Loaded questions about life that have very difficult answers to
I have listed here questions that pretty much challenge your mundane existence as I attempt to shake your core. Perhaps ruffle your feathers a bit. You may be able to answer a couple of them. As for the others well, you would probably prefer to have more time to come up with your response. Just give them some thought..
- If there was neither heaven nor hell, will you conduct yourself without morals?
Imagine not being answerable for your actions. Would you still choose the right path? Will majority of humanity live a life of debauchery and crime? Answers can be terrifying.
- Are you willing to donate your kidney to a loved-one knowing it will impact your own health negatively?
If you are faced with this dilemma, you think you are being a bad person for not trying to do what you can to save either your daughter or your brother if you do not give in to what the situation calls for. And if you do, are you willing to die with that choice?
- How will you spend your remaining life if you know you will die in exactly three days?
Given the limited time, the question again is if you will do more good things or unleash your evil because you feel very bad that you will die soon?
- Is there something that only you can do better?
Is this question even answerable? There may be at least two people that are alike in this world. I mean, how will you ever know for sure?
- Why do terribly bad things happen to amazingly good people?
We are deeply affected when we learn about the crazy evil things that befall those that seemingly don’t deserve them. Like the hardworking social worker who helps victims of abuse but in turn, gets murdered brutally in broad daylight. You ask, “why???”
- Why can’t we just all co-exist and live peacefully?
Yes, why can’t we? Global peace probably exists only in our pipe dreams. Power is the worst enemy.
- If an unspeakable crime was committed against you, would you still want to live your life the same way again?
Most of us say, we should live our life without any regrets, Others claim they will still pick their current life and would not trade it for anything else. But what if you are one unlucky person who has lived to tell (or choose not to) his or her harrowing experience?
- What is stopping you from letting go of something you have held onto for a long time?
You have your reasons for choosing to hang on to whatever it is. So releasing it from your hold will be very difficult for you to do.
9). What are the things in your own perspective other people dislike about you?
This could very well be a bitter pill to swallow. It is common to be blindsided by our own behaviors especially if we only have the best intentions. If you could identify your answers, the next question could be – “Are you willing to change so that those people will like you more?”
10) How much of yourself do the closest people to you know about you? If that’s not 100 percent, why do you want to keep that part to yourself?
If you are the spouse of this person who chooses to keep something to himself/ herself, you might feel bad that he or she does not trust you enough to open up to you entirely. But some say that you should still keep something within you to leave a bit of mystery. I would really think this is a loaded question that can test relationships.
11). At which point are you willing to compromise your values?
This sounds like a test of character and authenticity. There may be situations that will push you to do something that will result in cognitive dissonance which is a psychological term. This is where a person becomes torn with two opposing beliefs or ideas. But because of certain circumstances, you might have to go with a decision that is contrary to what you stand for.
12). What defines your life at the moment?
Does life really have to have a meaning? People have different goals set for themselves. Most of them want to have their own families, others prefer to concentrate on growing their career or business Ultimately, when you find yourself alone and reflect on the life you live, can you say that this life you have is what it should be?
13). Does it matter to you if you make a mark in this world?
What is it about you and what you will do that will leave that mark? The difference in living vs existing comes into play here. Some people may be able to answer this being a yes or no question. But when you dig deep in your core if you say yes, it will truly make you think of what your full response should be.
14). Why do you do the things that you do?
Is it because they make you happy? Is it for the greater good? Are you expecting good karma for it? So many questions can follow that you might not end up with a definite response.
