A sign on the barber’s door says “I shave only those who do not shave themselves”.

Riddle: A sign on the barber’s door says “I shave only those who do not shave themselves”. Does the barber shave himself?

The answer of this riddle is nothing. Actually, it has no answer at all because it is a paradox.  According to the sign on the barber’s door, the barber only shaves those who do not shave themselves. In this case, if the barber wants to shave himself, he should not shave himself.

 

Yes, you heard that right! Whether the barber can shave himself or not is a mystery as he does not shave those who shave themselves. This is where the paradox is. It is not possible to answer this riddle because there is no answer to this riddle.

Answer:  There is no answer; it’s a paradox. It cannot be made to work.
