Invite to Try A Favourite Fictional Character Correlation Survey (8 quick questions)

I have a simple little 8 question survey I’d like you to fill out if you have a few minutes, regarding you and your a favourite fictional character. I’ll correlate the answers and report back in a few weeks.

Basically, I want to know your gender and age, the same for your character, which genre or type of franchise he/she/it is in, and if you perceive the character is good, evil, both or neither. It’s all explained in the survey below, or via this link if the embedded code below doesn’t appear right on whatever you are viewing this post.

Please do share this post with any others you think might want to do it to contribute to the outcome, and watch for an update on my site on Aug 10 or 11th. Thank you!

The IF Facebook Note

facebook notes for thinkersCopy the text between the dotted line as your note in Facebook, MySpace or other places. Put each of your answer on the line just below each emotion.

To make this an English as a Second / Foreign Language exercise, assign the note with some degree of explanation for each answer, whether a sentence, short paragraph or presentation.

——————————————————————————————–

You can get to know a lot about someone not just what is true of them, but what might be true of them if certain things were possible. If nothing else, it’s a good conversation starter or changer.

So put your CAPS LOCKS key ON to accentuate your answers and let’s get going!

 
1. If you could have stopped aging at any point in life till now, how old would you want to be forever?

 
2. If you could possess an extraordinary talent in one of the arts, what would it be?

 
3. If you could be fluent in another language you currently do not read or speak, which would it be?

 
4. If you could be forever recognized for one thing, what would you like to be known for?

 
5. If you could break one athletic record, which record would it be?

 
6. If you could only save one thing from your place in event of a disaster, what would it be?

 
7. If you could “uninvent” one thing from the world so it no longer existed, what would it be?

 
8. If you could have one personality trait from someone, what from whom would you choose?

 
9. If you could commit one crime without being caught, what crime would you commit?

 
10. If you could ensure your children had one experience you had, what would that be?

 
11. If you could start a new charity, who or what would it help?

 
12. If you could have lived the life of a fictional character, who would it be?

 
13. If you could resolve any dispute in the world right now, which one would you resolve?

 
14. If you could give out an annual award, what would it be for and who would win it first?

 
15. If you could get rid of one fear you have, which fear would it be?

 

 
If you didn’t know the person who gave the answers you did, what would you think of him/her?

 

 
Please tag some friends to encourage them to try this note as well, and please include me because I would like to know what you would do if some of these things could happen to you.

1. If you could have stopped aging at any point in life till now, how old would you want to be forever?
RIGHT NOW, BUT I’M NOT DISCLOSING WHAT THAT IS ON A PUBLIC BLOG.

2. If you could possess an extraordinary talent in one of the arts, what would it be?
PLAYING THE PIANO, DEFINITELY!

3. If you could be fluent in another language you currently do not read or speak, which would it be?
I FIND CHINESE VERY INTERESTING.

4. If you could be forever recognized for one thing, what would you like to be known for?
BEING A RENAISSANCE MAN WHO WAS GREATER THAN THE SUM OF HIS PARTS.

5. If you could break one athletic record, which record would it be?
WORLD MARATHON RECORD, FOR SURE!

6. If you could only save one thing from your place in event of a disaster, what would it be?
MY CHILDHOOD PHOTOS FROM VIET NAM (IN ONE BOX).

7. If you could “uninvent” one thing from the world so it no longer existed, what would it be?
SMOKING. THAT COUNTS AS A THING LUMPING IN CIGARETTES, CIGARS, WEED, POT, ETC.

8. If you could have one personality trait from someone, what from whom would you choose?
MICHAEL JORDAN’S DESIRE TO COMPETE IN LIFE.

9. If you could commit one crime without being caught, what crime would you commit?
I’D ASSASSINATE SOMEONE WHO DOES THE WORLD A LOT OF HARM, LIKE MAHMOUD AHMAJINEDAD IN IRAN. You know, sometimes I wish the “crazy” people of the world who kill others would go for a little redemption and kill somebody worth killing. There are plenty of those around. I guess that would make them sane, though. Anyway, you shouldn’t rant in your note! 🙂

10. If you could ensure your children had one experience you had, what would that be?
MY ESCAPE FROM VIET NAM. I LEARNED TO APPRECIATE SO MUCH AT SUCH A YOUNG AGE.

11. If you could start a new charity, who or what would it help?
IT WOULD BE A CHARITY TO FUND SCHOOLS THAT HAVE AN EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE CURRICULUM, HELPING CHILDREN AND YOUTHS WHO ARE CHALLENGED BY THEIR LACK OF EMOTIONAL CONTROL AND/OR DEVELOPMENT. OTHER KIDS WHO WANT TO ENROLL COULD ALSO ATTEND BECAUSE IT IS GOOD FOR EVERYONE. HOWEVER, IF IT WEREN’T FUNDED BY THE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM, THEN THOSE IN NEED WOULD BENEFIT FROM THE CHARITY AND THE REST WOULD HAVE TO PAY. CAN’T AFFORD TO ENROLL EVERYBODY IN IT!

12. If you could have lived the life of a fictional character, who would it be?
LT. COMMANDER DATA ON STAR TREK, THE NEXT GENERATION.

13. If you could resolve any dispute in the world right now, which one would you resolve?
THE ISRAELI-PALESTINIAN DISPUTE IS A GOOD ONE.

14. If you could give out an annual award, what would it be for and who would win it first?
THE GIV’ER AWARD, FOR BEST EFFORT TO GET THE MOST OUT OF LIFE WHILE BENEFITING OTHERS. MY FRIEND DENISE R. WOULD GET IT FOR BEING A SINGLE MOTHER OF THREE ADOLESCENT GIRLS, WORKING A FULL-TIME JOB AND HOLDING THE CANADIAN MASTERS WOMEN MARATHON RECORD.

15. If you could get rid of one fear you have, which fear would it be?
I SOMETIMES HAVE A LITTLE FEAR I FORGOT TO SET THE RADIO ALARM FOR WORK IN THE MORNING SINCE I TURN IT OFF FROM TIME TO TIME ON THE WEEKENDS.

 

 
If you didn’t know the person who gave the answers you did, what would you think of him/her?
SOMEONE WHO CARES AND IS INTERESTED IN A LOT ABOUT THE WORLD.

Say something on any or all of your choices, individually or as a group:
This wasn’t hard for me as I find inspiration easily in life, whether people or things. I could have done this note with 10 names apiece. I could have done this with people I know only rather than some famous people and some I know. I live by the philosophy I can learn something from everyone I meet, hear of, read about, etc. Most of it is positive and that usually equates to inspiration. It’s a wonderful mindset to constantly be in. It’s only too bad that with so many choices, in doing this note quickly, I didn’t come up with some more interesting answers since some sources of inspiration are much more prominent than others.
