Wrong, in so many ways.....

An email from a friend, with some commentary below....

Read this question, come up with an answer, and then scroll down to the bottom for the result. This is not a trick question. It is as it reads.

No one I know has been right.

A woman, while at the funeral of her own mother, met a guy whom she did not know. She thought this guy was amazing. She believed him to be her dream guy so much, 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 for killing her sister?

[Give this some thought before you answer, see answer below]

(Play the Jeopardy music here)


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.

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 my email list...

Interesting that these things become internet cascades. As Snopes notes, this one is not even very plausible.

Yet, three people have sent it to me.

Delete it, please, don't forward it.

Learning to think like a psychopath helped me survive the last company I worked for. The entire management team was composed of pyschopaths.
