what would I be like if I was the ultra-intelligent version of myself?:

I myself would be thrilled, but I doubt the people around me would be, because I'd be a know-it-all. I would go through life so much more confidently if I knew HOW to navigate the world in such a way. Ultra-intelligent me wouldn't be so afraid of the world or of other people, so I'd be a lot healthier & happier in general.


what would I be like if I just did whatever I wanted without any thought of the consequences?

I would be happy as shit, but I also doubt the people around me would be thrilled about me just doing & saying whatever I wanted, even if it does fall within the range of acceptable human behavior. If I just did whatever I want without thinking of the consequences, I would do SO MANY MORE THINGS with my life than I do. Unfortunately, I constantly overthink & do nothing as a result instead. But at least I'm staying out of trouble, right?


what would I be like if I were what I consider perfect?

I can only dream about this version of myself. She is a dream girl, a one-of-a-kind version of me that lives in some galaxy very far, far away a very long, long time from now. But if I were her? I would hope I was genuinely happy with my charmed life. I'd like to think I would be very gracious, calm, compassionate, amiable, elegant, the kind of person everyone adores and who lights up a room wherever she goes.


what would I be like if I fell in love & never fell out of it again?

Having achieved the supreme stability that is true love, I think it would be much easier for me to be the perfect self I described in the answer to the previous question. In this circumstance I would absolutely throw myself into the love I found myself enveloped within, and I doubt I would ever look back to the days before I fell in love, because I would only be thinking of the future... my future living in love.


what would I be like if I had everything my heart ever desired accessible to me within an instant?

A massive weight would be lifted off from me and I would instantly be at peace with the world, knowing that I could truly count on it when I needed it. I would then spend the rest of my life enjoying those new things, or at least enjoying them until I get bored and desire new things. But that massive weight off of my shoulders would be a significant milestone in my life that I would never forget for as long as I live.


what would I be like if I wasn't afraid of what other people think or may think about me?

I would be much more talkative and friendly and probably also belligerent depending upon the people. But I would definitely speak up more and enjoy debate if this were the case. On the other hand, I may also get more quiet with certain people if I do not wish to hear their expressions, regardless of what they think of me.


what would I be like if I knew I really was the Universe's favorite human ever?

I would be so unbelievably happy, confident, and successful if this were the case. This is one of those dreams that feel too good to ever be true, but if I really were to believe this... my life would be so, so different, in such a good way. It would be like living in Heaven.


what would I be like if I chose to go down a really dark path just because?

In this case I think that a large part of me that I tend to keep buried very deeply would be very happy with me making such a decision. That part of me, after having been denied for many years, would suddenly find itself feeling satisfied, empowered, and incredibly eager for life experience. I would be such a scary person, I'd even scare myself. If I chose to go down a really dark path just for the hell of it, I would probably become very sombre, quiet, calculating, manipulative, ambitious, sadistic, uncaring, aggressive and belligerent.


what would I be like if I lived only for others, and also if I lived only for myself?

If I lived only for others, I would be a very compassionate, soft, friendly, masochistic, and extremely social, traveling the country to help those in need. Despite this I would still be a force to be reckoned with, as I would undoubtedly have to navigate dangerous social landscapes at times. If I lived only for myself I would be very aloof, selfish, occasionally rude and/or aggressive, indifferent to the plights of others, devoted to hedonism, and I would probably have a lot more money then, too. In both scenarios I would probably still be depressed, as well.


what would I be like if I were born into a different family?

The answer to this question would obviously depend upon the family I found myself born into, but I'd like to think if I was born into a strong, happy & supportive family that I'd be a lot healthier, happier and more capable than I am now. I'd like to think I'd still be in contact with that family well into my adulthood. What a lovely dream, that will only remain a dream.


what would I be like if I knew the secrets of the Universe?

Well, then I would definitely become a teacher in this case. I would definitely become a know-it-all and probably fairly haughty, but all in the spirit of educating people on the truth to the best of my ability. The other possibility is that I go mad & wander off alone into the wilderness, but let's go with that first option instead.


what would I be like if I remembered every lifetime that I have lived before?

In this case I'd probably become a know-it-all, but I imagine I'd also be pretty laid back & pleasure-seeking. With that much life experience memory available to me, I'd probably become rather courageous and do all sorts of wonderful things I wouldn't otherwise do without that courage. The other possibility is that I go mad & wander off alone into the wilderness, but let's go with that first option instead.


what would I be like if I had everything figured out?

Wouldn't I like to know. Well, I'd probably be a lot more strategic and disciplined with my life if I had everything figured out... or there's the very real possibility of me still being too lazy to carry out any plans or apply any knowledge I had figured out. But I'd like to think that having everything figured out would motivate me to greatness more than anything else.


what would I be like if I learned to leave things behind in pursuit of new experiences?

I would probably be on the move all the time in this case. I honestly would probably pursue the van-dwelling lifestyle I have dreamed about for years, because I would always be on the hunt for newer, grander experiences, and that's the only way I'd be able to travel with my income level.
