I'm not surprised. I don't like hurting people, or anything for that matter.

45%.

But the intent behind the questions was transparent and made it easy to try to put the best face on things. Cleverer psychological tests are designed to see through your disingenuousness.

Yeah, I wouldn't put much store by an internet gimmick designed to advertise a TV theme night about what fun it is to be a psychopath.

30 something - I wasn't concentrating; I was trying to defrost the freezer without letting my collection of heads thaw out.

I used to worry about myself - I don't seem to have a grief mode (at least not in the way it seems to occur with other people), or a belonging mode (ditto probably), I blink much less than human beings are apparently supposed to, (I've also got very blue eyes - the combination has unnerved several people I've known over the years), and used to be very attracted to risk (although I'm kind of growing out of that one).

Also, when it comes to physical confrontation I don't, and never have had, a 'play' mode - there are only two settings: not fighting at all, or berserker. Used to get me in loads of trouble when I was younger - there was no such thing as a 'play' fight in my dictionary.

Anyway, I think I'm okay, because I fail in some areas, at least according to Jon Ronson's The Psychopath Test - and Kevin Dutton's The Wisdom of Psychopaths, which I'm reading just now, suggests it may not be an entirely bad thing to be a bit psycho after all.
