1. When you need to take an airplane, do you arrive at the airport just in time?
I always arrive at the airport with plenty of time left
I need to rush a bit to catch my plane
Well calculated, not too early but no rush
2. Would you cross the street when the pedestrian light is red?
All the time
If a lot of people were doing it at the same time
Only if I were in a big rush
I will check to see if there were any police around

3. Have you ever quit a job without have already found another one - you quit just because you are so frustrated with it?
I will never quit a job without having found another one
Yes, I have done it; it did not take me more than a day to decide
I think I would need to think about it - may be tolerate for a few months first
I would start looking for a job and if I think the market is good, I might do it
4. When would you use a map?

Never, I will rather ask a stranger
Sometimes, when I am lost
Very often, I will check the map before taking on a route which I am not familiar with
5. When would you go and see a doctor?
Whenever I do not feel well, may be a cough or flu
When I do not feel well, I'll try to take some off-the-shelf medicine and if the symptom did not go away after a few days, I'll go and see a doctor
I'll ask the drug store to recommend some medicine
I'll first find some medicine at home which seemingly best fits my symptom
I won't take any medicine until I cannot bear it anymore

I buy every round
I buy only if a special huge stake is available

I keep all valuables at a bank's deposit box
I keep all valuables in a safe at home
I keep my valuables in different banks' deposit boxes
I keep my valuables in locked drawers at home
My valuables are in different unlocked places at home
8. What is your investment style?
I am a professional investor - I do thorough analyses myself
I accept professional advices from my investment manager
My friends and I share information and I use much of such information to make my investment decisions
I will suddenly buy/sell casually depending on how much spare money is in my bank account
I have no investment experience
9. Would you attend a party thinking that you probably do not know anyone there?
I just won't go
I will have to struggle to go; when I arrive, I will desperately look around in hope to find someone that I know and stick with that person
I will go but only to say hello to the host, grab some food and disappear
Yes, I would love to go and hope to meet new friends
10. Have you ever signed a contract without reading the fine prints?
Never, I always insist on reading through all the details before I will sign
Sometimes, but only for what I think are very standard contracts - e.g. bank account holder agreements, some appliance maintenance contracts, etc.
Actually quite often, I briefly glance through and if it looks professionally done, I will just sign it
Always, I just don't bother to go through any contract details
