Some of my favorite puzzles/questions.  They are typically my favorites because 1) they are highly counter-intuitive (of course I most prefer the ones that befuddled me), and 2) they shed light on human cognition and/or logical errors we commonly make.  Thus the most interesting puzzles are not the most difficult ones, but rather the ones where an incorrect answer seemed most obviously correct.
