|Relationship to Friends
| Do you become close to friends, or hold most people at a safe distance?
I have an abundance of close friends
I have some close friends
I have few close friends
I try to keep people at a distance
| Do you insist on repayment when lending money to friends?
No, they just owe me a favor
No, although itís sure nice to be repaid
Yes, but I try to be flexible about the exact terms
Yes, and I write up a contract so thereís no misunderstanding
| Have you ever betrayed a friend?
Iíd never contemplate such a thing
Iíve been tempted to do so, but Iíve never gone through with it
Iíve done so once
Iíve done so more than once, and I sometimes get away with it
|Relationship to Community
| Do you respect the laws and authorities in the community?
Yes, without question
Yes, theyíre generally the best way to govern
When it suits me - there are some laws I just donít agree with
I donít pay attention to the authorities; theyíve got no hold on me
| If you were injured and required immediate assistance, would members of your home community agree to help?
Yes, because they know Iíd do the same for them
Yes, because Iím generally well liked
Probably not, because Iím distrusted by the powers that be
Definitely not. Iíve made some enemies here
| Your community is threatened with invasion. Do you:
Help defend it to your last breath
Man the barricades with the rest of the community
Flee as soon as things look grim
Cut a deal with the invaders to act as a spy
|Thoughts on Crime and Punishment
| If imprisoned, would you injure or kill others to escape?
No. Those guards are just doing their jobs
No, except for minor wounds that will heal easily
Yes. They knew the risks when they took the job
Yes. Serves íem right for locking me up
| If guilty, would you confess to a crime?
Yes, because it is my duty to do so
Yes, because it might get me a lighter sentence
No, Iíd make the magistrates prove my guilt
No, and Iíd try to "prove" my innocence
| Do you accept a nobleís right to treat badly the serfs who work on his land?
Yes. Theyíre lucky theyíre not slaves
Yes, because sometimes only fear will motivate them
No, nobles should rule as kindly as possible
No one has any "right" to treat another badly. Period
|Thoughts on Business and the Economy
| When confronted by beggars, do you:
Give only what I wouldnít miss anyway - a copper or two at most
Ignore them as you walk by
| Whatís the best path to wealth?
Itís a matter of luck and being in the right place at the right time
Staying flexible so you can take advantage of good opportunities
Following a long-term plan that incorporates a comfortable level of risk
Hard work and perseverance
| If you accepted a job or contract, would you try to finish the task even if it got much more dangerous?
Yes, my word is my bond
Yes, because itís good to have a reputation for dependability
You can bet Iíd be renegotiating
If itís no longer a good deal, then the deal is off
