11 for me ...
What's the point in taking the quiz again, as the first answer that comes to mind is going to be your closest inclination. By taking it again, and changing your answers, that's like whoring for CoP points, innit? And I don't mean that any skaters are psychopaths, but I'm not so sure about some of the judges and ISU officials.
In any case, the proviso at end of the quiz assures us that there's nothing to worry about unless you score high in all psychopathic traits. And that some traits associated with psychopaths, are excellent characteristics for various and sundry occupations, particularly on Wall Street, unsurprisingly. Obviously, tho' nothing in life is as simple and easily measurable as taking a pop quiz.
All of this brings to mind, The Talented Mr. Ripley, as well as the scurrilous and scary character Jack Nicholson went up against in Chinatown:
Ya know, Mr. Gittes, most people never have to face the fact that at the right time, and the right place, they’re capable of ANYTHING!
-- John Huston as Noah Cross
oh dear, 23.... kind of disturbed by that.
^^ Keep reading after the quiz, don't be too disturbed.
I got 10.
Because leesaleesa said she clicked the wrong thing, not that she thought about it and changed her mind. She made a mistake.
Took it again and saw where 12 is low. It's pretty useless, since the MMPI (if that's still in use) uses something like 400 questions, but I'm happy to report that I am not currently suffering from sociopathy according to the internet.
I'm no mental health professional but I suspect this quiz diagnoses narcissism more than psychopathology.
I was not focusing on your suggestion to leesaleesa; other posters mentioned the urge to take the quiz again.
Okay...I went back and read the thread again. no one said that.
6. Is there a mass market self-help book out there for people like me (Like You Just Don't Care: Stop That Emotional Empathic Whining and Get What You Want Out Of Life!)?
Frankly, I expected to get a higher score.
6. I’m so bloody normal....
No big deal, milanessa, but mayhap I could persuade you that rfisher and PeterG in addition to yourself, at least alluded to taking the quiz again/ changing their responses.
14 out of 33.
You're right, it's no big deal but you are delusional. I never indicated any such thing, rfisher didn't and you misread PeterG's post.
8 so I guess I'm not evil bahaha
A disappointing 14. My co-workers might disagree.
The questions about animal cruelty are right out of Psychopathy 101 though. I'd have to go back and re-read the questions but I'd say at least half didn't surprise me while the other half did make me go
7 out of 33. I'm disappointed.
Okay milanessa, I can't persuade you re the finer implications of those posts, so I'm not that "persuasive." And I knew it anyway, having taken the quiz. You did in fact suggest that another poster "take it again." Albeit, of course, not for the reason that apparently prompted your ire to my original post.
And yes, a bit of a contretemps in an entertaining thread. What was your score again, btw?
I'm an 8. I would probably do poorly in a post-apocolyptic world.
I got a 9. Not so after all.
I got 12
