Read this question, come up with an answer and then check the extended entry 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, that she fell in love with him right there but never asked for his number and could not find him. A few days later she killed her sister.

Question: What is her motive in killing her sister? (Give this some thought before you answer)

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. If you got the answer correct, please let me know so I can take you off of my e-mail list unless that will tick you off, then I'll just be extra nice to you from now on.


Alright, the above is pretty much how I originally saw the question/answer the first time, but Snopes blows that myth out of the water.

What, you don't know about Snopes? Good grief, Snopes is the place to find out all about urban legends and the like. There's also no truth to the rumor that it's run by a Nigerian who needs your help...

Whew. Thank goodness for Snopes; I got it "correct." (But correct with an appropriate level of horror and revulsion, I assure you!)

I was way off the track, but then I have no killer instinct ... well until the mosquitos start bitin' me, but I count that as self-defense.

I had to look. I thought the guy was a cop and he had given her a clue her sister had some hand in the death of her mother.

I'm not sure how to feel about my gf getting the right answer. ;)

Not even a clue as to what that was about...Thank God.

All I could think was maybe the sister ran over the womans dog or something or really pissed her off unrelated to the rest of it.

Thank God my brain doesn't work like that.
(And yes 'like that' was TOO necessary, Teddy-poo!)
