Psycho Test

Read this question, come up with an answer and then scroll down to the bottom for the result. This is not a trick question. It is as it reads. No one I know has gotten it right, including me .


A woman , while at the funeral of her own mother, meets a guy whom she did not know. She thought this guy was simply ' amazing' , very much of her dream guy, she believed him to be just 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 FIRST sister.
Question: What is her motive in killing her sister?

(Give this some thought before you answer).
SCROLL DOWN ............

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

If you answered this correctly , you think like a psychopath . This
was a test by a famous American Psychologist used to test if one has
the same mentality as a killer. Many arrested serial killers took part
in the test and answered the question correctly. If you didn't answer
the question correctly, good for you.

I probably should not admit this, but I got the answer correct. However, I DO NOT think like a psychopath. I am simply able to see many perspectives of the same issue.

I got this question correct as well... who knows what the future holds for us all.

my thought that maybe the first sister was really ugly. maybe i'm shallow haha

Rene said...

The answer was blatantly obvious to me and would be to anyone investigating a homicide. What I don't find credible is that this question would be used to determine whether a subject would be capable of homicide or not.

I got this right immediately. I even stopped to think of something less obvious because I thought it was too easy to be correct.

This is a bullshit test and a myth spread through the net. If you really think a psychopath thinks in this way then you need to spend some time learning about the disorder.

Tim D said...

I answered this correctly as well. What I figure though is that thinking like a psychopath isn't the bad part, acting like one is where things start to go awry.

Meh I've heard this before. Its simple. I was expecting there to be a twist or something, not so strait forward.

And this proves someone is a psychopath... how?

Just because someone successfully guesses an answer to something like this doesn't prove anything.

Not to call you out M Lynn,but psychopaths don't usually think they are out of the ordinary either.

My answer:

"She was batshit insane?"

Scott said...

IMO, it's a question w/ an answer logically derived at more so then a question w/ a psychologically based answer.

FYI- I figured out the answer instantly.

My answer was, "Her sister got a sex change without her knowing and turned out to be the guy"... Does this make me more or less messed up than the people that got it right? LOL

This just proves that you think that a woman who kills her sister is a psychopath. It says more about our societies views on murder than it does on our own personal mental health.

Anonymous said...

It's more of a test to see if you can think with logic, which is a very common trait of serial killers. The scenario is a bit disturbing, but then again, it was a study to test known killers.

I figured she killed her for money.

It's not that unusual to have gotten this question correct, considering that one in 5 people is a sociopath. Now, this doesn't mean that you are a killer or even capable of killing, it just means your thought process is different from other peoples.
I also got this question correct, and the first time I took this test I was 9 years old and the answer was blatantly obvious to me then.

I thought the guy was a hallucination and that she became schizophrenic from the loss of her mother.

Alex said...

a lot of psycos around here i see

The answer would be more elusive if the epilogue of the story was:
"Her sister died the next week."
The question therefore would be:
"How did her sister die?"

Anyone who has read any Freud could tell you this answer. I got it right away.

Anonymous said...

To all of you out there who got it right and are feverishly defending yourselves: psychopaths tend to rationalize what they do, too.

Hahaha. Psychopaths.

i got the answer right. but then im a psychopath. go me?

Richiepooh said...

Thank god I got it wrong, Cheers!

I was convinced that her sister was a slut who needed her eyes cutting out so she could no longer see me as I wear her breasts in a bra and her virgina that I would leave around my penis as I went on the bus.

Anonymous said...

So... did the guy end up showing up at the sister's funeral??? Otherwise, the whole murder would have been pointless.. :/

Anonymous said...

It seems kind of rash to me that being a psycho/sociopath can be determined by an easy lateral thinking question. I got the question right because the question itself led itself to the answer.

I should just kill all of you.

Anonymous said...

It's funny how so many people wrote that the correct answer was obvious to them. I would of never thought of that and I had no clue why she would kill her sister? I'm thinking she is just crazy, just like all of you who think just like her!! haha

Anonymous said...

I said that it was her estranged sisters husband, one she had never met- after discovering he was married to her far off sister of all people, full of grief, she kills her sister.

.. I like my idea better D:

I FAIL TO SEE A PROBLEM!

Anonymous said...

i agree with you^^
thats exactly what i thought. that the sister was dating this dream guy so she had to kill him so she could have him.

Anonymous said...

my first thought was that she found out her sister and he were seeing each other!!!

This is no trick or riddle. It is humor.

For all of you who are outraged at this test because you got it right, and you are thinking to yourself that you are not a psychopath: just note that it said if you did get it right, you think like a psychopath, not that you are one.
There is a specific mentality that psychopaths have that make them able to commit the crimes they do. It is not bullshit, its proven. However, it is probabalistic, like any other social science fact.The people who are psychopaths tend to all think like this, not that you are definitely a psychopath for thinking like this.
Calm down

my answer exactly like this... hoooo.. am i a psychopath??

PAUL ELFIS said...

I GOT IT RIGHT AND FUNNY ENOUGH - OR IT MAYBE A COINCIDENCE- BUT I HAVE A SUDDEN URGE TO STRANGLE MY EX WIFE.

Shelley said...

I agree that getting this right doesn't prove you are a psychopath. I think the question is just a logic problem. I thought about it for approximately sixty seconds and then got it right, and it seemed only logical, not crazy, to come up with that answer.

Anonymous said...

I was so focused on the capitalized FIRST that i couldn't come up with the answer.

Anonymous said...

I thought maybe the sister also fell in love with him, so she was killing off her competition.

Anonymous said...

I got it right too. The obvious answer is that the man she liked was married to her sister, and had to kill her in order to have him. However, as I KNOW that not many people have gotten it "right" there was no way that was the answer. It really isn't that hard to come up with the right answer if you think about it. It doesn't mean you're a psychopath or whatever...

Anonymous said...

I thought it was because the sister was sleeping with the guy...

Anonymous said...

me thinks alot of people are lying about getting it right.

chrisrussell_1024 said...

The answer was actually simple all you have to do is ask yourself why would she kill her sister after falling for a man at her mothers funeral and the answer basically smacks you in the face

kelina11 said...

I answered the same as the Feb 19th Anonymous, though not in that much detail... I assumed she found out she fell in love with her brother in law and wanted the sister out of the way. Seems much more plausible than killing her sister and then just assuming the guy would show up for another funeral.

Anonymous said...

Uh... I think the actual test is to ask the patient what she would do in that situation to meet the man again (the answer being to kill another relative). This version is way too easy; if the question itself is not transparent enough, then giving the clue that you are supposed to think like a sociopath definitely is.

Anonymous said...

Well, I didn't get it right, but I was fixated on the all-caps "FIRST sister." Which seemed unnecessary, but it was emphasized, so I thought it must be important. Oh, well. Not sure if I would have gotten it without that "FIRST."

Anonymous said...

Haha, now I feel awful, I thought she liked her brother-in-law and killed her sister to be with him... I'm not a psychopath, I swear!...maybe...

Pradeep Chauhan said...

I got wrong answer, but i thing Can any question tell us that we are on psychopath????????

Anonymous said...

I think that a normal person is not crasy anough to kill a sister in order to see the gue again. you will never do it in real life. Thats why normal people don't get the answer right.
