging for your answer. When you finally break it out to them, they might get a little mad of how simple it was. And next, tell them to pull out the top matchstick slightly and show them this or let them reveal the secret themselves.
Often, adults overthink stuff by trying so hard to solve a problem instead thinking of a simple solution. You see, children are always so happy because they are innocent and still so amazed by little thinks like their own shadow or smaller things in life. Life can be very simple if you take time to notice that out.
