Nope, I disagree. the correct answer is your eyes.

This has been floating around Facebook as the Giraffe challenge (called so because if you get it wrong you are expected to change your profile picture to a giraffe)

i had thought about that, but felt that would put more into the trick category. as such, I went with the door instead.

I think it's quite logical to open your eyes before the door. It's only perceived as a trick because most people don't take into account all the information given to them.

Okay, so based on these comments, I have submitted the request to change it. Thanks for the feedback.

A variation on the old "light the match before you light the candle, lantern, or fireplace".

Yeah, your eyes. I mean, geez, it's 3am!!!
Jan 31, 2014

I'm sorry! I'm not answering if it's my DEAD mom and dad at the door at 3am!
Jan 31, 2014

my son said he'd still be up at 3am, so door would be right. so I guess it's situational...

It says 'you are woken up' so your eyes are already open. The door is correct.

Mini: are you awake? Now close your eyes. Are you still awake?

I thought about saying "eyes" but then reread the question and went with "door" which is the correct answer by the way. Look at the information given..the doorbell rings and WAKES YOU UP so you're eyes were already open when the question was asked about what you open first. Well, since I was awake, my eyes were already open so after that the first thing I open is the door. Open to interpretation I suppose but "door" seems more correct to me. Anyone else agree?
Sep 13, 2014

Yeah, I think door makes a lot more sense than eyes. How is one supposed to know they are dreaming?
Jul 05, 2015

If Im sleeping then eyes. If im awake the door and if both is done then the fridge
Jun 05, 2016

If I am blind then door :-) so the question needs to be edited
