Re: I'm stump v. I'm stuck

None of the definitions linked are correct, because the adjective cited in your first link is 'stumped', not 'stamped'.

See this definition here.

Does I stumped=I confess here?

Thank you.

No, it's part of the example sentence given in that link.
For a while I was stumped, I confess.
Rearranging that sentence we get:
I confess that I was stumped for a while.

Stumped is an adjective. "I stump" doesn't mean anything.
