The Candle Problem by Karl Duncker, 1945


You are in a room with a table pushed against the wall.
On it is a box of thumbtacks, matches, and a candle.
You must fix and light a candle on a wall (a cork board) in a way so the candle wax won’t drip onto the table or floor below.

This is the classic Candle Problem developed by psychologist Karl Duncker in 1945
