    Alrighty then, have you all heard of the one question psychopath test? It's supposed to be one question that would see if you think like a psychopath. So here's the story.

    A girl was at the funeral of her mother. A young man came in who was very handsome and she fell in love with him lock, stock, and barrel right there at her own mother's funeral. The young man left after the funeral before the girl could get his contact information.

    A month later the girl killed her only sister. Can you tell me why? (Don't scroll down until you answer this question)

    She killed her only sister because she would find the young man at her sister's funeral since he came to her mother's funeral.

    Supposedly, if you answered the question correct, it's supposed to indicate that you think like a psychopath. Of course it's not true but it is an interesting story and would make a wonderful episode on Law and Order. :)

    Ha ha. Very cool.
    I answered that the man fell in love with the sister and so she was murdered in a fit of jealousy.
    But the answer given is way more, well, psycho!!!

    So where do I fit in? My thought that the man ended up with her sister and so it would only make sense that she would kill her.

    Don't know cherub. I kept thinking the man would die so I don't know what that makes me either. I don't think the test works. So I guess we're all OK.... for the moment anyway.

    I am happy to know that I am not a psychopat. :) Interesting to find out how many more ideas would people get that are different. Are there any other tests like this? This is pretty funny and interesting.

    I have seen this before and I agree they are quite amusing. I would love to do a search and find some more, for entertainment purposes of course! It's funny how different everyone thinks. I guess that's what makes this world so interesting.

    I can honestly say I didn't have a clue, even after trying to work it out for a good 10 minutes. I asked my girlfriend and she didn't know either. For this, I am of course very glad.

    I assumed the sister and mystery man got together so I guess I was wrong too, thank goodness:]

    Well, I guess I'm a little out of place here. I'd say it took me a good seven minutes before I thought of the answer, but I did get it eventually.

    I thought maybe that the mystery man was somehow connected to the sister to begin with, but then thought it was too simple an answer. Then I thought it had something to do with her only sister, but couldn`t make anything of that. Then I was thinking, "Well, she met him at her mother's funeral, and so maybe it has something do with that..." and it seemed to click. Her mother's funeral was their first meeting, so one could assume that he would also show up at her sister's funeral, hence, the killing of her sister.

    I’m not sure how I feel right now. Definitely feel out of place... :eek:

    If it makes you feel better Myrrdin, I also correctly guessed the answer. It probably took me about three minutes. I don't feel that I'm a psychopath though since I was trying to figure out the right "psychopath" choice. Other answers came to mind first, but then I started to think of why the girl might kill her sister if she was indeed crazy. At that point it wasn't too hard to deduce the "logical" choice. ;)

    I agree that the question was a lot of fun. I totally could see a show like Law and Order doing an episode like this too!

    This was a great question. I didn't get the correct answer. I, like many thought she was upset because her sister was in love with the man but I have to try it on others to see how they respond.

    Chris Carter should have done something like it on The X Files. Anyways, I'm happy I'm no longer the only psychopath here.:eek:

    I guess I'm a psychopath since I had the right answer. But then again, I could be another "Mr. Monk". LOL I love shows like Law and Order so I think more like a detective than I ever did before. Interesting question though.

    Well I had the right answer before I finshed reading the question all the way so I guess I am a psychi psychopath. Interesting though, I had never heard of a "test" like this before.
