     go to previous choice         Choice #22: the 6♥ card            go to next choice 


I heed my conscience to some extent and live a life of self-denial and adherence to behavioral guidelines. (Note: the origin of such guidelines, whether from work schedule, legal, marriage vow, military, financial, health, family, environmental, ethical, or religious considerations, can differ. And commitments differ. Monks and nuns commit to a life of asceticism, others to voluntary simplicity. For dieters, those battling addiction, athletes, those working a job they don’t enjoy, restraint lasts until some goal is attained.)


I often get what I want by intimidating and instilling fear, by verbally and/or physically threatening. Since this only succeeds if the threat is believable, I've got a reputation associated with verbal abuse and occasionally resorting to actual physical violence— even condoning torture! (Note: some who lack restraint use the old threat system, based on “Give it to me or I’ll hurt you” or “Pay me and I’ll quit bothering you.” A more modern approach is to file or threaten a lawsuit. Of course sometimes abandoning restraint can be justifiable.)
