Logic problems (III)

 

ACTIVITY 313: Now, listen to a psychologist giving you the last problem in logical thinking. Try and answer this problem after listening very carefully to the audio file while reading the audio transcription. Then check your answer.

PSYCHOLOGIST: Now listen to this story about a professor of logic.

READER: One day a professor of logic was in a small town. He had some time to kill so he decided to get a haircut. The town only had two barbers, each with his own shop. The professor glanced into the first shop, which was extremely untidy. He could see the barber needed a shave, his clothes were dirty and his hair was badly cut. The second shop, on the other hand, was extremely neat. The barber was freshly shaved and spotlessly dressed, and his hair neatly trimmed. The professor returned to the first shop for his haircut. Now why did he go back to the first shop?

 
 

Finally, listen to the psychologist giving you some advice in logical thinking. Listen carefully to the audio file while reading the audio transcription.

PSYCHOLOGIST: Are you getting quicker at working these out? Can you feel your brain cells being stimulated by the exercise? Your brains may have developed so much doing the previous problems that you find the solution right away!!

But don't worry if it takes you a little while. I have known extremely intelligent people struggle to solve this problem for twenty minutes and then decide there is no solution. But I can assure you there is a solution if you approach it in the right way.

 

Trataré de seguir los consejos del psicólogo !!!
Justamente para ponerlos en práctica nada mejor que una actividad de PHRASAL VERBS ;-)
