When faced with difficulty, some people ask others for advice, while
other people try to overcome difficulty on their own.
Which do you think is better?
State your opinion including specific reasons.

I think that overcoming difficulty by asking others for advice is better for two reasons.
Firstly, other people can give you some fresh advice from different perspectives.
Especially those who are close to you are likely to give you high quality advice and solutions
because they know well about your character and circumstances.
Secondly, speed is crucial.
When you want to overcome a difficulty, it's often pressing.
For example, when you face a difficult problem while fielding complaints from customers,
you should get advice from your seniors as soon as possible.
By doing this, you can make your response faster and more efficient.

Which would you like to have, a good life or a successful life?
Tell me the reason.

Personally, I would like to have a good life.
Because I think a good life is a happy life and a good life is a kind of successful life, too.
But, actually, a successful life is not always a good life.
For example, how about Michael Jackson?
His life must be successful but at least I don't want to die of excessive dependence on narcotics.

Do you believe in fortune telling?
Why or why not?

I do not believe in fortune telling at all.
I'll take a typical example in relation to horoscope based on a birthday.
Actually, I specifically know four persons who were born on the same day
of the same year and the four are leading completely different lives.
Simply speaking, it's extremely unnatural that those who were born
on the same day all over the world will have the same good luck and
the same bad luck throughout their lives.
