I'm really in doubt please help me.

"Your significant other just ended your 2 year relationship quite suddenly and with no apparent explanation. Up until this point you had both been talking about marriage and last week you even went to look at rings together. Now he/she won't even return your phone calls or texts. After talking with his/her family you find out that he/she has just been diagnosed with terminal stage 4 cancer.

- Describe how this scenario would make you feel as well as what sort of influences and motivations lie behind those feelings. Why do you feel the way you do?

- In this scenario what would you honestly say the primary focus of your feelings would be?"

I would be very shaken and afraid of the future, would also be a little hurt because he did not tell me and preferred to simply end the relationship, I would talk to him and convince him to continue the relationship, would not accept no as an answer because I would really want to be on his side, especially for me and I wouldn't want to leave him alone either. I could not be without him, I would think a lot about how the future would be without him and would be very sad, I would also wonder a lot if there is life to death because I will find him later.


"You are in college and this semester both you and your roommate end up in the same class together. You and your roommate get along fairly well and the living situation works but you aren't particularly close. You both typically do your own thing and are rather indifferent to each other. As the semester progresses you excel and become one of the top students in the class whereas your roommate is struggling significantly to grasp the material. The professor assigns a fairly challenging take home test that is a significant portion of your grade. He/she makes it clear that while it is open book, students are to work alone. Later your roommate comes to you begging for help after struggling with the test most of the weekend. You have already completed the assignment and he/she isn't asking to copy your answers, just to help tutor and mentor them as they struggle to complete the test, so there is no way your professor would ever know. However, this is the first time your room-mate has asked you for help this semester. He/she makes it clear that how they do on this test could mean the difference between passing and failing this class.

- How do you respond to your roommate’s request and why?

- What sort of things in this scenario stand out to you as far as having a strong influence on your decision making and why?

- Describe the flow of your decision making process."

I'm afraid the teacher finds out and we both get in trouble, but I won't leave him alone either, so I agree but I will help change the answers so the teacher doesn't notice. I think what stands out mainly is fear and insecurity, fear of being discovered and insecurity about what I'm doing, because it's not very correct and I'm also afraid of him getting a higher grade than mine working so little, but I can't leave my roommate like that either.

"Your boss calls you into his/her office in order to assign you to a new project. He/she gives you a choice between two.

Project 1 is a rather broad, expansive project covering multiple areas of company operations. It has the potential to have a very significant impact on company operations but it would require a collective effort and an extensive amount of group work where you would be logically thinking through the project together with the group of individuals your boss has also assigned to it.

Project 2 has a much more specific and narrow focus and would require a significant amount of in depth individual analysis to work through the problem. You would be working alone and the completion of the project may or may not have much impact on company operations. However, after complete the process and problem you were working on will be streamlined and fundamentally understood.

- Which project appeals to you the most, as it relates to the way you prefer to logically process information? Why?

- What sort of things in this scenario, across either project, stood out to you as having a strong influence on your decision? Why?"

the second, because I can't think when there are too many people asking me something. Working alone is always very good for me, because no one will judge my decisions, I don't like to be ashamed because of my ideas.I also like the idea of ​​being able to accomplish something by myself that is complicated.

"Your college professor has assigned you to a group project with 3 other individuals. All 3 of these individuals have a good strong work ethic and desire to contribute to the overall success of this project. You are at the first meeting of your group and the other members are tossing around valuable ideas as to the nature and direction of this project.

- Describe your behavior in this situation as you process and think about the ideas they are presenting.

- Describe what major influences drive this behavior."

I'm really nervous, I hate working in groups, and when I see everyone throwing ideas I feel small and stupid, because nothing comes to my mind and I start to get very insecure. I'm afraid to give any ideas and they find it too simple or too bad. but I try to think of something that I might like to work on that relates to it. among the alternatives that they talk about that will draw my attention the most will be one that we can suppose more than do, I don't want to do a field research, I prefer to analyze a problem that is interesting to me, such as technology-related sociology ( I do computer engineering) or something from math that sounds interesting to me, boolean algebra and sets.

"It has been a very long week and you feel mentally and emotionally drained, but good news! It is Saturday and you have nothing significant that needs to be done. You FINALLY have some free time to yourself to recharge your batteries and do whatever you want.

- Describe what sort of activities would help you to recharge. What would you enjoy doing after a long week and why?

- What sort of things do you feel you draw non-physical energy from doing?"

I usually put on some music and imagine some scenery that I would like to live, even if it is not part of my reality, for example being a princess.
I didn't understand that question very much, but definitely, if I'm tired, try to imagine something good happening or just me in a pleasantly unrealistic situation. I could also see a movie, but the first thing is easier. reading too is an activity that makes me very well and revitalized, forgetting for a moment what is in my life and just being with those characters or world is something I really enjoy doing.

"You have a meeting with your college career counselor to discuss potential careers that interest you. He/she offers you a list of the following careers and asks you to pick your TOP 3. He/she asks you to take money out of the equation. Imagine all of these careers received equal compensation. Focus instead on where you would truly feel most happy and fulfilled.

Artist, Scientist, Actor, Engineer, Musician, Lawyer, Counselor, Entrepreneur, Teacher, Manager, Psychologist, Computer Programmer / Analyst, Clergy, Child Care, Medical Doctor

- What were your top 3 choices and what aspects of these careers appeal to you?

- Was it difficult or easy to pick only 3 and why?

- Prioritize the aspects of your career choices that influenced your decision, what things mattered most to you, where do you imagine finding the most fulfillment and why?"

artist, scientist, programmer. Actually it was not difficult, I don't like biology very much so I exclude doctors and etc, I don't want to run people, and when I think of a profession it's always something that I can create and leave a mark on the world, I feel the need to leave something to the world, especially when it comes to academic things. It was difficult to choose 3, because even programmer, my real area, seems to me very practical and focused on a normal job. I want to work on something that I can see beauty and magic, science has several areas that make me cry because of elegance and art also shares this.

"Click on the image below and pay close attention to the things that jump out to you, objects, thoughts, feelings, impressions, ideas etc. What do you see?"

It reminded me of lord of the rings lol, the book I'm reading now, seems like a great place to explore, I'd really like to know this place. I think the brown color stands out a lot and the river. It seems that there is something hidden somewhere, I think because the image has a large dimension (?) and because there are many things in front of each other, for example the trees, I want to go see what is behind them. It attracted me because it is not a common place where I live, it seems to be where something magical occurs. A place where people hide to dream I'd say. I really like how it is closed, it looks like a place I would choose to set up a secret meeting with my friends.

I really appreciate anyone who can take time to read and help me.
