There are a few different types of puzzles used in FPS games but the most obvious are Jumping, Logistical (Press this button, get the power supply etc.) and Physics. Now, having to choose one is difficult because it depends on the implementation.
PLEASE NOTE: The map is for illustration purposes only. I’m not asking if you prefer THIS map.
I generally don’t like these because they test my ability to control the character’s movements. I’m not particularly good at that. They also rarely require and thinking, just jump and jump again. I never played Kreedz Climbing but I respect the concept of the mod. For me the worst thing is falling and dying. I think that’s just bad design.
By far the most common type of puzzle but getting very old and boring. Normally it’s just a simple sequence to complete. Sometimes the objectives are obscure, making it very annoying.
the new kid on the block, as far as puzzles are concerned. This type, more than any other, depends on excellent implementation, otherwise it’s just too easy or else incredibly hard.
Can you think of any other type of puzzle?

Well, the results were as expected, nothing surprising from this poll. All we need now is omebody to analyze HL2 for the different proportions!
