4. I admit that he might be an INFP.

Look at the red and green triangles, one is 2 units tall and the other is 3 units tall. walla

I think the graph paper is wrong though.
light green=8 blocks
yellow=7 blocks
red=8*3*1/2=12 blocks
dark green=5*2*1/2=5 blocks
__________________________
32 blocks total

now for area of both big triangles, which have same height and width
13*5*1/2=65/2=32.5

graph paper is crap

Heh, the top "triangle" isn't a triangle at all. Our eyes just think that the angular line is straight

7. hadn't noticed that before, but now it looks really apparent. thnx

A colleague showed me this a couple of years back so I've had some time to think it over

If the top is a true triangle then the gradient of the slope has to be equal to the gradient of the red and green triangles...

But 5/13 != 2/5 != 3/8 so it's not a triangle, and neither is the bottom one. The extra square is generated because the green and red triangles in the top figure creates a concave slope, while the bottom slope is a convex. The area between the convex and the concave creates that extra square.

Ok, enough derailing of this thread
