          c. You get a boyfriend/girlfriend and spend your money nurturing that relationship.


          3. Assume that you are in a serious love relationship, and you know you want to make a good impression.

          a. You spend all your free time seeking an adrenaline rush.

          4. Assume that you know people have an expectation of you.

          b. You try to rise to the expectations by demonstrating good behavior and responsible deeds.

          c. You avoid expectation but place priority on pursuing goals.


          5. Assume that you are at a party and are getting drunk.
