I love puzzles, but not the crosswords, sudokus or other "normal" puzzles. Those simply don't have an end result I consider to be worthwhile. Sure, it would hone my ability to solve those types of riddles but it would still just be a separate skill or talent that would emerge as a result.
Of course I have great admiration for a guy who can solve three Rubik's cubes while juggling them in about five minutes, or other extreme activities, but for me personally these are not what I aim for.
I have been wishing to figure out the world around me ever since I was eight, if only to prove there was no room for bullies in there... As such I am now watching a video on Youtube about Collective Intelligence.
