Are you a psychopath? - Part 3 (Answer)  

One night, a man goes out because he is thirsty and has to drink some water.

After he finishes drinking water, he looks to the right and he sees a robber.

This man runs away and goes and hides in the closet.

Now, if you were the robber that saw this, and you had a knife in your hand...

What would you do?

[ANSWER]To answer this riddle, it's supposed that a normal person would either say that they would open the closet and kill the person inside or they would just run away. However... what would a psychopath answer?

That they would wait quietly until that person comes out and then kill them.

For more details, this is an actual answer defined as psychopath: "I'd pretend like I'm walking away. I'd open the front door, close the front door. Let him come out and stab him when he comes out. Easy, no witnesses."

This might only be my two cents, but when I first read the right answer, I wondered why anyone would think about killing the person if you're supposed to be just a robber. It was until I thought more about the answer above that I realized the riddle clearly states the man sees the robber. If you think about it and come to the conclusion that he probably also saw your face, then it'b be logical to recognize the importance of not having any witnesses if you're stealing something of great value. Also, if you go into the closet, the man may have found something to defend himself already, or he could have a phone inside, and even if he didn't have anything with him, to confront him directly would make a fuss anyways. So yes, waiting for him to come out is the most logical thing to do.

In case you're curious, my answer was that I'd block the door of the closet where the man is hiding so he can't come out, then steal everything :P Now that you know the right answer, what are your thoughts?

More riddles coming soon!

Well, this one makes more sense than the first one.
Scaring someone like that does sound psychopath. I mean, the mental state where he feels safe after the robber leaves then being attached by surprised is sure to give one a heart attack. My reaction is normal, but I did learn that if I'm stealing someone, I should not leave any witness behind and kill whoever saw me! Lol! Just kidding - it was a good point though.

I'm glad this made more sense to you! Yeah it'd be such a scare, as a robber you would need to think in a very cold way to come up with this idea.

Haha well, we learn something new everyday! :P

Lol, I found your idea of blocking the door of the closet to steal every thing a really funny but smart way actually!

I thought that, as a robber, I would just look for a way to steal as much as possible :P
