The Bathtub Test

The Bathtub Test

During a visit to the mental asylum, I asked the director, “How do you
determine whether or not a patient should be institutionalized?”

“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 her to empty the
bathtub.”

“Oh, I understand,” I said. “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?”
