38 questions  
Haven't done one of these "revealing" questionnaires for years. Found these questions (taken from here) quite interesting and indeed rather revealing. Here goes...

1. If you could have superpowers, would you use it for good or for evil?
Good ... Well, maybe a bit of mischief when people bully me.

2. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
16. Am used to looking and behaving like a damn kid but understanding people like I'm 50.

3. Would you accept the gift of reading other people’s minds if it meant you could never turn it off?

4. If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?
Would retire immediately or go freelance, then go see the world and play like hell!

5. Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
Still think it's a weakness though. But as I've learnt through the years, God's grace is sufficient for me, for His power is made perfect in weakness (2 Cor 12:9).

6. Would you rather be able to eat as much as you want with no weight gain, or require only 3 hours of sleep a day?
Three hours of sleep - far too much to do in a day! Much as I love food, I think I can better control my food intake than make up for my lack of sleep.

7. If you had to choose to live without one of your 5 senses, which one would you give up?
Smell. No one would know and I'd rely on the reactions of people around me to spot any dangerous smells.

8. In what ways are you the same as your childhood self?
Still as naive, childish, idealistic, needy of praise and affection, and desirous of big brothers or sisters to idolise.

9. If you had your own TV network, what would it be about?
Skip - this requires too much thought; maybe I'll just feature hours on end of instrumental music.

10. If you’re in a bad mood, do you prefer to be left alone or have someone cheer you up?
Left alone for the most part, but obligations-free messages and invitations, heh.

11. Would you rather know without a doubt the purpose and direction of your life or never have to worry about money for the rest of your life?
Never have to worry about money for the rest of my life - I can tweak my purpose and direction on my own.

12. If you could master one skill you don’t have right now, what would it be?
There are far too many skills I desire! I want to be able to *verbalise* my thoughts and arguments coherently, logically, succinctly, persuasively and authoritatively -- all within a matter of seconds -- so that I can always provide timely retorts to bullies peddling arguments with poor logic. If that's too impossible a wish, then I want to be a master chef.

13. What song typifies the last 24 hours of your life?

(Actually this is just what I wish for myself lah. The last 24 hours were spent prepping for the flight back and feeling a bit sian and slightly anxious at having to return to work soon, and my vocab of songs isn't large enough to find a suitable one for that, hehe.)

14. What words would you pass to your childhood self?
The adults don't always know best; fight harder to do what you really want to do, work on getting far better at what you're already good at and are interested in. Forget about physics, change CCA, pay attention in class!!! LOL.

15. If you had to do it over again, what would you study in school?

16. If you could have any accent, which one would it be?
British for English, Taiwanese for Mandarin, hehe.

17. Would you rather be married in an arranged marriage or spend the rest of your life single?
Single. I already came to this liberating conclusion before my last break-up. :)

18. If you could be someone of the opposite sex for a day, what would be the first thing you do?
Hope I'm a goodlooking guy. Will go out and try to pick up a nice girl for a one-night stand, haha.

19. Would you rather have an extra hour every day or have $40 given to you free and clear every day?
An extra hour a day.

20. If you were to be stranded on a deserted island with one other person, who would it be?
My sister rox my sox!

21. What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?
Would have kid out of wedlock.

22. Would you rather spend 48 straight hours in a public restroom or spend the next 2 months taking only public transportation?
48 hours in a public toilet. Get it over and done with ... As long as I have my fully charged phone and wifi.

23. What did you learn in school that has proven to be the least useful?
Differentiation and integration, poisson, log and many of those JC Math topics. They're probably highly useful to other people in other professions, but somehow I haven't ever had to use those concepts outside of classes.

24. If you had an extra hour every day, what would you do with it?
Sleep or read or watch TV.

25. Would you rather lose your sense of taste and smell or lose all of your hair?
Lose all my hair - I've never had much to start with anyway. Can always use a wig and have the flexibility of changing hairstyle every other month or so.

26. If you could invent something, what would it be and why?
Teleporter. So I can teleport home for dinner and weekends. Can teleport dad over for hiking and mum over to visit her friends. So good!

27. Would you rather have more than 5 friends or fewer than 5 friends?
More than five friends. People say don't put your eggs all in one basket, some are bound to let you down.

28. What stands between you and happiness?
About 10 million dollars. Haha, only partly true. Life isn't all about happiness!

29. If today were to be your last day in your country, what would you want to do?
I don't know ... It seems like almost everything can somehow be made available online, recreated here or sent over in a jiffy. Guess I would just go walk around the neighbourhood area with my family and go 85 for one last meal there, so sad.

30. Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?
Lose all my old memories. No point returning day after day to old memories and only being able to dwell on them.

31. What was the last thing you got for free?
Some free cash from dad, hehe.

32. Would you rather be extremely attractive or be married to someone who is extremely attractive?
Be extremely attractive, feels more secure that way, haha.

33. What do you want to be remembered for?
"Her quiet intellect and generosity of spirit..."

34. Would you rather have $50,000 free and clear or $1,000,000 that is illegal?
Actually hor, I'd rather have the one million leh...but provided its illegality would never get found out.

35. If you could trade lives with one of your friends, who would it be?
My taitai friends. Such envy-inducing lifestyles!

36. Would you rather discover something great and share it? Or discover something evil and prevent it?
Something great and share it. If you prevent something evil, you and others will forever wonder that maybe it wouldn't have worked out all evil after all and that you shouldn't have prevented it.

37. What movie deserves a sequel?
我的少女时代. Because I'm a sucker like that, lol.

38. If you could see 24 hours into the future, what would you be doing?
At work? Sadness!!
