    Default Are you good at (solving) mysteries?

    Whether it be books, movies, video games, or whatever else. Do you always figure out the mystery or are you hopeless like me?

    I'm pretty good usually.

    Whether that's because I have a wicked brain or because a lot of 'mysteries' are so heavily cliche.... well, now that's a mystery


    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAA look at my joke I made.

    It's pretty rare when I'm completely right. I'll sometimes get a few things right on, but really for the most part I'm not that great.

    Same with me. When it comes to TV, I very often get mysteries nearly or completely right. It's not because I'm a genius (although...), but because I've seen quite a lot of movies and TV shows, and the same patterns pop up again and again.

    Usually it's because (like others have said) the mysteries are so cliched. Sometimes it's because there are enough minute details presented that I've been able to pierce it together.

    Frankly, I am pretty bad at solving mysteries and would shamelessly go to my little sister for help, she's pretty good at that stuff.

    I usually do okay.

    Pumpkin fusses at me for ruining shows.

    I like to think I'm pretty good. Though I try to avoid using the 'genre-savvy' approach so I end up overthinking simple/clichéd mysteries a lot.

    I say I'm okay because while most of the time I can predict how a story will go no problem, I'd say that's more due to genre-savy and the fact that i've spent waaaaaay too much time on TV Tropes. Actual cleverness and deductive skills - I'd say I'm pretty average at those.

    No, not really. Though I am pretty good at finding my shoes.
