One of those annoying aptitude things with a twist…

August 30, 2006

I just came across something I last encountered 6 years ago. It’s an interesting little problem  designed to tell you a little something about yourself.

A tale: A woman, while at the funeral of her own mother, met a guy whom she did not know. She thought this guy was amazing. She believed him to be her dream guy so much, that she fell in love with him right there, But never asked for his number and could not find him. A few days later she killed her sister.

A question: What is her motive for killing her sister?


Now spend a little time thinking about it before you go to the answer down below.

It was apparently designed by a famous psychologist trying to test for abnormal thought patterns usually associated with psychopaths and the answer is “She was hoping the guy would appear at the funeral again”. Apparently, if you got it right you think like a psychopath.

As long as you don’t act on it, though, we can all still be friends. If you are the kind of person who does act on those compulsions I have some people I don’t like I would love you to meet.
Actually, about a third of my friends, it turns out, think like psychopaths. Fun people. Hooray.

Really.
