Having been a company’s Human Resource Assistant who interviews applicants, there are these questions I asked which I, myself, had a hard time answering.
1) Tell me something about yourself. (I am who and what God made me.)
2) What are your strengths and weaknesses?
3) Given a certain situation, would you decide by your feelings or intuition?
P.S.: I also wouldn’t like entertaining “What if’s”. I wouldn’t want to worry, fuss, and fret far more than I need to.
And so I’ll leave you with this question:
Which would you rather be if you had the choice–divinely beautiful or dazzlingly clever or angelically good?
― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
Today’s Daily Prompt reminded me of a test I’ve answered from the book, Kokology. Here it is:
Kokology 1 & 2
IN THE BAG
You’re walking down the street when you come across a closed black briefcase. There’s no one else around, and when you open it to check for the owner’s name, out spills a bundle of cash. What is your first reaction of this sudden windfall?
1. Hey, this must be my lucky day!
2. Oh no, what am I going to do now?
3. I’d better take a night to think this over
4. God must have wanted me to have this
(I chose No. 2)
KEY TO IN THE BAG
Your reaction in finding the bag of money reveals how you would react if an attractive person suddenly asked you out on a date.
1. “Hey, this must be my lucky day!”
You have a childlike capacity for joy at your own good fortune. If more people could express their happiness like you, the world would be a better place.
2. “Oh no, what am I going to do now?”
It’s normal to feel a little uncertain at times like these. But in the end the decision is all up to you. Take your time and think it over, but don’t spend too long wringing your hands or someone else might just come along and snatch your good fortune out from under your nose.
3. “I’d better take a night to think this over.”
Big decisions should be made with a clear head after a good night’s sleep. There’s a lot to be said for your policy of looking before you leap, but wouldn’t it feel good every once in a while to cross the street without looking both ways? Sometimes you need to go with your instincts, even if it means taking some unacceptable risks. Love and danger go hand in hand.
4. “God must have wanted me to have this.”
Either you don’t take divine intervention very seriously, or you think of dating as a religious experience.
The answer suits me well. Not just when someone would ask me out on a date, but in general circumstances that need decision-making.
And no, I’m not going to keep something that isn’t mine.
