So I took this test and scored:

The Master Assassin
You scored 79% in planning and 72% in doing

Whatever you do, please don't be offended by anything I wrote on this test! You're the master. You plan, consider and evaluate absolutely everything. Not only that but your scientific brain continually evaluates innumerable variables even while on the job. You're know you don't have to be the bravest or the most unfeeling, you simply have a job to do and anyone around you while on that job are simply objects for you to influence as you do or do not see fit. You're the plumber, the doorstep evangelist, the door-to-door salesman, the telephone linesman, the delivery guy, any member of the local ecosystem because you understand that stealth is not in being unseen, but in being unnoticed. You have a thorough understanding of what it takes to kill (and what it doesn't take) and how to best avoid the kill being traced not just to you, but to anyone. You have many different methods, any of which you could employ within seconds of considering another while in the target's vicinity. You are the master assassin, the highest and best result available on this test.

I'm not sure I should be proud or afraid of myself. :/

??? The link works fine on my end...

I was, however, having problems with that site earlier today, when I was at work and using IE. Maybe it's a browser thing. [Confused]

My experience with OKCupid is that the test works fine until you get to the end, at which time it prompts you to log in or register to get your results. After either action, the test is erased and you need to search the site to find it again and retake it.

Free advice: Sign in first and then take the test (cut and paste the test ID numbers from Xanthine's link). It'll save you from wasting your time.

Actually Rhonnie, all I had to do was give them my sex and date of birth at the end. Oh yeah, and a question about a blog. No signing in required. Optional, but not required. After that, it took me straight to my results.

The Hired Gun
You scored 55% in planning and 52% in doing.

You're adequate in all departments and might make a useful hired gun for domestic and/or small business disputes. Chances are good, however, that the police will eventually track you down. You make the occasional mistake and eventually, it'll be one mistake too many. You're competent in all departments but expert in none. If you could be anything else, you'd be the apprentice...but no master assassins take apprentices.


Well, I never thought of myself as a master assassin anyway [Wink]

The Mercenary
You scored 72% in planning and 66% in doing
You're better than a cheap hired gun and you'll probably look forwards to a long and successful career but you really do need to work on the dirty part of assassination - the approach and kill. You will be noticed as being "not normal" by members of the public but you're at least good enough to not be noticed as "mortal danger". A determined police investigation might track you down, but we all know that it'd cost the police good money they could be using to improve their statistics elsewhere... Your strength lies in planning for every eventuality and having a seamless plan for anything that may happen while on the job but you did drop a few points when it came to being undetected for what you are. You're probably in it for the money.

Wow, I'm better than I thought. [Razz]

Well, I stick to Google's creed of Do No Evil, so no harm in not scoring high on that test. [Smile]

What's up the the "F**k buddy" ads on okcupid?. I've been a member there for quite some time and this is something they only recently started doing...

I sitck to that creed too, for all the good it ended up doing me...

I retook it, changed an answer or two, and scored even higher as a Master Assasin. Maybe I was one in a past life or something. :/

Master Assassin ... hmm. I may have found a new career ;-)

So, what was the answer to "least detectable" - I figured poison, but I'm not sure. Anyone know?

I'm not sure either. I went with strangulation. Poison can get picked up in posthomunous blood work and possibly get traced back toa purchaser or supplier or something. Strangling someone with someone in their own home won't leave any signatures beyond fingerprints behind, and if you're a smart assassin you'd be wearing gloves anyways.

Except if you use a ligature. It's also very difficult to strangle somebody to death. It takes a lot of strength and it takes a long time. (or so I hear). [evil]

You know I got a 76 planning and a 71 on doing. I can't remember the rest.

But I chose the knife. Guns are traceable, and strangulation as GMx said is time consuming. Poison is tested for. But a knife, unless you are particularly close to one. Is a great temporary weapon. Buy one at K-Mart, kill, clean, and dispose.

Yard sales have plenty of that stuff for pennies.

But I do not advocate the assasination of anyone, unless it is real good money. [evil]

Um, given that chloroform is a single carbon with three flourines around it, it might be easier to just buy it. The synthesis probably isn't difficult (as in, no more than one step), but you'd need a lab and a fume hood and a lot of glassware and probably some really good fire insurance as well.

The Master Assassin
You scored 75% in planning and 80% in doing
How you compared to other people your age and gender:
You scored higher than 83% on Knowledge
You scored higher than 91% on Stealth

I went for poison as least traceable, but only because they stated manually as a strangulation. Sure, a smart assassin (like I am! [Wink] ) know how to leave no trace, but as the test stated "typically," I went for what would be harder even for a dumb beginner. Though if I really had to do it, I'd rather go for injecting air and causing an emboly. A lot, lot harder to identify as murder. And downright impossible if the victim already uses syringes (legal or illegal drugs).

(Ok, I guess I read too many police/mystery novels.)

Hmmm... I think you're right Xanthine, it would just be easier to have my dad bring some home... he works at the hospital, I think they use Chloroform as a solvent or something.

But it would be funner to make my own, methinks. In the danger lies the challenge!!!

Of course, that just says that I think like the author of the test. I have no basis to think that the author of the test knows more than an average mystery novelist. (I sure don't).

Nope, just use vascular restraint. I only requires pressure in certain places and a normal person's strength (given that you aren't taking down a musclehead). Someone will pass out very quickly. It's not much of a wait after that.

Edit: The Silent Hitman
You scored 59% in planning and 80% in doing
You're better than a cheap hired gun and you'll probably look forwards to a long and successful career but you really do need to work on the science of assassination - the planning, the ground work, the background, the hundreds of ways to kill someone and the very few that work for an assassin. Your strength lies in getting in and getting out without anyone suspecting that you are either about to kill someone or just have. We suspect you're in the game for the sport rather than the money and this may lead you to do stupid things like setting a "challenge" for yourself.
