Psychopath test

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  • Factual information might be outdated.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.

Duh, I thought it was cos the man was the girl’s brother in law, so she had to kill her sister so that she could marry him.

She thought that if the guy would come to her mothers funeral maybe he would go to her sisters.

Someone in my baking class did this on me today and got really worried as I answered instantly. I thought it was the logical answered from the information given. I also never though it was a real test. Thanks to SNOPES for confirming that.

depends on the social background and circustance of death.we can see that sibling play off would account..its based on the enviroment and personal and maybe finacial circo of said case then then changes everything people base there life on means and sorry ton say a limited emotional attachment in todays society…and also so depends on the growth of 2 people together……….and even then the natural instinct is to survive..holder of affection an love..possesion of goods or person empowers us..human kind the most cunning animal u will ever encounter..the worst predetor..seek,own,control,kill,only we can change our basic instinct,advanced race.dont think so.we still cant live with each other,xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
