Psychopathy

The ink blotter on the label of Psychopathy reminded me of another psychological test a friend sent me a few years ago. How about before we tuck into this twelve ounce can of psychopathy we have you lie down on the couch for some psychotherapy?

Read the following questions, imagining the scenes in your mind, and write down the FIRST thing that you visualize. Do not think about the questions excessively.

1. You are walking in the woods. You are not alone. Who are you walking with?
2. You are walking in the woods. You see an animal. What kind of animal is it?
3. What happens between you and the animal?
4. Walking deeper in the woods, you enter a clearing and before you is your dream house. Describe its size.
5. Does a fence surround your dream house?
6. You enter the house. You walk to the dining area and see the dining room table. Describe what you see on AND around the table.
7. You exit the house through the back door. Lying in the grass is cup. What is the cup made of?
8. What do you do with the cup?
9. You walk to the edge of the property, where you find yourself standing at the edge of a body of water. What type of body of water is it?
10. How will you cross the water?

This has been a relational psychology test. The answers given to the questions have been shown to have relevance to values and ideals that we hold in our personal lives.

The analysis follows:

1. The person you are walking with is the most important person in your life.
2. The size of the animal is representative of your perception of the size of your problems.
3. The severity of the interaction you have with the animal is representative of how you deal with your problems. (Passive/aggressive).
4. The size of your dream house is representative of the size of your ambition to resolve your problems.
5. No fence is indicative of an open personality. People are welcome at all times. The presence of a fence indicates a close personality. You’d prefer people not to drop by unannounced.
6. If your answer did not include food, people, or flowers, then you are generally unhappy.
7. The durability of the material the cup is made of is representative of the perceived durability of your relationship with the person named in number 1. For example, Styrofoam, plastic, and paper are all disposable, metal and hard plastic are durable.
8. Your disposition of the cup is representative of your attitude toward the person in number 1.
9. The size of the body of water is representative of the size of your sexual desire.
10. How wet you get in crossing the water is indicative of the relative importance of your sex life.

Now that you’ve denied the results – let’s pop open a beer. I’ll pop open this can of psychopathy.

To me, there’s just not enough underlying sweetness in Psychopathy but the bitterness and hop characteristic is certainly pleasant. It’s herbal, grassy and lemony. The minute sweetness is honey-like. It’s certainly crisp medium-bodied and very drinkable. Carbonation in Psychopathy is low and a double check of the label shows the ABV a,t 6.9%. I’ll put psychopathy at 88 points.
