"We know what we are but not what we may be." (Ophelia, in Hamlet)
The first in a series of personal transformation books, Imagine You Are: Personality Tests About Friendships with Moral and Ethical Dilemmas uses philosophy, psychology ,and everyday situations as an innovative exploration of self and self-knowledge. It gives the listener an opportunity to understand the whys and wherefores of dealing with a complex situation that often involves a mental conflict between moral imperatives, in which to obey one option would result in transgressing another option. It argues that our sense of who we are is an ever-changing response to the world of interpersonal experience, an essential project that is always subject to revision and change.
Every day we overlook the enormous power of situations in our lives. We fail to appreciate that life’s basic details - where we are, whom we’re with, and even whether we won or lost a spelling contest 20 years ago - affect how we think and act.
In this collection of common everyday scenarios, you’ll imagine yourself as a cast member in a scene. Each scene addresses a distinct aspect of the human persona: creativity, emotional stability, strong-mindedness, honesty, sociability and more. Next, you’ll be asked to choose how you would handle the situation. Of course, there are no right or wrong answers - just revelations about the person you are. After you answer the questions, you’ll find comments of a qualified psychologist that will help you interpret your answers with practical explanations.
More than psychology testing, more than another self-help volume, this book appeals to fans of puzzle and logic games. It’s a fun listen, and you just might find out who you really are.
True friends share our lives: the good times, bad times and all the in-between. Our friends can be more or less close, and more or less trustworthy, more or less supportive. Our relationships greatly depend on our expectations of friendship in general. Imagine You Are: Personality Tests About Friendships with Moral and Ethical Dilemmas will help you find out what friendship means to you.
