     go to previous choice         Choice #12: the 3♦ card            go to next choice 


If stimulated or stressed, I give away choices I’d otherwise make. I suspend thinking, narrow consciousness and passively transfer control of myself to some real or imagined authority. I put my faith and trust in, feeling obligated and beholden to, this authority. The authority is associated with a culturally agreed on expectancy behind a setting or belief system. This giving up control happens most often in settings where peer pressure to conform is strong, or involving rituals triggering trancelike behavior even hallucinations!


I value free inquiry—unconstrained by authority. I see the best way for humankind to extend knowledge and maximize understanding is by allowing individuals a maximum amount of liberty of thought, belief, questioning and inquiry. I especially value having this liberty because, unlike many, I am especially curious. I’m driven to seek out and explore new territory in pursuing intellectual rewards  I get a thrill out of acquiring new knowledge / making new connections!
