Did you install RVM and downloaded another version of ruby through that? Try closing your terminal and opening it again, and type rvm use 2.3.1 to see if that changed anything. Also, try the good old "turn the computer off and on again" and let me now if that helped ;). Mac is always problematic because of this pre-installed ruby...
