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 someone 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 - you're normal.


#2

Okay, I was thinking that it might have been her sisters new husband. No need to ask for a phone number -- she already knew it. And her not being able to find the person after the funeral is irrelevant.

Okay, I tried. Guess I'm not a psychopath.


#3

Damn, I'm a psycho. But someone's told me this one before, so maybe I'm not that bad of a psycho...


#4

I thought she killed her sister to increase her share of the inheritance from her mother's estate.


#5

I was thinking her motive was to recover more/all of her mother's estate. Forget about the guy she met. With enough cash she will meet the "perfect" man again. Many wills and/or state probate laws consider a beneficiary under a will to have died simultaneously with the decedent when their deaths occur within a short period of time of one another (often 30 days). I must be a greedy son of a bitch. Perhaps counseling is in order.


#6

I guessed right...but luckily I've heard this before. It's a very interesting question though, or rather it's application is pretty damn cool.


#7

I've never heard this before and I figured it out in a matter of seconds. Just call me Patrick Bateman.


#8

I am definitely a psycho, or great minds just think alike. Took about two seconds to figure out.


#9

I figured she did it because the sister must've killed her mom and had nothing to do with prince charming.


#10

Well now that wasnt too hard, she killed her sis to see the man again. Hmm, guess it means I'm a psycho too. "I fear my mask of sanity is about to slip, I feel lethal." Hehe, another Bateman here.


#11

OK....another question for those who answered "correctly"......Where do you hide the bodies?


#12

i too was thinking it was the husband of the sister.

OH POPPY COCK


#13

"Don't just stare at it. Eat it." -Bateman.


#14

it took me a bit, but i figured it out, so does that mean i'm only part psycho cause i didn't know immediately :slight_smile: ?


#15

Hmm... I guessed that she was a conjoined twin. I guess I'm not at 'Feed me a stray cat' quite yet.


#16

It's an urban legend.
