Congratulations, you've got some killer instincts! You obviously have what it takes to catch a killer. Relentless, driven and motivated; nothing will stop you once you have a goal in mind. You're savvy, smart, and keen on picking up clues or pieces that others miss. Unlike some in this field, you're not just motivated by physical evidence, but psychological profiles.
A Mind For Madness
You have a mind for madness! There's no doubt that you would catch a killer and even help to profile them to catch future killers. You know how to get inside the mind of a killer and see the world from their eyes. You use this information to profile, find locations, and even pick up on evidence. If you can't do it, no one can!
In Hot Pursuit
While you would be in hot pursuit of a killer and right on their heels, you might not catch them. Sure, you're clever and motivated, but so is the killer at large. You're not quite ready to stay one step ahead of a criminal mastermind.
A Clean Getaway
Uh-oh, unfortunately you don't have what it takes to catch a killer just yet! Hey, it's not easy to catch these criminals. Many of them are quite clever and know what not to do in order to avoid getting caught. You just don't think like a killer, nor can you read another person's true intentions. Fear not with a little time and training, you could hone in on those killer instincts
