Most everyone spends at least some time each day in idle fantasy. Which of the following sounds most like one of your favorite daydreams?
Surely that's not all! What else do you often think wistfully of?
Similarly, everyone has things that they worry about. What sort of things do you MOST OFTEN worry about? Note that this question isn't asking which of these is most troubling, just the most typical.
You're being offered one wish from a magic genie. You can ask for absolutely anything. After consideration you ask the genie to:
You've been offered an opening career in your dream job. The timing is right, the pay is right -- things can't get any better! What job is it?
Someone finds you sitting at a computer, surfing the internet. What are you looking at?
It's Saturday. How will your day unfold?
You wake up at a reasonable hour, so as not to disrupt your normal sleeping schedule, and get to work. You may have things you need to finish up at the office, or you may have a conference call or important meeting today. Whatever it is, you're prepared for it.
Wake up and head straight for the computer or the nearest bookshelf to pick up where you left off the night before. If you even went to bed, that is.
Shower, brush your teeth, spray yourself with something pleasantly scented, and put on your best clothes. Of course you'll need to check yourself in the mirror a few times before heading out. Then, it's time to see who you can charm into joining you for the evening.
After you've slept in suitably late, you get yourself ready for what will surely be a wonderful evening on the town. You've been looking forward to this all week! If you don't have someone to bring with you, you're sure you'll run into someone along the way.
You and some of your closest friends will be hanging out, possibly getting ready for a big party you'll be throwing tonight. Of course, if you're not in the mood for a big party, there's also a good chance you'll just spend the evening chatting and ultimately having a good time.
If you have kids, you're pretty sure you'll be getting up whenever they do. Someone has to cook them breakfast! If not, you're probably going to be spending the evening with any family close enough to visit, or at least giving them a call to see how their weekend is going.
Turn on the cooking channel and get ready to take notes. Somebody might be making an alternative version of your favorite food today and you want to be prepared to try it this evening.
When it comes to an ideal romantic partner, what do you look for?
Someone successful and hard working. You need someone who understands your life, and is willing to contribute to mutual success. You don't have the time or money to fool around with the whimsical and uncertain!
A good cook. Even better if they can teach you a few new things.
Probably one of your close friends. You already spend a lot of time together, and you know they get along well with your friends. And if things don't work out, well -- hopefully things will just go back to the way they were.
Romantic partner... hmm. If you have one, it would need to be someone who understands your rather eclectic take on life and accepts it.
Someone reliable and loyal. You want someone who will always be there for you, and someone your entire family can rely on. There's no room for doubt in your life when it comes to something this important.
Someone who knows how to really enjoy life. What's the fun of spending every weekend in, or never taking risks? You know how to live, and you need that in any partners of yours as well.
Whatever it is about them that happens to catch your eye this time. Could be a smile, could be their eyes, could be something they said -- there's no telling, really.
Everyone has their regrets in life. Which of these are regrets of yours, or are similar to them?
Not studying as hard as I could have (or dropping out of school, if applicable), not trying something new or different when I had the chance, letting fear stop me from living my life to the fullest
Not working as hard as I could, not putting in that extra mile to be sure something got done right, not being as financially wise as I could have
Not being there to support someone I loved in a time of need, letting someone I loved drift away from me, not always being as loyal as I could or should have been
Saying something that came around to bite me later, not taking time to try and figure out who my real friends were, not being able to be there for everyone I care about, not being as close to some of my friends as I could have been
Burning my food because of my own carelessness, talking about cooking when I knew others were bored of what I had to say, not buying enough ingredients for dinner
Taking myself too seriously, letting a foul mood ruin what could've been an otherwise great day, not taking time to enjoy the simple things in life
Being careless about who I dated and where we went, committing to something I knew I wouldn't be able to stick to, making promises I couldn't keep, losing the love of someone due to jealousy
As this is the end of the test, it seems only fitting to include a question about the end of your life (what do you mean, 'morbid'?) If you could pick a way to go, how would it be?
