Psychopath test


Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 15 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have, to put it mildly, mellowed.

I'm not a believer in brushing the past under the carpet. I've written some offensive rubbish on here in the past: deleting it and pretending it never happened doesn't change that. I hope that stumbling across something that's 15 years old won't offend anyone anew, because I hope that people can understand that what I thought and felt and wrote about then is probably very different to what I think and feel and write about now. It's a relic of an (albeit recent) bygone era.

So, given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views may well have changed in the last 15 years. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find utterly cringeworthy today.
  • This post might use words or language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate, offensive, embarrassing, or all three.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken, and embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

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
