Psychologist and Therapist - Analyze Me For A Good Laugh

I don't know where I came across this but thought it might be an interesting exercise to share.

  • What did you dream of becoming when you were a kid? - Cartoonist, really ever since 4th grade that would fall under the category of dream.  Late teens it was about being rich.
  • What are your strengths and values? - I hate questions like this...I don't know if I really know.  I guess one core thing I can think of is honest.  Other than that I really don't know.  I think "strength" is a relative term and as such it depends on the circumstance.  Values?  Really, what the hell even is a value?  It depends on the circumstances at hand.  Yea, I could say "Don't kill someone." but if you threaten my ass, I might just kill you before you kill me.  So the value is also relative.
  • If money weren’t a problem, what would you spend your every day doing? - Any thing that struck my fancy at the time.  I like exploring and experiencing things.  I'm willing to try anything, and I'm not too keen on doing over and over the things I've done.
  • What would you be doing if you knew you couldn’t fail? - Fear of failure has never really held me back as an adult.  As a kid, yes.  I can't point to one or two specific things, but I know I didn't try things for fear of failure or embarassment.  I don't fear failure as much as fear mis-allocation of my resources or uncertainty of the best attack.
  • What’s your favorite way to spend your free time? - exploring, seeing or doing new things.
  • What have you done in your life that you are especially proud of? -I feel like I've been a good dad.  I guess I'm not the ultimate judge of that though.
  • What activity are you doing when it feels like time just flies by? - learning, researching some subject I've decided to look into.
  • When do you feel the most alive? - I guess to answer that I'd have to have compare it to a time I feel most dead, and I can't think of any of those. 
  • What kind of impact do you want to have? - why must I have an impact on anyone or thing?  I don't understand this concept.  I want to enjoy my life, for me.  I've done what every living thing is suppose to do...I multiplied, pro-created, perpetuated my genes, isn't the rest of my time for me, since I'm not expected to continue to have offspring.
  • What kind of professional and personal breakthroughs do you want to experience? - I want to be unburdened.
  • What are things (a language, a sport) you want to learn? - If I didn't have to balance this with limited funds or
  • How do you envision you will leave your goal or legacy on people’s lives? - my day job impacts a lot of people.  I would like to think maybe there is some sort of legacy effect of that, but as far as leaving my goal on peoples lives...what the hell does that mean?
  • What are you excited, happy, and enjoying most in your liferight now? - continuing to be able to survive.  If I can survive today, maybe tomorrow will be better.
