With the problem of that being if one A. Does not know which one represents one may just pick the sword or if B. One does not think the amulet as any power to help one might pick the sword, but could in truth be a good person and not corrupted by the power since neither object nor is in itself evil or necessarily a path to evil.

It's akin to Solomon choosing "wisdom" as his gift of God, not a flashy gift, but a profound one. He could have asked for power, but knew that it would not be being true to his nature.
