Do You Think Like A Psychopath?

Read this question, come up with an answer. This is not a trick question.

It is as it reads. No one I know so far has got it right.

A woman, while at the funeral of her own mother, met a guy whom she did not know. She thought the man was amazing. She believed him to be her dream hero so much so 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.



Question:
What is her motive for killing her sister?

Give this some thought before you look at the answer below.



Answer:
She was hoping the guy would appear at the funeral again.

If you answered this correctly, you think like a psychopath. This supposedly was a test by a famous American Psychologist used to test if one has the same mentality as a killer.

Several arrested serial killers were given test and answered the question correctly.
If you didn't answer the question correctly, good for you. If you did,admit it, and look for a good doctor.

Hello,
Do you have other questions to know if a person is a physcopath?
I answered the question right, but it I just used common sense.
I mean, I can't stand seeing blood, and once I saw people fighting in my school cafetria and I left.I get sad when I know somebody dies even if I hate that person.
Maybe I got it right because I read too many gross books, that show how evil people are.
Should I be concerned that I answered it right.
Bye,
Not a physcopath.

Replaying to above commenter:
Its not common sense. I mean, many psycopaths don't kill, the sadism within the human species satisies one's need for destruction.
Even tought you may not fight, cause confrontations,etc. you still enjoy the fact that people are dying and suffering.
It's instinctive.
At least in my country, sadism is not a crime.

Reply from whom answered correct, but will not kill other person.

Hello second anonymus,
So I could be a physcopath and not kill.
I don't enjoy people getting hurt in real life, but in books I'm thrilled by it.Is that wierd. I read too much about vampires sucking blood from a person's throat, or a sword being pushed deep into someones heart.But it's all fake and I know where to draw the line.
I also hate mushy stuff on T.V, or sweet stories trying to teach something. I like depressing things that teach us life is not fair.
But I am honest, and I smile a lot from the bottom of my heart. And I love helping people, and people think I'm the nicest person. Am I decieving them. No, I think not. No one can guess my true nature.
Bye,
from first commentor.

Oh, come on. This is a bogus test; the answer was completely obvious. "Think about it"? Hah! I knew the answer before you asked the question.

If you don't come up with a better question soon then I will hunt you down and kill your dog. Psychopath my ass! I'm just a mailman (a letter carrier to you young affirmative action gender-neutral punks).

Okay, now you've gone and gotten me mad...

To first commenter this link explains why this is a load of shit

You can not determine the physiological states of some one with one question.

Just remember that the blood lust is inherent in everyone.

psychopathic tendances are often based on logic, which can be mistaken as sense, him re-apperaing is a logical out come of the act, but it isnt sensable or even intelegent

If you were a psychopath, you would already know it,from a very young age. You would notice how weak and stupid the people around you are and know that you were different.

You would quickly realize that there are consequences for being different, and then you would learn to hide it. Psychopaths do not worry that 'they may be psychopaths'. They already know that they are and they will generally enjoy it. This is why they do not respond to treatment. You can't fix something that isn't broken. It's evolution, and there's nothing wrong with that.

Surely the true question to test to see if you're a psychopath would be:

"Do you think it was 'OK' to kill those people then hide their bodies?"

Answer that one correctly and I think you're in trouble.

Got it right. Just because you can figure out someone else's motives for doing something crazy, doesn't make you crazy. Unless all the police detectives I know are crazy...hmmm..there might be something to this after all.

I need the time-line and order of events. You specify very little information on the subject. Just because someone shows signs of psychopathy doesn't mean that they are simple.
The subject did not ask for this man's number... she, for some reason, felt it unnecessary. She felt that, through some other means, just as solid, she would re-meet this love of her life, easily. What other means of communication, what other type of realtionship with this other could she have that trumps a question for a number?
This is of great importance. I'm not satisfied with, 'she was under the impression that he would come back'... when he didn't, or did, she killed her own sister?
It doesn't add up, it's too easy.
Maybe I'm missing something, maybe I'm ultra-un-psychopatic... if so, then please, set me straight.

I dont see why she would care if she saw the guy again or not. and there are more efficient ways of going about it if that was her goal. maybe she was just bored and killing her sister was entetaining
