  • What personal characteristics are most important to you in a Presidential candidate and why?
  • Some psychologists say all families are dysfunction to a degree. What makes your family dysfunctional?
  • If you could be a living advertisement for any product or company, what product or company would you choose?
  • Nike has “Just Do It.” Larry the Cable Guys has, “Git-R-Done!” What is your life motto?

Sounds like fun, right?
