What might we say about this person?
The answer to this riddle is a common object, phrase, or idiom


Second attempt

Perhaps we can say that this person

Knows the ropes


They appear to be thinking about piles of rope.

Original incorrect guess

I think that this person is

Forward Thinking


The things in the thought bubble look like stone wards, so perhaps the person is "four ward thinking" which sounds like "forward thinking".

  • $\begingroup$ Sorry, what kind of 'ward' do these resemble? I'm struggling to make out what they are! (Probably my eyes' fault...) EDIT: Just seen you edited in a link. $\endgroup$ – Stiv Feb 27 at 14:51
  • $\begingroup$ Unfortunately, I'm not seeing any 'wards' either :( $\endgroup$ – Avi Feb 27 at 14:55

    $\begingroup$ +1 because your second guess beat me to it. Could also be "I should think not" ("think knot"). It doesn't help that I can't tell if those are coiled ropes, woolen hats, or piles o' whatzit. $\endgroup$ – COTO Feb 27 at 15:14
  • $\begingroup$ Well done, that's it! $\endgroup$ – Avi Feb 27 at 15:18

Perhaps this person

Has "multiple thoughts" because they think in multi-piles? Probably also a bit of a stretch.
