You stop your car, turning on the warning lights and jump out to offer your help. You drive past him thinking he brought himself into the situation he is in and should therefore be able to solve it himself. You attend to the man as fast as you can, bringing the first aid kit with you and then offer to drive him to the hospital. As it is forbidden to stop your car on the side of the road you only slow down and ask the man through the window if you can help. You assess the man’s state and think twice before deciding that it isn’t your problem and drive past him. You call the police to report the man and let them decide if they want to help him or not and thereafter drive past him. You stop the car as you feel sorry for the man and approach him cautiously to analyse your newfound relationship and how you both can benefit from it. 2) Two of your friends call you at the same time asking for help whilst you are at a family member’s birthday party. What do you do? You take the opportunity to make your excuses to leave the party, yet don’t commit to help any of your friends. You have already committed to the party and feel it would be rude to leave unless any of your friends can convince you it is important. You firstly offer other solutions to try to help. You’re too lazy to go anywhere as you are sitting on a comfortable chair at the party. You analyse from whom you can gain most of by helping. You decline any aid with the only excuse being that you are otherwise engaged. You stay at the party you have committed to unless it is a medical emergency. You try to fit everyone in and schedule so that the time is sufficient to help both your friends and stay as long as expected at the party. 3) You have been confronted regarding an issue that you advised on, after results show you were wrong. What do you do? You argue that you didn’t have access to the full data when you gave your advice. You inform that the information can be interpreted in different ways and the results are only viewed from the eyes of the beholder. You double-check the result to ensure you agree with it and confirm your new findings without giving an apology. You apologise for any inconvenience caused by your incorrect advice. You also offer to help correct any damaged caused by yourself. You state that the variables leading to the result are dynamic and hence your advice was correct at the point it was given. You review the result and make necessary changes to any actions derived from it and ensure it hasn’t inconvenienced anyone. You review the result and ensure that the amendments and correct data are logged. 4) You are walking down a dark alley with your family when a mugger attacks you. What do you do? Tell everyone to cooperate with the mugger so that no one gets hurt. You place yourself between the mugger and your family, ready to attack the mugger. You refuse to be cooperative and bring up your phone to call the police as what he is doing is illegal. You try to reason and manipulate the mugger to abort his attack. Tell everyone to run and make a run for it yourself. You stand quietly with your family without making any movement or sound as you know he will eventually go away when he has what he wants. You attack the mugger with the aim of bringing him down so that the police can arrest him. 5) You have just met your newfound love. Although you have not been together for long your partner askes for your hand in marriage. What will you answer? You feel pressured to say yes so not to make a scene in a public place and think you can always get out of it after you have made the most of the relationship. You have never had a serious relationship and are not keen to commit, hence you make your excuses to escape to never contact your date again. You like taking risks when it comes to love and answer ‘yes’ straight away. You don’t want to upset your date and have a long conversation about your standpoint in the relationship and where you see it going. You enjoy being by yourself and are not ready for commitment until you feel comfortable. You still want to carry on dating. If your date is the one, you have faith in the relationship and that you will stay together, hence there is no rush to make your promises just yet. You accept however to compromise by setting the wedding date in the far future. If the date isn’t meant for you, you decline and end the relationship. If this date were your soulmate you would already know and have no problem to commit. 6) Your friend has come into serious trouble on the other side of the world and asks for you to travel there to help. What do you do? You will assess the situation and journey if that is the right thing to do and you know you are not leaving your family at a disadvantage at home. You are a loyal friend and don’t think twice on taking the first flight to join your friend in solving his troubles. You don’t like hard work and need to be convinced the trip is absolutely necessary to make to save your friend or you will stay at home. You will only journey to your friend if he is in need of medical advice and has been harmed, as you don’t enjoy the discomfort during travelling. You journey to your friend and guide them though their trouble after a thorough investigation of your rights. If the person is dear to you, you will make the journey. You will also have to assess the success of being able to help. If it is a lost cause you will decline your aid. You don’t want to waist your time or money flying half way around the world and attempt solving the problem over the phone, unless your friend will pay to travel in luxury. 