“Proof I am Dracula” Paradox

This is known as the “Proof I am Dracula” paradox.  It relies on two assumptions:

  1. Everyone is afraid of Dracula.
  2. Dracula is afraid of only me.

Therefore, I am Dracula

Since everyone is afraid of Dracula, Dracula is afraid of Dracula. So Dracula is afraid of Dracula, but also is afraid of no one but me. Therefore I must be Dracula!
