The "Voight-Kampff" test is designed to distinguish androids from humans. Would you like to give it a try?

All the questions are reported from the famous book "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" and the movie "Blade Runner".

Please don't take this test too seriously. I am just providing an example of how difficult (and maybe impossible) it is to define a human.

  • 1
    It’s your birthday. Someone gives you a calfskin wallet. How do you react?
  • 2
    You’ve got a little boy. He shows you his butterfly collection plus the killing jar. What do you do?
  • 3
    You’re watching television. Suddenly you realize there’s a wasp crawling on your arm.
  • 4
    You're reading a magazine. You come across a full-page nude photo of a girl/guy. You show it to your husband/wife. He/She likes it so much, he/she hangs it on your bedroom wall. The girl/guy is lying on a bearskin rug.

    You’re in a desert walking along in the sand when all of the sudden you look down, and you see a tortoise, it’s crawling toward you. You reach down, you flip the tortoise over on it's back. The tortoise lays on it's back, it's belly baking in the hot sun, beating it's legs trying to turn it'self over, but it can’t, not without your help. But you’re not helping. Why is that?
  • 6
    Describe in single words, only the good things that come into your mind about your mother.
  • 7
    You become pregnant by a man who runs off with your best friend, and you decide to get an abortion.
  • 8
    One more question: You're watching a stage play - a banquet is in progress. The guests are enjoying an appetizer of raw oysters. The entree consists of boiled dog stuffed with rice. The raw oysters are less acceptable to you than a dish of boiled dog.
  • 9
    The test is over. How many answers you think were given by machines?

    Thank you for participating! How did you like the test?
    (this extra question is not affecting the results)

Cute, but the questions naturally reflect a western society with different moral and legal values resulting from a history we haven't experienced.

They would not engender the same emotional and physiological responses.

Still neat though, I guess.

Is this to test if I'm a machine or a lesbian?

Not exactly the most accurate, you need to measure their pupil and blush response as well. Not to mention that the story is set in the future when nearly all animals are dead. This greatly affects the magnitude of the questions. In nowadays context it requires much more empathy.

Regarding question 9's meaning.Answers to any question? All questions or one question? There are thirty answers in all including those of question 10. Or do you mean how many of my answers coincided with machine answers?
