The Simple Logical Puzzle That Shows How Illogical People Are

The Wason Selection Task was developed by English psychologist Peter Wason to study how people think. They often don’t think rationally.

You can read about Wason’s research into the human tendency to select irrational paths at Nautilus. (via Digg)
