Tips Are You a Psychopath?


I stumbled across this little one-question quiz and found it pretty interesting.

Read the scenario and consider the question, then post your (honest) answers masked as SPOILERS so we can keep it going for awhile. Could be fun!

This isn’t a demonstrative quiz; that is, simply because you may have ‘the answer’ doesn’t mean you’re a psychopath. But it would suggest you have a tendency to think like one. ;)


While at her own mother's funeral, a girl meets a man she doesn't know. He is amazing and she thinks he might be her dream guy - and while reflecting after the service she’s pretty sure he could be the love of her life.

However, she never asked for his name or number before he slipped away, and afterwards she could not find anyone who knew who he was.

A few days later, the girl kills her own sister, making it look like an accident.

So here’s the Question: Why did she do it?

Well obviously she was hoping the guy would show back up at the funeral lol!

Only a real psycho would trash a thread that quickly... ;)

Haha lol!

Yes only a true psycho would trash a thread so fast lol! XD

Hmm very interesting thread! I was going to cheat and search the intertubes for the answer but then was very curious to know if I really am a psychopath! :D

(I more than likely am though!)

Hmm well I am thinking here... It's really crazy how she would just kill her own sister like that and then try to make it look like an accident!

She's freaking nuts that is for sure!

Hmm... Maybe she killed her own mother too!!

Holy guacamole! She needs to be thrown into a cage and the key must be melted down into maybe a nice toy dog or something to maybe play a good game of monopoly because it is not wise to throw away perfectly good metal you know... But she must never see the light of day evil spawn of Satan!

Maybe she did it though because ... I really am clueless... Is there maybe more information you forgot to add or something? :D

Shit that's a brilliant answer!

You are a genius!

I am almost adamant that this is why she did it - it makes a hell of a lot of sense now that I think about it.

If the man she really loves came because of the mother - then there could be a connection between them like a family and maybe if the sister has been wasted she is hoping he will show up again because of some kind of family relationship or bonding!

Shit I am getting scared here! XD there are far more psychos on Android forums than I ever could have imagined!

Oh, I dunno - it was just Sol who worked it out, so he might be the only one ;)

(Or he could just be logical: if the only thing you know about this guy is that he attended a family funeral, then the only way you know to possibly find him is another family funeral. Making it look like an accident would be necessary because you've no chance of profiting from it if you are in jail. And remember that not only is this an abstract puzzle, which is different from devising and carrying out such a course of action in real life, but you've been told what she did and have to figure out her reasoning, rather than being presented with the scenario and having to come up with a course of action yourself. Would asking people to do that provide a better test of psychopathy? I don't know, though it would miss people who might be genuinely callous & manipulative but lacked the imagination to come up with this answer).

Tru' that.
More questions please.
#7 dontpanicbobby, Dec 12, 2017
I need another family member...Any volunteers?
#8 SolApathy, Dec 12, 2017
Is the East Coast to far for a reunion? I think we're cousins.
#9 dontpanicbobby, Dec 12, 2017
Actually I did wonder whether the girl's sister was the best family member to pick. If the connection was to the mother then perhaps one of her siblings might have had a higher chance of success? Or one of her co-workers perhaps? This could rapidly get out of hand...

Next question

Why do you keep so much Saran Wrap around?
#11 dontpanicbobby, Dec 12, 2017
Because Dexter taught me well.
#12 SolApathy, Dec 12, 2017
I thought it was for wrapping breadfruits? But I guess that would work too.
#13 dontpanicbobby, Dec 12, 2017
The only dexter i will know is from Dexters lab..
#14 Milo Willamson, Jan 12, 2018
Loved that show!!

I don't need to take no stinkin' quiz/test, I think we all know the answer ;)
#15 Clementine_3, Jan 12, 2018
You have to, because it goes AROUND stuff... ;)
#16 rootabaga, Jan 12, 2018
Yea but are you REALLY a Psychopath?

#17 shalemail, Jan 12, 2018
Hmm I am very keen to know what the official answer is though... Hmm... I iz wondering here...

I wonder can you give the answer? :D

I sometimes wonder if I am a psychopath... When I see somebody killing a poor defenceless cockroach I feeling like killing the evil mindless maniac that person truly is!

Let the bodies hit the FLOOORRRR!!!

#18 Stinky Stinky, Jan 12, 2018
Kinda fits with what started the thread:
Food: there's always food at a post-funeral gathering
Sex: She wanted the guy, badly enough to off her sister.
Money: er, well, two out of three ain't bad. ;)
#19 rootabaga, Jan 12, 2018
Sorry I stopped reading what you were going on about as I only care about myself said the psychopath.
#20 Shotgun84, Jan 12, 2018
This is perhaps a purer test.

If you load toilet paper so it spools off from the bottom, that’s another big sign you’re likely a psychopath. ;)

^---- What does it say about you if you take the time to reverse that.
#22 LV426, Jan 16, 2018 at 5:56 PM
It's a commercial fixture in a public building, albeit not a post office!! :) Absent a key one can't reverse it, so I guess if someone did that would make them a criminal. But a correct criminal. ;) :D
