    I don't want this, I just want him to face justice and be locked away.

    Divert it to kill the one person.

    Or just do nothing at all - it's not your problem.

    I would pull the trolley so it avoids hitting the five people and then immediately run towards the single person to try and save him. There is just not enough time to untie five people from a incoming train but there might be for a single person. It's the only thing I believe I can do. Even if you can't save the single person, you can definately try. And that's all that matters. :cool:

    The situation would put you at a distance that running is not an option. For me personally I would pull the lever regardless of if I had time to think about it or not. One death can affect many, 5 deaths would effect more, but regardless you do not know. Yes pulling the lever is you activally deciding to kill that one person, you would be making that choice, but doing nothing and allowing more people to die is just as bad.

    Regardless you are damned if you do, damned if you don't, and to sacrifice one for many is always the route to go.

    It's a dumb problem because either way blood is on your hands. Either you make the choice or the choice is made for you. If you can run the problem is at least posed in a fashion that forces 'you' to make a choice. Since you can't run you have no choice and choosing the 1 person is going to be the obvious victor. It should require next to no thought at all when given as an ultimatum such as this.

    A more involved problem would be a lot more interesting or maybe adding the factor that you know someone within one of the groups which would absolutely make someone hesitate. I get the point of dilemma problems, but I personally dislike them as they are often posed in a very unrealistic way to merely prove a point.

    Well, remember that the majority of people with any form of mental illness go on to lead perfectly acceptable lives without those around them knowing much about it.

    It's only very extreme cases where it leads to news stories.

    Yes and in a psychopath test used by psychiatrists it shows that 1% of the population is psychopathic. But 3% of business owners are. abandonist owns his own business, so it doesn't surprise me that the odds are he'd score higher (plus the fact that he does his own thing more than anyone else I know).
    And for reference, they estimate that prison populations show about 15-20 percent psychopathy.

    The questionnaire is about tendencies, not diagnosis, but yes, I am.

    I got 2 for primary and 3.2 for secondary. So apparently I show empathy, but lean towards some antisocial tendencies like rule breaking and a lack of effort towards socially rewarded behavior. :shrug:

    At least that's what it says. :lol:

    I got a 1.4 and a 1.5. Doesn't surprise me. I know I'm that way. And sometimes it drives me nucking futs that I'm such a rule follower.
