Funeral.....

Situation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.

I heard this teaser this weekend from a medical student. Apparently, they ask this question to people to know if they are psychopaths. If you can answer it right away, you may have bizarre tendencies. You have all the elements to answer it, you don't have to elaborate complex theories. Ok, here it comes:

A young girl is at her mother's funeral. She meets a young man she had never seen before, but who's there as a part of family. She instantly falls in love with him. A few days after, she kills her sister. Why?





What Next?

I think the young girl is a psycopath... and making it a soap opera where her sister was having an affair with that man sounds like a good idea. nice teaser.

u got most of it, but the guy isnt there as family. she falls in love with him, but she never gets his name or number. She killed her sister so she could see him again...the answer is, he is a funeral director, so if she killed her sister she would be able to see him again, as he would be at the funeral. Makes more sense.

I think bmotts was totally correct in his question. If the man was the funeral director he could have been easily tracked down and wouldn't necessarily be directing the sister's funeral. After wading through tonnes of these situation teasers it's a joy to come across a good one like this as opposed to some of the rubbish they allow.

Thank guys for your comments... Mjs Kitten, yes your makes sense too, but i don't think mine is so bad... cause as a part of unknown family, the sister assumed she would see him again.. she was not even sure, she just took a chance, and killer her sister! how rude!

Okay so whats the accuracy on the psychopath part? lol that was a good teaser i thought it might be the womans father so killed her sis so no one knew who he was. But i think that has even more bizarre intendencies!!!

I heard this one not long ago! If you answered it by saying that the woman killed her sister to see the man again at her funeral, you are said to have psychopathic qualities.
But if you answered it by saying that the woman killed her sister because the man she fell in-love with was her sister’s new boyfriend, you are said to be normal.

Maybe I AM a psychopath.. I thought perhaps she found out the man had turned out to be a man who had an affair with her mother, and really fathered her. If I fell in love with a man who turned out to be my biological father, I'd kill myself, and in a way, that makes my killing my sister.. perhaps? Very "Jerry Springer"-like...

Fine,so she did it to see the young man, or the funeral director, she still murdered just to see a man again--whacko!!! I don't really see a big difference, here.

ACTUALLY.....AS A FUNERAL DIRECTOR OR A PART OF THE FAMILY....HER MAKING CONTACT WITH THE MAN WOULD HAVE BEEN SIMPLE EITHER WAY...WHY WOULDN'T SHE JUST ASK AROUND HER FAMILY WHO THE MAN WAS WITH THE INTENTION OF GETTING TO KNOW HER FAMILY BETTER??? SAME WITH THE FUNERAL DIRECTOR...SHE WOULD HAVE SIMPLY STOPPED INTO THE PARLOR AND SAID SHE WANTED TO THANK THE MAN WHO PUT HER MOTHER'S FUNERAL TOGETHER SO WELL.....

I would have thought that the man was her father and she got the big P and had to kill her "sister"

hey jucy-lu, you got it the other way around.If you said she killed her sister because her sister was in love with the man you have psychopathic qualities.

I first saw this question in an email, and I love it just as much seeing it here. The pure simplicity of the answer is the beauty of the teaser. It is a very obvious answer, but luckily, one most people don't think of.

I tried to post this one up, but it had already been posted... oh well.

When my friend told me this one, I got it right. I guess that makes me a psychopath?

I thought her sister was her identical twin and she didn't want the man to fall in love with her sister.
