Riddle Me This

(Answer the riddle with the first thing that comes to mind, or the second. But don't dwell on it for more than a few minutes, and don't read anyone else's answer before posting your answer even if you just post that you don't know. Really. This will be interesting tomorrow when I tell you what it says about you. This is fun, just in case you were in doubt :)

There is a grown woman. She goes to her own mother's funeral. There she meets a stranger, the man of her dreams! He's wonderful! Her soul-mate. He feels the same way about her. They get interupted. He vanishes into the chaotic crowd. She didn't get his name. He didn't sign the guest-book. She's distraught. Two days later, she kills her sister.

Riddle: Why did she kill her sister?


Um, she's a twin, and her sister is dating him?

You scare me with these questions!

Because her sister (1) felt the same way about the man, (2) did get his name, and (3) mentioned it to her.

I leave it as a further thought experiment whether the woman drove 900 miles while wearing diapers.

It was a car accident.

If he came to one funeral, her mystery man will show up for her sister's funeral.

Jennifer | 02/28/2007 - 09:35 PM

AHA! I bet Jennifer is right!

And since SOMEBODY won't come back and answer us, we'll have to keep guessing.

So I think I know. If she kills her sister there will be another funeral. If the man was a family friend he would surely come back!

This is a psychological profiling question used to detect sociopathic traits. An interesting study confirmed that all Serial Killers, Psychopaths and Sociopaths answered the question in the same manner. It is interesting to note the simplicity and logic presented in the answer. The answer appears quite obvious to these individuals.

Answer: She wanted to see the man again.

I know this is an older thread, but I've been kinda freakin' out lately. My mom asked me this question years ago and without hesitation I answered "she wanted to create another fruneral" (in hopes of seeing the mystery guy again). For me it was the only logical reason for the murder and came to me instantly. I shocked the hell out of my mom.
I've asked many friends and no one answers the same as I did. They always assume its a jealousy thing.
I never thought too much of it until I saw it used in a movie and a diagnosis was given... Psychopath.
