The Bathtub Test
During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director, 'How do you determine whether or not a patient should be institutionalised.'
'Well,' said the Director, 'we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or to empty the bathtub.'
'Oh, I understand,' said the visitor. 'A normal person would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup.'
'No.' said the Director, 'a normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?'
