I liked the candle puzzle: that was a new one.
One quibble with a choice (although it appears to have been suspiciously effective*) is that this talk of “data” seems to be conflated with the framing of the scenarios.
Use of framing and priming for poor old human brains is both our super power and our Kryptonite, when it comes to thinking. Your examples illustrate that nicely.
I like the idea of shaking up one’s viewpoint as a practice to explore options more efficiently.
