    Pros: 

    Nothing

    Cons: 

    This is really irresponsible.

    Psychopathy is a major psychiatric diagnosis that can't just be reduced to "evil". Putting these kind of jokey tests up is making light of the condition and can cause further harm. Here's some writing from someone with diagnosed and treated psychopathy about it: https://medium.com/@machinesblee... And an interview with another person diagnosed with psychopathy: https://medium.com/the-cut/my-li...

    Creatrix Tiara has never used this product.

I'll put put it this way: I hope not a single person takes it seriously. The questions are laughably simplistic and almost invites responses that are riddled in bias. In short, this borderline irresponsible to share should a single person actually take it seriously and should probably come with a qualifier that it's more of a tool for kids to joke around with and learn the basic behaviors of a psychopath than to actually take seriously as a test.

@tarekp Fair point. This should not be used as a substitute for clinical tests which are more qualitative, have to be given by a trained psychologist, and are not available online. By being designed to be both easy to use and quick to take, a certain rigour had to be sacrificed. The questions are of course simplistic, however it's difficult to base closed questions on subtler predictors, without the chance of false positives.

I hope this test provides an easy and fun way for people to diagnose themselves on the empath-psychopath spectrum, and more importantly, spot the warning signs in others. This is not a replacement for the Hare Psychopathy Checklist, which should only be given by a licensed practitioner.

How accurate are these results? Should I worry if I scored high? Lol

@basicbonsai Millimetre precision accurate :-) No in seriousness, you should only worry if you score 90% and above. Although psychopaths don't worry about being bad people - they consider their traits as skills that get them ahead in life.

So what's the deal with calling out Sayalay Anuttara? I have no idea whom she is but it doesn't seem that she's an obvious parallel to Ted Bundy.

@kaizendad Inspiration for the test, and just as evil in my opinion. I wanted to stress that not all psychopaths are serial killers.
