    i'd choose b for this one simply because i am a lonely person at heart, so it wouldn't hurt me too much to be disliked and avoided by others. besides, having great skills would get me to a lot of places in life, and i could live life to its fullest that way. im a very independent person, and i dont like having to count on people, or ask people for things. i'd rather have the audacity to do many things than depend on others my whole life. you lose your sense of freedom in this way.

    I want to be like LeBron James even though he has done nothing wrong to be disliked.

    Can I pick neither?
    While affection is most important to me, I don't have room in my life for everyone, I prefer to keep a small quantity of people really close to me.

    Definitely option B. I'm already a hateful person myself, so I only see those things as a plus.

    I picked B, but I would like to switch. If everyone hates you, then no one cares how good you are at anything. If everyone loves you, then it doesn't matter how good you are at anything.

    I'd rather be adored by everyone. The second option seems far too lonely.

    I noticed a loophole in this. Since you are skilled at everything, you are also skilled at making friends, and making people love you, so you can break the system. Everyone would just hate you at first.

    Strategically, A is the better option. Your skills don't matter if you're universally despised by society. Sooner or later, someone will simply have you killed.
    But I picked B anyway, because B is for badasses. x)

    Eh with a personality like mine I really can't go for A, because I can't accept other people doing things for me without paying them back in return somehow. And while being adored does show that people love and care for you, personally it just doesn't feel right to me. I'm also the type of person that believes in "actions speak louder than words", so not being able to do anything that shows your love and appreciation for those around you would drive me nuts without a doubt. Because even if I'm hated, I want people to feel like they can rely on me for whatever they need. So even with a life of solitude, I like feeling useful to those around me so my choice is B.

    Both seem unappealing in their own way. I suppose I'd rather be adored and unskilled. I'm not someone who craves people's love and attention, I'm somewhat a loner, but I do get a lot of comfort from knowing that a few people in the world care about me and I wouldn't want that to change. I also don't think that being skilled at everything would be good, it would just mean that you would enjoy things less. Part of enjoying a talent is the feeling of working towards the final outcome. Like playing an instrument, it's not so much being able to play as it is the feeling of pride and accomplishment when you go from playing like an ape to playing like a musician xD

    If you suck at everything, you probably have no career, no girlfriend, or money. I'll go with being disliked.
