Man goes to see a psychiatrist. Upon sitting on the couch the psychiatrist explains that from his acute observation skills he was able to narrow down the man's issues to one of two issues:

You are either inconsistent or conceited. Since the human brain is finite, there are a finite number of propositions p 1 p n that you believe. But unless you are conceited, you know that you sometimes make mistakes, and that not everything you believe is true. Therefore, if you are not conceited, you know that at least some of the p are false. Yet you believe each of the p. individually.

So what was the man's diagnoses?

The greatest challenge to any thinker is stating the problem in a way that will allow a solution.
