Where are you most likely to encounter a Johari Window?
A: While opening mail B: In a 15th century cathedral
C: While performing open heart surgery D: At a self-help seminar

[Reveal] Spoiler: +1
Keith’s +1 is his very good friend, Elliott, who says he's leaning towards C because Johari sounds like a smart doctor who invented the opening flap of the chest during surgery. They both rule out A & B without talking much about D other than Keith saying, "I can't eliminate D, but..."

[Reveal] Spoiler: Answer
Keith guesses C
The correct answer is D: At a self-help seminar
Keith wins $50,000

Second commercial break

I don't think it's A (unless it's the see-through part of the envelope), and I know it isn't B or C. If I still have it, I'd probably use the 50:50 and hope A and D weren't the two remaining answers.
