The IDRlabs Movie Psychopath Test has been developed by professionals experienced with personality and psychological assessment. The present test uses genuine psychometric items to assign users their closest character match, based on aspects of their personality.

Free online quizzes such as this are merely first glances at some aspect of your personality or psychological state. Your results will provide a clue as to your personality match with one of six movie psychopaths (Patrick Bateman, Anton Chigurh, Daniel Plainview, Miranda Priestly, Louis Bloom, and Jack). However, no assessment ever created can match your personality with total accuracy or can replace educating yourself about the relevant personality theories.

The present year (2020) marks the 20th anniversary since one of film history's most iconic psychopaths appeared on the big screen: Patrick Bateman. The film adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis' novel American Psycho features Christian Bale playing the slick and luxury-conscious stockbroker who commits one atrocious murder after another. Despite Bateman's cavalcade of murders, however, he is never held accountable for his actions. His social circle does not care about that since they are too focused on the internal race for status among themselves. Upon release, there were divided opinions as to whether the film was intended as horror or satire. Audiences typically reacted with either indignation or excitement when they saw it.

Film expert Per Juul Carlsen recalls the reaction to the film: “American Psycho came out in response to the yuppie environment that prevailed in the financial world at the time. Patrick Bateman was the perfect image of the money man bent on conspicuous consumption, who held back nothing in the pursuit of his wants.”
