Question of the Week #239

If your mother and father told you that they never really loved or even liked you, and you knew it was absolutely true, how would it affect your life? What if you simply overheard them saying this to someone else? What a horrible question! I'd put them in the crooked home we saw on 60 … Continue reading Question of the Week #239

Question of the Week #238

What if they might someday find out you'd been watching? Do you think you could ever be at ease under constant surveillance? This is a follow up to last week's question that asked if you would be willing to on anyone at any time without being detected. I said last week that I wouldn't want … Continue reading Question of the Week #238

Question of the Week #237

If, without being detected, you could spy electronically for the next month and watch anyone, anywhere, anytime like a fly on a wall, would you? If so, who would you watch and how closely? If not, why not? Uh... I typically do that every summer. It's called Big Brother and I'm a little upset that … Continue reading Question of the Week #237

Question of the Week #235

Would you like to be famous? If so, for what? What if you knew it meant that within a few years you'd lose all your current friends and never develop new relationships that were as meaningful? Fame, from what I understand, is a fickle thing. I don't think I'd want to reach celebrity status. But … Continue reading Question of the Week #235

Question of the Week #234

What if you found that the person you planned to marry would likely get Alzheimer's by his or her 50th birthday? This week's question is a follow-up to last week's question, which asked if one would go through with a marriage if one's betrothed were to somehow become disabled prior to the wedding. So, as … Continue reading Question of the Week #234

Question of the Week #233

If the person you were engaged to was in a car crash and became a paraplegic, would you back out of the marriage? If not, what if they became a quadriplegic? I thought this question looked familiar and, yeah... I've used it before. Way back in the Question of the Week from November 28, 2015. … Continue reading Question of the Week #233

Question of the Week #232

If it were the only way you could remain with the love of your life, would you be willing for both of you to wake up tomorrow as native speakers of an unfamiliar foreign language, knowing that within a week you'd permanently forget the languages you now speak and largely be cut off from your … Continue reading Question of the Week #232

Question of the Week #231

For $100,000, would you put on 40 pounds and keep it on for 3 years? How much money, if any, would induce you to put on 100 pounds for at least a year? I don't think so. I mean, I'm already overweight as it is. $100,000 over three years really isn't much. I mean, sure, … Continue reading Question of the Week #231

Question of the Week #190

Do you feel you have much impact on the lives of people you come in contact with? Can you think of someone who, over a short period of time, significantly influenced your life? I'm sure I have more of an impact than I realize. Especially in the work that I do. As a counselor working … Continue reading Question of the Week #190
