Read the paragraph and the 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. A woman, while at the funeral of her own mother, met this guy whom she did not know. She thought this guy was amazing, so much 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 afterward. A few days later, she killed her sister.

Question: What is her motive in killing her sister? (give this some thought before you answer, then 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 thought she was dating the guy or something too. :lol: It's funny, because once you read it it makes perfect sense in a psychopathic way, but it never crossed my mind. :lol: I'd make a really crappy psychopath- among other things, I can't tell a lie to save my ass. This test doesn't surprise me. :lol:

I didn't get it last time it was posted but I remembered the answer this time. I guess that means I could be a psychopath if someone showed me how :retard:.

Answer: She was hoping that the guy would appear at the funeral again. I didn't even think of that. Which, to be honest, kind of bugs me. It's completely straightforwarded reasoning. A is associated with B. If A happens again, B is likely to happen again.

I'll bet Bill Gates got that right.

Not everything you read in a forward is genuine:
http://www.snopes.com/inboxer/hoaxes/sister.htm

"No, this question was not authored by a "famous American psychologist," nor does it come from "a genuine psychological test."

The assumption that all sociopaths approach problems with a "Whom can I kill to solve this" mentality (and that sociopaths believe everyone else thinks this way as well) is an erroneous assumption based upon a false stereotype. Most sociopaths would find this question as illogical as the rest of us and ponder a whole range of other possibilities (e.g., why didn't the girl strike up a conversation with the man at the funeral, examine the condolence book afterwards, or ask her sister about him?); rather than just blurting out the purported "typical" response, many of them would provide answers just as mainstream as those offered by us "normal" folks (e.g., one sister thought the other was involved with the mystery man and killed her sibling over an imagined romantic rivalry).

In other words, this isn't a question where all the psychopaths would go one way and everybody else would go another. As a quick 'n' easy way to separate the sheep from the murderous goats, it wouldn't work. Besides, no one hypothetical is ever going to reveal the state of any person's mental condition; whole batteries of multi-item tests are needed for that.

Not all psychopaths are rampaging killers, constantly on the hunt for their next victims. Many live law-abiding lives and outwardly appear quite normal. They lack a sense of right versus wrong, and they do not care about the people in their lives, not even their spouses or children; the risk to their own well-being is what keeps them, for the most part, on the straight and narrow. These are not healthy individuals to become involved with, but on the other hand, they are not necessarily mere heartbeats away from taking up the nearest hatchet and laying waste to the steno pool just because it's Tuesday.

A psychopath might think to murder her sister after their mother's death, but the motivation would more likely be one of inheritance. "Why settle for half an estate when only one person stands between me and all of it?" would be a more prevalent line of thought. "
