# Why Brilliant is brilliant

I like solving problems which do not require mathematical prowess. The puzzles here hit the sweet spot. Hoping to exercise my brain muscles and have boatloads of fun in the process. This beats studying hands down. And I do not feel guilty while I procrastinate because technically, I'm solving some problems. This might even be considered 'Studying' in some distant parallel universe, heck this could even be a part of their curriculum. If that's the case, I would like parallel me to ace that exam. God bless the Internet and Brilliant. :)

Make no mistake, I like Maths (I'm a budding Engineer, so I know some of it as well). It's a beautiful piece of art. But personally I prefer solving riddles and puzzles like the ones here. They are by no means less intriguing or require less effort than the ones we solve in our classes and colleges. But here, you can solve something without touching a pen or paper. Only logic and instinct is required. And that is awesome. Don't you think so?

It's nice to hear that you like Brilliant.org, and also solving puzzles. Solving puzzles is really a very good exercise of mind. But always try to become a mathematical prowess. Mathematics is a beauty. It's not something which requires bundles of formulae to memorise, it's all in your mind. And a good puzzler is always a good mathematician! Cheers!
