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. Am I understanding this correctly?

So, while the Sword of Might would indicate one is closer to violence it does not mean they are in essence evil or going down a path of evil. They just might think violence is the best way to resolve the current situation. (Which considering what Captain Britain often has to deal with seems to be the case most of the time.)
