Trust Tests

Both Eugene Volokh and Professor Bainbridge think this Political Quiz is stupid.
Me, too, by the way. You can read their reasons and take the test if you have the inclination. I stopped after the second question, scanned the rest and moved on, so there is no score for me.

About the same time I was reading these little factoids I received an email from my buddy Marty in Florida with a much more interesting quiz. Here it is for your amusement. I will put the answer in the comments.

Read this question, come up with an answer and then go to the first comment for the result. This is not a trick question. It is as it reads. No one I know has got it 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, then check the comments thread.]

While we're on the subject, here are a couple of links to profile quizes I like better.

Answer to Kent Peterman's quiz:

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.
