  1. Tell Us What You Think

YTEL-70 [T45832.00]Section: Tell Us What You Think

To finish up our interview today, I'll ask you some different kinds of questions that may give you a chance to tell me more about your life and how you think about things.


Here is a ladder representing the "ladder of life." Let's suppose the top of the ladder represents the best possible life for you; and the bottom, the worst possible life for you. On which step of the ladder do you feel you personally stand at the present time? Zero is the worst possible life and 10 is the best possible life.
