I thought this was pretty interesting! Read the question and don't cheat by looking at the answer until you try to answer it..lol I hope you all have a great day and let me know how you did on this test. =) The psychopath test. If you pass this test, you may need to see a doctor. To find out, please read the question below, and try to come up with the right answer. This is NOT a trick question. The question is exactly what it is; there are no games. No one I know so far has got it right . . . A woman went to the funeral of her own mother. There, she met a guy whom she did not know. She thought the man was amazing. Really amazing. She fell in love with him right there, but never asked for his number and could not find him again. A week later she killed her sister. Question: What is her motive for killing her sister? Give this some thought before you look at the answer. - - - Answer (highlight text below to read): She was hoping 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. 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.

well, I did not have an explanation at all. the answer made the whole story looks like a joke cause I do not see any connection here.

It is really really strange thinking like that. maybe it is a kind of logical when you deeply think about it. nice one, thanks for sharing.

I couldn't make sense of it either, I said that there was no connection, therefore I couldn't come up with an answer at all. Thanks, have a great day!

Oh, man! I was thinking "how can killing her sister have anything to do with that man she met". Nothing made sense from the data that you gave us. Boy, I got that one way wrong and wouldn't have even thought that was the answer. And, you know what, some people really think that way, that's what's scary.

Yeah I couldn't figure it out either. One of my good friends asked me this question and I told her, that the lady killing her sister has absolutely nothing to do with her seeing that man. I was confused..lol But it is rather interesting. Thanks for the post!
