Trick Questions- Embarrassing, Habit, and Dream

A Pulitzer-winning reporter is writing an in-depth piece – about you. What are the three questions you really hope she doesn’t ask you?

Journalistic style, I would answer these question directly.

Reporter: Mr Kevin,what is your most embarrassing thing you have ever done?
Me: well, I don’t want to get into the detail of it, but I’ll tell you this. I used to be a small-introvert boy and I got bullied then. Despite the thought of fighting back, I let the bully attack me again and again without defending myself or perhaps my dignity. I think it is embarrassing to not defend own’s pride and dignity despite of the limitation I used to have then.

Reporter: What is one unusual habit you do daily?
Me: I have allegrophobia, means that I fear of being late so I rarely took off my watch even at home. I need to know what time it is constantly and. I tend to prepare early.

Reporter: What is your wildest dream you can think of?
Me: I always want to fly with a jetpack, I think it would be cool to be able to fly and go anywhere I want. The other think I could think of is having a private party on an private island.

From the answer I provided, a psychologist or psychiatrist will be able to understand a bit of my personality and weakness so I think those questions represent the thing I feared the most.
