Working Wounded Blog: Executive Humble Pie


"A man and his son are in a serious car accident. The father is killed, and the son is rushed to the emergency room. Upon arrival, the attending doctor looks at the child and gasps, "This child is my son!" Who is the doctor? This is an insight puzzle. It's not like math or a logical problem that can be worked out systematically. With pencil and paper. The only way you can get the answer is if it comes to you suddenly in the blink of an eye. You need to make a leap beyond the automatic assumption that doctors are always men."