7) Three of your friends have decided to go skydiving on an important national holiday and have asked if you want to join them. What do you do? You feel that it is dangerous to skydive, where anything could go wrong and hence decline as well as attempting to talk your friends out of it. As your friends are asking for you to miss a traditional holiday you have to decline so that you can spend the day as you do every year. You love to be in the air and would not want to disappoint your friends and hence accept. You assess your commitment of the national holiday and the proposal by your friends and keep any promises you have already made. You have always wanted to go skydiving and agree without thinking too much about it. You like to release adrenaline and spending it with good friends, hence you join them. You think twice about joining and if you could get something out of going. You only accept if you feel it is advantageous. 8) You receive a phone call with a great offer on an all inclusive five star holiday if you sign up right there and then. What would you do? It is a luxury trip and a great offer so you would gladly accept without thinking about the validity of the offer. You are sceptical and don’t feel the need to go on a random trip. If you wanted a getaway you can plan it yourself. You think twice about the validity of the trip and ask detailed questions to find out what you will gain from the trip in comparison to organising it yourself. You don’t enjoy travelling and would not accept an offer that pressures you to commit on the spot. You always leave the travel plans to the professionals and don’t like the confrontation on the phone hence attempt to terminate the conversation as soon as possible. You will listen to the offer, as you don’t want to cut the sales rep off and make your decision based on the information and whether or not it is legit. You will assess the validity of the offer. As you always keep your promises and commitments you are reluctant to accept any offer that is pressuring you to commit on a time constraint. 9) You are going on a cave tour with your family and are supplied with multiple safety articles, which appear excessive for the task. What do you do? You assess if the trip into the cave is safe considering the multiple articles and only agree to go if you find it will be safe, wearing all the equipment provided. You follow any set procedures by the organisers whether or not you assess them to be necessary. You would feel very claustrophobic inside a cave and would therefore never agree to go into it in the first place. You would always wear the safety articles provided as instructed to ensure everyone’s safety. If the trip appears too dangerous you would abort the quest. You follow instructions and wear the safety articles until you are able to make your own judgement. You are strong and fit and ready for a risky adventure and hence ignore the safety instructions. You will ignore the safety instructions as you have made the assessment they are not necessary. 10) You and a large group of co-workers have completed a job for a client and as thanks you receive a large box of chocolates. What do you do? None of your co-workers know you received the box hence you take it home yourself without telling the others. You share the box of chocolates with your co-workers, thanking them for their efforts and claiming it was from you. You don’t like social interaction and ask your co-worker to draw straws on who can bring the box of chocolates home. You wouldn’t dream of doing anything else than sharing the reward, which would be the kind and fair thing to do considering everyone has contributed to the result. You don’t care much for praise as long as you know yourself that you have done a good job and hence leave the box of chocolates at the office without explanation. You share the box of chocolates with your co-workers but not before advising of its medical downfalls. You decline the box of chocolates from the client as you have received fair payment for your service already and additional goods provided could be seen as a bribe. 11) You win the jackpot on the lottery. What do you do with it? You carefully assess the best use of the funds. You distribute some of it to people in need and keep the rest to ensure a comfortable and safe environment for you and your family’s future. You keep it a secret, as you don’t wish for anyone else to know your private business. You would buy luxury items that make your life more comfortable inside your home and keep the rest in a safe place. You ensure you distribute funds to your family to the point they have sufficient and then place the rest in assets or investments. You go on a shopping trip, buying anything you want, including a trip around the world. You have no interest in money and give most of it away to your family, friends and charitable organisations. Wealth is important for you to show your status hence you buy jewellery, clothes, cars and other valuables that would showcase your new status. You would find it difficult to accept that you didn’t earn the money yourself. You ensure you upgrade your house, car and other gadgets to impress your friends and family, letting them know you have powerful influences. 12) You live in the suburb not too far away from your work and have a family of four members. You need to replace your car. What car would you buy? You would buy the car that would pollute the least and would conform to the latest legislation on environmentally friendly energy.
