"If the other boy were to die, the same thing would be repeated"

   Having encountered a man she secretly loves at the funeral of her nephew, Freud's patient dreams wishfully of another relative's death renewing the relationship.  This interpretation may have originated the 'Psychopath Test', performed by excitable children and chain-email botherers everywhere:

'This is a genuine psychological test.  It is a story about a girl. While at the funeral of her own mother, she 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 there but never asked for his number and could not find him. A few days later the girl killed her own sister.

Question:  What is her motive in killing her sister?

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 this test and answered it correctly. If you didn't answer correctly - good for you. If your friends hit the jackpot, may I suggest that you keep your distance'
