Warning: This post was published more than 11 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 11 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
This seems to be almost living in my inbox recently:
This is a genuine psychological test. It is a story about a girl.
While at the funeral of her own mother, she met a guy whom she did not know. She thought this guy was amazing, so much her dream guy she believed him to be, that she fell in love with him there and then… A few days later, the girl killed her own sister.
Question: What is her motive in killing her sister?
If this actually worked, then I would be some kind of raging psychopath, given that I didn’t just get the ‘psychopath’ answer, I got it instantly. It was perfectly obivous to me. I’d love to sit and debunk it myself, but Snopes does a much better job than I would.
And if you’re interested, the answer’s there too.
