X-ray to Reveal Your Ambitions

Why do we use seemingly "silly" prompts and probes?

  1. Because you can answer them easily, unlike those commonly-used instructions (e.g. Write a "career vision statement" ).
  2. Because they get to the heart of the matter, which you may be shirking, skirting almost unconsciously.

Perspective / Point of View  :  
Can you write a "career vision statement"? If you can, maybe you should move on, instead of doing this exercise.
