About You
I recall a certain RPG called "Kingdom Hearts" by Square Enix. Early in this game you are asked 3 questions :
1. What is important to you?
---A. Being Number One.
---B. Friendship
---C. My prized possessions.
2. What are you so afraid of?
---A. Getting Old.
---B. Being different.
---C. Being indecisive.
3. What do you want out of life?
---A. To see rare sights.
---B. To broaden my horizons.
---C. To be strong.

I would like to know what your answers are to these questions, and should you feel kind enough to do so, please tell why. Allow me to begin :

1. B. What's the point in being number one? Once you get there, there's nothing left and therefore no reason to continue living. What's the point in prized possessions if you have no one to share them with. My father, for example, is always complaining about being unhappy. He then proceeds to buy something new, like a boat, motorcycle, etc. A few months later that object is sold because he is too ignorant to see past his lack of enjoyment, and simple objects cannot satisfy that.

2. C. I'm not truly AFRAID of this. I simply find that I become extremely uncomfortable when I am unable to form an opinion on something. I like being able to speak my mind and give input to something.

3. B. In my opinion, one can never know enough.

Well, what about the rest of you? What are you?

1) A Being number one is important because with it i'd have both b and c. I could buy my friends and possessions. You're telling me a king(who I assume would be number one) has nothing to live for.

2) A Getting old to myself is seen as a step towards death.

3) B Everything's a rare sight and strength is overrated. Brains over brains baby.

1. C. my prized possesions are the most important thing i have. these things woul be my mind. my ability to think and my ability to percieve and presume with great accuracy. my freinds. i am not shallow, just willing to admit they are a possesion and one i value. if you lose something, that item is gone. that possesion is gone. same with freinds. freinds are items. and i prize them.

2. B. if i become to "different" i will no longer be human. being human is very importantt o me, because with out my humanity my prized possesions would leave and be replaced by other things. those things might be of malicious origin. i beleive so because i believe all humans are in nature "good". not indecisiveness because i am humiliated and know, not think, know, that i am ignorant and stupid in many ways. and if i find myself incapable of making a decision based on my lack of knowledge. i find that i am being wise and intelligent in understanding my weakness. i am ok with my weakness because if i try to get rid of it, that asperation might take control over me, and being controled is something i fear greatly.

3. C. all my knowledge and all my rare sights mean nothing if i cannot protect those i love and care about.

I played Kingdom Hearts too, so here's what I put:
1. B) Friendship. Who doesn't love friends? Being number one is so egotistical and prized possessions is materialism.
I remember I thought a long time about this next one. I almost picked 'C', but then I realized that I'm indecisive a lot and it's never bothered me a bit so I thought long and hard and realized:
2. A) Getting Old. To me, getting old means losing passion, youth, and all the things I love. And the whole impending death thing plays into hand, too.
3. B) To broaden my horizons. I'm always interested in new things, constant curiosity I suppose, so it seemed natural to choose B.
