Psychological Test: This is a story about a girl. Her mother dies and while she’s attending the funeral she meets a man. She’s never seen him before in her life, but she feels an instant connection and falls head over heels in love with him. A few days later, this happy girl kills her own sister. What was her motive? Think of your answer and then read on…If you said “She was hoping the guy would appear at the funeral again”, congratulations! You’re a psychopath. The Snook, I am happy to report, is not a psychopath. My own results were inconclusive, as my manic tendency to speed read and skip ahead meant that I read the answer before I’d even finished the question. So in other words, even if I am a psychopath, I’m a crappy haphazard one. 🙂

(Yeah, yeah, I know the whole thing is crap. I did find it on Snopes. I just thought it was amusing though.)

  1. Hot-diggity, I’m normal! (?) I think after playing too many mind-puzzles/games in college (You know, A man is dead in a field with only a rope – what happened?, etc.), my mind ran a very long track of deducing nothing of the like.
    I very much enjoy Snopes, by the way.

  2. I’ve done this test before, and AM a psychopath. Shocker 😉

  3. What if your motive was “to eat her brains”?

  4. You’d be an alien or Hannibal Lector.

  5. Cool, I’m not a psychopath either. Much-needed confirmation 🙂

  6. Heh. I’m not sure it’s “confirmed” just yet, Claire. I mean, the test says that everyone that gets the answer right is a psychopath… not that all psychopaths get the question right. 🙂

  7. And Dan, every time I see your comment, I laugh. That was great. 🙂

  8. as your sister, i didn’t feel i could properly answer the question. it seems that, subconsciously, “sister” and “murder” go hand-in-hand with you lately…what’s up with that?! 🙁

  9. Hahaha… I didn’t think of that. (I keep having dreams where Amy murders people and I have to conceal the bodies.) Actually I haven’t had one in a while though. So that’s good.

  10. So, Dan, when is your page coming out? I’d enjoy reading more of your commentary.
