The Bathtub Test

29 May

During a visit to a psychiatric hospital,  a visitor asked the Director,  “How do you determine whether or not a person should be institutionalized?” “Well” said the Director,  “we fill up a bathtub,  then we offer them a teaspoon,  a teacup and a bucket and ask the person to empty the bathtub.  “Oh,  I understand” said the visitor,  “a normal person would use the bucket because it’s bigger than the teaspoon or teacup”.  “No”  said the director,  “a normal person would just pull the plug.  Would you like a bed near the window?”
