A "practical" puzzle or
a "logic" puzzle
which do you think would be most appropriate?
All I am trying to say is that solving some puzzles doesn't involve sensing and touching.
(it's no big deal, I don't really want my 2 weeks back)

There is a room with a door (closed) and three light bulbs. Outside the room there are three switches, connected to the bulbs. You may manipulate the switches as you wish, but once you open the door you can't change them. Identify each switch with its bulb.
Notice the closed door. No looking into the room, looking at shadows, etc.
The only way to do it is to turn one on for some time, switch it off, turn on another switch, and walk into the room. The one that's on is connected to the switch you just turned on, the bulb that's hot is the one you turned on first, and the cool bulb is connected to the switch you didn't touch.

Could you just plant them?
They're light bulbs, not flower bulbs ><

Well, I've found another way to solve this puzzle, but it's almost the exact same as the one you are all presenting.
Turn on two of the switches, wait some time, turn one of them off, go in.
The one the is on should be obvious, the one that you just turned off would be the one that is off but hot, and the cold one is the one you never touched.
The solution you provided is:
Turn on one switch, wait, then turn that one off, turn on another one, then walk in. Repeat the remaining steps from the previous example.
