The Bathtub Test

The Bathtub Test
During a visit to a mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director what the criteria is that defines if a patient should be admitted.

“Well,” said the Director, “we fill up a bathtub. Then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup, and a bucket to the patient and ask the patient to empty the bathtub.”

Okay, here’s your test: Would you use the spoon, the teacup or the bucket?

“Oh, I understand,” said the visitor. “A normal person would choose the bucket, as it is larger than the spoon.”

What was the director’s response?
