Do you browse through timetables, directories, or schedules just for pleasure?
Yeah, but not if they’re mine. I like looking through the ones on file when I’m on monitor duty, but in real life the most organized I’ll get is like a to-do list and a grocery list. It stresses me out to have too much planned personally.
Do you look at photographs of loved ones for pleasure?
Definitely. It’s been something I’m growing more and more conscious of, but it’s nice to have small mementos of people, even if they’re not around.
Do you derive pleasure from performing a task that you do not particularly enjoy?
Listen, I am a boss at dishes even though I hate them, and when I get a load done, I feel damn good.
Do you really think you know what “pleasure” means?
Yeah, but the Tamaranean language has like 20 different words that can all fall under the ‘pleasure’ umbrella in English…
When asked to make a decision, would you be swayed by your like or dislike of the person involved?
As long as it’s not life-or-death (and even then, I mean…), it would influence my choice, yeah.
Let’s say you hate the person and she or he is really rich. Same answer?
Still affects it.
Would you prefer to be in a position where you did not have the responsibilities of making decisions?
Nahh, not really. I can make decisions for myself, and I can follow qualified leaders. It’s not either-or for me.
Do you work in “spurts,” being relatively inactive and then furiously active for a day or two?
YES. I am notoriously bad for being really lazy and then suddenly wanting to do ALL THE THINGS.
Are you often impulsive in your behaviour?
I can’t usually control my initial reaction, if that’s what you mean? I tend to try and think things over if I can, but if any emotions are involved there’s no telling how impulsive I may or may not get.
Must you take the time to consider every angle before making a decision?
Do you consider that you could make an accurate/effective snap judgement?
Yes. I mean, I have been known to lose my cool, but I rarely make just horrible decisions. Part of having my level of emotional flux is knowing how to function outside it.
Is it normally hard for you to “own up and take the blame”?
No, not usually.
Would the idea of making a completely new start (in life) cause you much concern?
Been there, done that. Wouldn’t want to do it a second time, though.
