PSYCHOlogy At Its Finest

By Bryan Garcia

A great multitude of individuals that see a slasher film often believe that they are never capable of murdering another human being. As a matter of fact, many viewers believe that they may never even THINK of becoming that one wack job that kills dozens of people. If you strongly believe that you have the mind of a standard human being, then you may want to answer this famous riddle:

 

A woman,

while at the funeral of her own mother,

met a man who she did not know.

She thought he was ‘amazing’.

She believed him to be her dream partner 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.

Why did the woman kill her own sister?

 

At first glance, you can safely assume that the woman is a madwoman (P.S She is). But as you reflect more about the conundrum, you start to realize that the woman is not as a lunatic as she first seemed (P.P.S She still is). While this riddle was made to make you think, it does not prove whether an individual is a maniac or not. Like many riddles, this one was made for just kicks and giggles.

So what’s the answer?

The reason why the woman killed her sister was because she figured that if the man would attend the mother’s funeral, then he would attend at her sister’s funeral as well.
