Hello. This is another type me thread but also a test bed for my prototype questionnaire.
1. During your youth (7'ish to 20), What did you focus on the most? What activities did you like and why? What aspect of life was lax in attention?
I would say that I mainly focuses on what was happening in front of me, whether playing with others to watching tv. I was interested in anything about trucks and cars. When I was younger, I enjoyed playing with legos because I liked building things like car replicas and those of my own design. Video games became a hobby as I got older. I guess the reason I am attracted to them is because they immerse me in a thrilling experience that I probably wouldn't have otherwise. I probably would have to say I payed little attention to foresight. When I was younger, I did things spontaneously for fun which sometime lead to injury, damage to property, and getting into trouble. This also played a part in my anger as I didn't think about "what will happen" and lead me to be aggressively vindictive. I learned to look ahead but still short-sighted in my aims.
2. You're in you senior year of high school (or whatever equivalent) and you get to choose 2 elective courses. Which of following two would you pick? Why?
I would have to say say P.E. first. When I was in high school, it was one of the few classes that I liked. I liked running around and showing off. Dodgeball was a favorite. Also, who does like sitting on their duff 8 hours a day? For my second choice, ...History? I was going to say Art because I enjoyed it in my day, but that was probably because I was interacting with friends than actually the course itself. I liked history because of all the intriguing stories. I would say it's more about the events themselves than understanding the historical concepts. So basically, story time!
3. A couple of friends call and invite you out on an outing. Which activity is most likely to tempt you to join? Why?
As long as we're "doing" something, I'll probably go. It's nice to talk and all, but doing just and only that gets boring sometimes. Parties are fun if there is some group activity. Plus, the the food!!
4. It's time for you to head off to college and start your career path. How do you decide where to go? How do you decide which major/career?
I still don't rightly know and I already went to college. It doesn't really matter where I go for college; they're all the same to me. As for choosing my career, I would choose something that I like, something that calls to me. Even though I finished, I have yet to find a career that interests me. Probably something to do with the aesthetics of cars (car aero designer).
5. A friend is getting married and they put you in charge of the cake. You narrowed it down to two places to make an order. The first is a bakery with whom you got a good relationship with. The other is a well-known cake maker to whom everyone goes to. Which one do you choose and why?
I would go with the one I am cool with. Yeah, everyone goes to that one guy but, who cares? My friend probably wants me to go to it, but who's in charge? Plus, my place is probably cheaper.
6. You get into an argument with a friend/family member/co-worker. They criticize one of your personality traits. What would most likely be the focus of their critique?
It's probably about me not "taking things seriously" I have a tendency to attempting to dissolve serious tones with humor.
7. It's New Years! You and your friends are out and about after a party. Being drunk, one of your friends suggests to do something....'questionable' (Nothing serious. I.e, drugs, escort, etc.). What are your thoughts and how do you respond?
Internally, I probably be "Okay...[thinks about consequences]"but if it is fun, I'd probably go along.
8. A new art gallery opens up and your friend wants to go to the grand opening. Both of you analyze all the paintings and sculptures. What about these works warrants the most attention from you? Why?
I would focus on what they look like, the shapes, colors, etc. Their meaning probably wouldn't have crossed my mind unless it was painfully obvious.
9. You have been saving up and decide to buy a new car. At the dealership, you peruse the lots. What are the criteria and factors that influence your choice? Which one would initially be your main focus?
I would most likely focus on a car that looks the best to me. Of course, I would consider price range and and mileage, but If I don't like it, I would overlook it.
10. Where would you like to see yourself in five years? Why?
I hate this question as I don't know. I don't even think a week in advance. Of course I want to do well, but I don't know what that entails. As longs as I'm healthy and enjoying myself, that's all I want.
