61 Questions for Self-discovery

12:16 PM

I’ve been seeing a lot of these question-and-answer posts from the blogs that I followed so I thought I would try answering the questions too. I found this HERE and there are actually 100 questions but I narrowed it down to 61 since I honestly can’t answer the other items. Well, in relation to psychology, answering these type of questions will able you to know more about yourself. It’s actually knowing yourself by asking your own self, a form of Introspection.

These are the questions that I've selected:

If a mysterious benefactor wrote you a check for $5000 and said, “Help me solve a problem – any problem!” …what would you do with him/her? I have a problem too, because I don’t trust strangers. If possible I’ll make a background check first but then, I don’t think I would agree with the deal, it’s really hard for me to trust people.

What’s going to be carved on your (hypothetical) tombstone? R.I.P. You are loved and will be remembered always.
