This is interesting. Who's got the guts to take it and tell the two resulting numbers?

Me: 2.3 and 1.7

I recommend 'The Psychopath Test' by Ron Jonson (or was it Jon Ronson?) if you're interested in this topic at all  ;D
I never finish anyth

Well 5 is a full on nut-job psycho, so I'm guessing lower is better :-)

2.1 (fine)and 2.9  :huh: you guys are right!

That being said, I think there some flaws. The first question is a two part statement, something to the effect of "success is based on survival of the fittest; I don't care about the losers". What is someone to do if they agree with part 1 but not part 2? A lot of the questions seem to equate perception of reality with belief in how people should be treated.

Or the emotional manipulation question. Like, I enjoy making people feel comfortable, having a professional appearance and demeanor and the way art can get us to feel a certain way. I don't enjoy manipulation for profit and deception. Apparently art and good hosting are psycho/sociopathic. (On second thought they might have a point....) :undecided:

The other issue is using a 5 pt. Likert scale on this. I'm not sure a scale where 1 deviation takes you from below average to above average is the best to use. I think 7 or 9 pt. might have been better.

1.4 and 1.8

Reading through this test though brought back some bad memories about a guy who I used to consider my best friend. The signs were always there, but I never realized it until it was too late that he was an absolute psychopath. It makes me wonder how he would rank on this test.

A LOT of the questions that were brought up remind me of this person and it makes me uncomfortable just thinking about it.

That's interesting. It made me think of an ex-boss in much the same way.

1 and 2.

Does the fact that I managed to get results without any decimels make me a psychopath?

EDIT: Just took it again but modified how I answered 3-4 questions. New scores are 1.4 and 2.5.  :undecided:

I'm not a fancy-pants, hot-shot psychologist, but, yes.  Yes, it does.  Big time.

Short question list+ 5pt. Likert = Easily shifted results. I think the jump from 2 to 2.5 just shifted you significantly in what percentile you are in.
