If you want to see just how smart you are, you can put your brain to the test by reading different riddles. Sure, there are plenty of riddles that are easy to figure out, but there are even more that will have you stumped for hours. If you want to see how talented you really are, here are a few of the hardest riddles you’ll ever hear.
“An echo.” Think back to the last time you yelled out to someone and heard your own voice echo through the room. It obviously only happens after you speak, which means an echo cannot speak back until it is spoken to.
“He was on the inside.” The riddle never says the man was cleaning the outside of the windows. He was actually on the inside of the building, cleaning the windows from that side. That means he was never in any real danger.
“A post office.” This questions tricks you, because it makes you think that “letters” are referring to the letters of the alphabet. Of course, they’re simply referring to the types of letters you stick in the mailbox and seal with a kiss.
“A snowman.” Unfortunately, snowmen aren’t going to last forever. As soon as it gets warm out, they’re going to disappear.
“Your shadow.” Sometimes, your shadow looks like it’s even bigger than you are. Of course, that doesn’t change the fact it weighs less than you do.
“A secret.” It’s hard to keep a secret, especially if it’s a juicy one. Of course, as soon as you tell someone your secret, you can no longer consider it a secret. Once one person knows, the whole world might as well know. There’s no longer any way for you to keep it from escaping.
“A coffin.” Unfortunately, the person who ends up using a coffin will never actually know they’re using it. Meanwhile, the person who creates it and the person who purchases it are never going to use it themselves. The whole thing sounds like a waste when you put it that way.
“Are you asleep yet?” If you answer the other person, then you’re clearly not asleep yet. If you were, then the only answer you gave them would be the sound of your snoring.
“A mailbox.” This is a hard one, because when you think about someone surrendering with a flag, you either think of a boxing match or a war. Of course, the answer is a lot more simpler than that!
“A snow flake.” Think about it. When a snowflake is first created, it falls from the sky. After that, it rests in the grass for a while until it melts. When it finally disappears, it’s like it has just run away.
