This one feels less honest than the monty hall problem.

The problem itself tells you you picked a yellow ball so you jump into thinking it's a box vs box question, ignoring that initial part.

Meanwhile monty hall can work in real life.
Its still a given scenario and a problem for you to think about, sure it leads you a little bit but that's just in the nature of the question and is more a fault of the human mind. Regardless, it shouldn't take too long for you to work out 2/3 or be convinced of it.

Yeah, monty hall doesn't make your first choice for you, so its more applicable.

I don't think I've heard about it. Is it something you're taught in school? Maybe I know of it in a different form

It was from a game show.


One door has a good thing behind it, the other 2 have a bad thing behind them. The player picks a door and then the host shows one of the other doors has a bad thing behind it. Then the player can stick with the door they selected or switch to the other unopened door.

Really sad watching all this unfold. What's even sadder is that it seems not many are aware of the symptoms of mania.
