You are a contestant on a game show. There are three curtains. Behind one of the curtains is a new car. You are asked to choose one of the curtains. Lets say that you choose curtain #1. The host of the show - who knows where the car is so as not to end the game prematurely - opens curtain #3 and there is no car behind it. The host now gives you a choice. You can stay with curtain #1 or you can change your choice to curtain #2. The question now is: would it be to your advantage to stay with curtain #1, or would it be to your advantage to change to curtain #2 or would there be no advantage either way?

I Chose # 1.

I know I'm right. They showed #3 then offered me to change to number two... so I'd loose. Not falling for it. Its behind #1.

I don't think there would be an advantage either way but I would stay with curtain 1 because that's the curtain I choose first. If I second guessed myself by choosing curtain 2 and then I lost it would be harder on me if I choose curtain 1 and lost.
Weird maybe but I wouldn't beat myself up as bad since I went with my first instinct and lost rather than second guessing myself and lost.

re: "...I would stay with curtain 1..."



Why wouldn't you want to double your odds by switching to curtain #2?

Anyone agree with intrptr and TheLieWeLive?

Yes, the OP says that you do.
