A Misinformed Liar Cannot Falsify Facts (Posted on 2022-10-17) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Three friends, Anya, Keir, and Lucy have 3 different actions whenever they come across potentially new information.

One is a Scientist, they are always correct about which statements are true and will always tell the truth.

Another is a Psychiatrist, they like to test people by lying and seeing their reactions - however, they are misinformed.

The remaining one is a Lapidary, they will always try to tell the truth, but they are also misinformed.

They receive information (or misinformation) about each other's behaviours and make the following statements:

  • Keir: Lucy is misinformed.
  • Anya: I am not misinformed.
  • Lucy: Anya is the Psychiatrist.
Determine the professions of the three friends in terms of the clues given above.
