I have severe depression.


**Your significant other just ended your 2 year relationship quite suddenly and with no apparent explanation. Up until this point you had both been talking about marriage and last week you even went to look at rings together. Now he/she won't even return your phone calls or texts. After talking with his/her family you find out that he/she has just been diagnosed with terminal stage 4 cancer.**

*Describe how this scenario would make you feel as well as what sort of influences and motivations lie behind those feelings. Why do you feel the way you do?*

2 years? Doesn't look so much. If we really love each other, she wouldn't end the relationship just because she's going to die. Anyway, I would be sad and angry to the life. I would ask her why she broke up. I would try to be with her all the way. I have a relationship for 5 years. We, really, love each other. If this happenned to me, I would commit suicide.

*In this scenario what would you honestly say the primary focus of your feelings would be?*



**You are in college and this semester both you and your roommate end up in the same class together. You and your roommate get along fairly well and the living situation works but you aren't particularly close. You both typically do your own thing and are rather indifferent to each other. As the semester progresses you excel and become one of the top students in the class whereas your roommate is struggling significantly to grasp the material. The professor assigns a fairly challenging take home test that is a significant portion of your grade. He/she makes it clear that while it is open book, students are to work alone. Later your roommate comes to you begging for help after struggling with the test most of the weekend. You have already completed the assignment and he/she isn't asking to copy your answers, just to help tutor and mentor them as they struggle to complete the test, so there is no way your professor would ever know. However, this is the first time your room-mate has asked you for help this semester. He/she makes it clear that how they do on this test could mean the difference between passing and failing this class.**

*How do you respond to your roommate’s request and why?*

I would make it clear that passing this class won't be something good for him, because he wouldn't have learned it correclty, but I would help him, it's his decision after all.

*What sort of things in this scenario stand out to you as far as having a strong influence on your decision making and why?*

That if it is something that I should do.

*Describe the flow of your decision making process.*

It doesn't matter for me if I help him or not. I have free time, I won't get any harm, so why not help him?


**Your boss calls you into his/her office in order to assign you to a new project. He/she gives you a choice between two.**

**Project 1 is a rather broad, expansive project covering multiple areas of company operations. It has the potential to have a very significant impact on company operations but it would require a collective effort and an extensive amount of group work where you would be logically thinking through the project together with the group of individuals your boss has also assigned to it.**

**Project 2 has a much more specific and narrow focus and would require a significant amount of in depth individual analysis to work through the problem. You would be working alone and the completion of the project may or may not have much impact on company operations. However, after complete the process and problem you were working on will be streamlined and fundamentally understood.**

*Which project appeals to you the most, as it relates to the way you prefer to logically process information? Why?*

The first process because it has more impact on the company. The important thing is me to be succesfull. Nothing matters.

*What sort of things in this scenario, across either project, stood out to you as having a strong influence on your decision? Why?*



**Your college professor has assigned you to a group project with 3 other individuals. All 3 of these individuals have a good strong work ethic and desire to contribute to the overall success of this project. You are at the first meeting of your group and the other members are tossing around valuable ideas as to the nature and direction of this project.**

*Describe your behavior in this situation as you process and think about the ideas they are presenting.*

If they want to good their job good, it's good. They can toss around ideas, the first few meetings will be analyzing the project, finding problems, finding possible solutions, and planning how to do it. In the beginning I will let them do anything and then I will take charge. I will also make them think about the possibility of being even better. I will make them aim the impossible, so that they can give full effort.

*Describe what major influences drive this behavior.*

That is the best way to work. Success is all that matters.


**It has been a very long week and you feel mentally and emotionally drained, but good news! It is Saturday and you have nothing significant that needs to be done. You FINALLY have some free time to yourself to recharge your batteries and do whatever you want.**

*Describe what sort of activities would help you to recharge. What would you enjoy doing after a long week and why?*

I would do things that interests me. I would learn some French, maybe some Javascript, I would watch tv-shows too. The best possibility is this; I overthink everythink, I would probably consider my past, and future. I would think about what I should do. I would maybe play some video games too.

*What sort of things do you feel you draw non-physical energy from doing?*



**You have a meeting with your college career counselor to discuss potential careers that interest you. He/she offers you a list of the following careers and asks you to pick your TOP 3. He/she asks you to take money out of the equation. Imagine all of these careers received equal compensation. Focus instead on where you would truly feel most happy and fulfilled.**

**Artist, Scientist, Actor, Engineer, Musician, Lawyer, Counselor, Entrepreneur, Teacher, Manager, Psychologist, Computer Programmer / Analyst, Clergy, Child Care, Medical Doctor**

*What were your top 3 choices and what aspects of these careers appeal to you?*

Comptuer programmer, engineer, medical doctor. I would pick the artist at first but I lost that ability a year ago. I would write about philosophy in an aesthetic way, I loved symbolism. I also might pick musician, I bought a piano but I couldn't be succesfull at it, so it's out of the equation.

*Was it difficult or easy to pick only 3 and why?*

Easy. Other ones are boring.

*Prioritize the aspects of your career choices that influenced your decision, what things mattered most to you, where do you imagine finding the most fulfillment and why?*

I choosed based on what I want to be and what I could be. I can't be a scientist, I wanted that so much but I'm not capable. I don't think I am a genius. So I can't. I must be a genius in order to accomplish great things.


**Click on the image (too lazy to copy the link) and pay close attention to the things that jump out to you, objects, thoughts, feelings, impressions, ideas etc. What do you see?**

*Describe the main things that stand out to you in this picture.**

Oh, it's made digitally.

*Why do you think/feel you focused on those things?*

It was the first thing I thought.

*Describe the strength with which this photo did or did not appeal to you and why?*

It's ordinary. It didn't appeal to me.
