I found this puzzle on Qzone, a popular social app in China.

What of your things other people use it by their own mouths, you use it your own hands.

I haven't found a solution to this puzzle yet.


Here is the original puzzle, and I expect a better translation:

你的什么东西别人用它时就用口,你用它时就用手?

  • $\begingroup$ Just running through my basic chinese it is closer to : what of your things other people use it by their own mouths, you use it your own hands. Its a small difference mainly the what of yours. Which I suspect supports C. Woods answer. Side note based on the fact I know all of those characters indicates to me this is primarily aimed at like 5 year olds... $\endgroup$ – Going hamateur Aug 3 '16 at 13:50
  • $\begingroup$ @Goinghamateur Yeah, personally I also suspect it targets at pre-school children. This makes Dianafreedom's answer less reasonable :) $\endgroup$ – nalzok Aug 3 '16 at 13:56

I would guess

your name. Other people call you by your name, but you rarely say it yourself; instead you usually write it down on forms or as a signature.
