Two in One

Situation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.

Awesome teaser =)

side fact - Multiple Personality Disorder is currently known as Dissociative Identity Disorder or DID

Part of me likes this... but then again, another part of me thinks it is pretty inane. I guess I'm split.
Nov 26, 2007

Great teaser! I thought maybe she was an actress and played a different part each day. I like yours better!
Nov 26, 2007

That was easy, because I watch Heroes. Pretty good, too though
Nov 26, 2007

Good teaser. I thought it was fun.
Nov 26, 2007

hmmmmm it was a little wierd

I thought she was a giving a password to get in the building.
Nov 27, 2007

That was great!
Nov 27, 2007

That was terrible!
Nov 27, 2007

I don't get it.

I have wanted to do situation teaser for a while but i didn't have any good ideas untill now.
Nov 28, 2007

Well I guess I kind of got the right answer. I figured she had either legally changed her name or both of those names were hers (one being a first name the other a middle or last name) or she was lying. Your answer that she had DID would be the same as she was lying (although with a medical reason).
Nov 28, 2007

That was interesting.
Nov 29, 2007

i thought she was saying the name of the guard, and that the next day it was a different guard called jenny. though that would be "trick" i guess.
Nov 30, 2007

I got this straight away... too easy
Nov 30, 2007

it could also be she was trying to steal money from a bank vault and just saying new names...
Dec 01, 2007

i thought 3 things either she had lied, 4got who she was,OR she had mulipule names
Dec 01, 2007

Do you like this teaser? If so do you think I should write more?
Dec 02, 2007

Pah, and here I sat, thinking I was all smart for realizing that she was saying the GUARD's name.
Feb 15, 2008

i figured it was either that or she worked for soe super secret spy organization and the name you said changed daily and was a password to get in.

The title is a give-away. the teaser was clever though.
Sep 20, 2008

I have mutiple personalities but we don't talk about it.
Nov 25, 2008

Hmm... Clever, I guess, but I've never heard of this disorder. But why would she need to change her name to have a different personality? Your name doesn't decide what kind of personality you have....
Or does it?
Mar 10, 2009

She lied!
Jan 01, 2011

I thought she said her name, but also the guard's name.
Jul 12, 2013

Sort of far fetched, but it makes sense.
