Shouldn't it be "are you dead?"??? Because you can't possibly answer that with a yes if you are dead! But you could say yes in your sleep...

My question would be:

Are you honest?

Because if I said no, then I could be telling the truth or lying and saying I am honest (and the same if I said yes!)

If you are posed a question that does not have a yes or no answer, is it necessarily dishonest to answer with a yes?

Secondly, is an honest person strictly limited to telling the truth. I consider myself a generally honest person, but that does not mean I never have told a lie.

FYI, please post something with a HARDER answer.

do you tell lies? Then you would answer no. Pretty much any question that is answered with a no would work in this case.

However, I realize that I might not understand your concept here. Please let me know if I am missing something. Otherwise, this is no riddle.

Hi mr _thinker... (may I call you 'the ' :))? welcome to the Den! What tends to happen is that questions that don't 'grab you' after a while get a) forgotten b) ignored. This one is a couple of years old and the person who set it is probably long gone. Don't let that deter you....have a look at the more recent puzzles. There are some brilliant question setters in here.

This one.

Although, technically, being honest doesn't mean that you cannot say the wrong answer unintentionally, or make up a stupid answer without the intention of properly answering the question.

Those are my simple and more tricky understandings, which are both right, I hope :)

How about "How do you spell NO?", "How many roads must a man walk down before he becomes a man?", or "Do you really truly understand women?"

Maybe my name is Dead Lying Liar. Then if someone asks me, "are you Dead?" or "are you Lying?" or "are you a Liar?", I would have to say yes.

Warning: religious overtones (The official answer precluded certain points of view)

If you were truly an honest man even death would not be able to stop you answering honestly

Strangely I can only think of one such man
