A small survey

Question 1: Are you plagued by self-doubt?
Question 1a:Do you, for virtually every decision, consider the alternatives to your initial response, or once the decision is made, wonder if it was right?

Question 2: Where on the political spectrum would you place yourself?

Question 3: Do you consider yourself smarter than the average North American?

I’ll get the party started: see the comments for my own responses, and if you’d like, add yours. You can be completely anonymous if you want too.

  1. Like you said. All 4.

    Re 1a) I have a silly habit of rereading emails sent several times after i’ve sent them, just to make sure they were ok or to agonize about their not-okness.

  3. My answers to both question 2 and 3 at the moment are, to paraphrase MIB, “A person is smart and reasonable. People are dumb, panicky and unreliable.”

    But I’m like to back whatever’s most generous and forgiving, which is normally left of centre, and I would feel bad about saying I’m smarter than average, but I have a frickin’ degree in mathematics for crying out loud! (plus a sucessful business and a great relationship – with someone more to the left and smarter than me it should be noted).

  5. 1) No, laziness and lack of motivation are my personal plagues.
    1a) No.
    2) Left. Apparently bleeding-heart liberal according to a couple of Torontonian friends.
    3) Yes
