Are you a psychopath? - Part 2 (Answer)  

There's a little kid.

And he got presents from Santa Claus.

He got a soccer ball and he got a bicycle.

But the kid was not happy.


Still want to give it a try? Click below when you're ready!

[ANSWER]To answer this riddle, it's supposed that a normal person would either say "the kid didn't like the presents" or "the kid wanted something else". They could even make up stories about the reason the kid doesn't like the presents (such as myself, I made up a whole scenario where the Santa Claus in the picture is actually the father who abandoned him a long time ago XD), however... What would a psychopath answer?

The kid didn't have any legs.

Yes, that's what they say a psychopath would answer to this question. When I thought about it, given the kind of presents he received, it seemed like the most logical thing. But believe me: never in a hundred years I would have thought about the little kid in the picture above not having any legs. What about you?

If you would like more riddles like this, let me know in the comments! Also, thanks a lot to the people who answered the riddle in my last post, now that you know the answer, what do you think?

The same happened to me and my sister! We really didn't expect that kind of answer.

I'm glad you liked it :) I will post another one soon!

I was close. I assumed he was in a wheel chair! Mostly because his eyes don't seem sad, but ANGRY. And Santa's looked surprised, not sad.

I liked the riddle but I didn't understand why it's psychopath. I mean it seems logical to me. Also, I was kinda sure that I will know the (psychopath) answer because I saw enough that made me want to kill some people.

My answer was he's just a spoiled brat --- normal reason
I thought the psychopath would have been he wanted toy guns and stuff like that. But not having legs so he can't play with them, what's so hateful about that?! I'm kinda confused here.

Yeah, do post riddles like these. They are fun.

This really is not scientifically proven, so I can't tell for sure why that kind of answer would be defined as psychopath, but I guess since by definition psychopaths are those who lack empathy, that might make them go for a most logical thinking when reasoning this kind of questions.

For example, it's more common for normal people to be driven by emotions. When presented with a riddle which shows you a situation where you have to guess why someone is feeling a certain way, we could be tempted to make up scenarios where we would be feeling that way, too, instead of thinking about it logically.

Personally, this really surprised me because the thought of a child being upset about receiving a gift he can't play with due to a disability never crossed my mind. I believe it's cruel from the person giving the presents, and I truly can't imagine why would anyone do such a thing to a little boy. The feelings of this nonexistent caracter concern me and, though I'm just completely guessing here, I think a psychopath wouldn't care about any of this so a logical answer is easier to come up with.

However, giving a right answer doesn't make you a psychopath. As I have said a couple of times, this is, after all, just a riddle :) I will post more soon!

So if a person answered the kid doesn't have legs why would i make them a psychopath? (just curious)
Paola: LxH 2tsukisagi on August 4th, 2017 10:38 am (UTC)
As I said above, this is not scientifically proven so you couldn't really call them a psychopath. Giving this kind of answer is just not very common and people has related it to a special way of seeing things.

I would have though he didn't have legs...because what kid would get upset at getting a soccer/bike.

It's a very logical answer! When I first read the riddle, I didn't even think about the kind of presents he was receiving, I just went with an emotional answer and I guess that's why I never imagined the kid didn't have legs.
bravehearted on August 15th, 2017 10:38 pm (UTC)
Both of those presents involve the use of legs that's what i would have thought..but then again another person could say oh he's not into soccer or riding a bike..-shrugs
