How often, in your experience with LGs(not a OCT 2010 questi

Postby jd20132013 » Sun Oct 10, 2010 12:21 pm

How to put this...you know how when you're doing a type of question that you know, and you have certain inferences you've worked with before, and a question is asked, and your mind instantly jumps to an answer because in the past, when a question like that has been asked they generally put an inference into play in a certain way?

How often do those experienced educated guesses play out well for you

Does this make sense to anyone or is my sleep deprived brain still making no sense

It sure doesn't make any sense to me.

I think I understand what you're saying and the result really varies. It's the LG and every group has unique variables which makes it so prephrasing is just about impossible in my experience. I therefore prefer to avoid going with answers that jump out and usually make sure I can prove my answer right. When I don't have a chance to prove them right and just pick the one that jumps out I'd say it's 50/50 AT BEST.

Its tricky. The games are all pretty much the same, just separated by type. Within each type, the same kinds of questions pop up. I think if you know the game and type, past experience can lead you in the right direction, but dont be fooled and pick it without being 100% sure. One word in the rules can change the entire nature of the game, and Im sure LSAC builds things like that into the games to see who they can catch sleeping.

I mean obviously you prefer to be 100% sure. But on those questions where you're able to eliminate one or two questions there's often a sense you can get of the answer that would reasonably be asked.

at least that's what i'm hoping
