1 - Do you ever give gifts to your loved ones without a specific reason (and therefore outside of birthdays, anniversaries, holidays)? No, why should I? Generally no, but it has happened a few times in the past Yes, I do it to repay their gifts Yes, I like giving unexpected gifts a lot! 2 - When you buy an item/product, do you choose it mainly taking into account: If itís a bargain Its overall quality The quality/price ratio 3 - Those who spend less, spend more. Whatís your opinion on this saying? Itís nonsense. Saving is fundamental I wouldnít know, but in any case I prefer to spend less In some cases it's true: a good investment can help you save in the future I agree: itís better to pay more now to not have to do it later...
4 - Do you get any pleasure when you let yourself buy something "expensive" (something that you have perhaps been waiting to be able to buy for quite some time)?
I try never to buy expensive things Not much, I feel uncomfortable and I feel guilty Yes, but I try not to overdo "expensive" purchases Yes, I experience a pleasurable feeling of freedom and satisfaction 5 - How do you feel when you receive an unexpected gift? Discomfort: sooner or later I will have to return the favour Embarrassment: I am taken aback Surprised: I didnít expect it Joy: It's nice that others remember me 6 - Not at all: the money is made to make savings Money is made to be spent. Do you agree? Not very much: you have to buy things but without overdoing it Yes, more or less: itís right to enjoy what you have earned every now and then Absolutely: living to accumulate money doesnít make sense
7 - Anonymous personage wrote: << A miser is someone who lives like a poor man for fear of poverty>> . Whatís your opinion?
I donít agree: there's nothing wrong with living thriftily A person who lives modestly is not necessarily stingy Itís reasonably true: some people lead a miserable life for no reason I totally agree: saving on everything is not living! 8 - What is the best aspect of having a certain amount of money at your disposal? Being able to put it aside Being able to pay debts
Being able to face life with greater peace of mind
Being able to do something enjoyable together with loved ones 9 - Do you ever measure the affection you give to other people depending on your expectations towards them? (i.e. if you expect a lot from a person you tend to treat them better, but if you donít expect anything, you tend to treat them with disdain)
No, never: itís not possible to level love
No, even if not everyone deserves to be loved
Yes, but only with friends and acquaintances, not family members Of course, it seems perfectly normal to me 10 - Have you ever loved someone, or to care for someone a lot, without your sentiments being returned?

I donít entirely agree, sometimes you can get more than you give I agree, although some people seem to get more than they deserve I agree completely; generosity is rewarded 12 - Do you have the habit of sharing expenses with your friends when you go out with them? (For example, the petrol, food, etc.). No, Iím absolutely indifferent to it No, but when it comes it gets expensive everyone pays their share Yes, I prefer to share expenses Yes, of course, it doesnít seem fair to pay for others!
13 - Do you ever offer something to a friend? (For example a drink, dinner, etc.)
No, I donít want people to think that I have the habit of offering things! Not usually, but it may have happened once or twice in the past Yes, but not too often Yes, I often do! 14 - Do you ever lend something to others? (e.g. CDs, DVDs, various objects) Yes, I love to share my things with friends Yes, but only people I trust Not very often, I'm pretty jealous of my things No never, I care too much about my things to lend them to others! 15 - Do you trust people easily? No, I only trust them if they prove to be people worthy of my trust Not right away, it takes a little time Yes, I trust people immediately, but I always keep my eyes open Yes, I immediately trust people completely
