This time, we use a new design idea in the test: you need to participate as the main character in an amazing story - Imagine you are a college student: Recently you had a birthday, and your friends asked you to go out for a big dinner. So the story starts ......
Who do you plan to invite for the birthday feast?
Just new friends from college
Friends from college and some fellow members of school clubs

High-end hotel buffet/Japanese cuisine
How will you get to the restaurant when your birthday comes on a weekend, considering the buses and subways might be busy?
By taxi. Yeah I know it's expensive, but it's my birthday, folks! Don't judge me okay?
Welp, I will decide according to the actual situation on the day. Finger crossed for the traffic lol.
Take the bus/metro anyway. It already costs a lot of money for the birthday meal.
It turns out you have reserved the wrong date, what a bummer! Now that you have to wait about half an hour for your turn. What would you probably do?
Look for another restaurant without people waiting in line
Explain to the restaurant manager that it's my birthday today and ask if he can make an accommodation.
I would wait for our turn if everyone's okay with that.
Finally, you are seated. Everyone has come up with birthday gifts for you but John. What do you think of him?
Annoyed. Does he see me as a friend, or just want to use me?
Joke on him about this. I'll never invite him to any dinner or party.
Maybe he happens to be short of money recently? I don't really mind it.
Halfway through the dinner, the waiter suddenly comes up to you. He says you are lucky to be selected as the lucky customer today, rewarded with a free bill and a special gift. Wow! Which of the following would you choose (suppose they're all at the same value)?
A voucher for the restaurant
A premium German fountain pen
A gift card from a fancy department store
A free flight ticket to any of your favorite destination
A 30% discount coupon for a luxury merchandise
After the meal, you all walk out of the restaurant happily. Suddenly, a man rushed towards you and your companion with a dagger, saying that you had taken the gift he deserved. Out of safety concerns, you immediately gave him the gift. But he obviously had no intention of letting you go and used the dagger to try to coerce you away. How do you think he will take you to escape from the crowd?
Ride on a horse to the old town road ( Seriously? Oh, c'mon...
Ride on a Vespa scooter and leave
The man's partner drives a minivan over to take us away
Walk to the beach and jump on a yacht
By helicopter... Let's make it wild baby!
Once out of sight, you are knocked unconscious by the man with a stick. Waking up at dawn, where do you think you are most likely to be at this moment?
In the deep forest or desert
By a steep cliff side with huge waves lapping at the foot of the mountain
On a mysterious deserted island
You must be in a daze at this moment, but how would you confirm your location?
Based on sun and shadow orientation, and geographic vegetation features
As a modern human being, I have a thing called a cell phone can help me locate lol
You stand up and run to the foot of the hill and find a boat and a kayak parked on the beach, you would choose?
You wander around the island for half a day and find no one to turn to for help. What would you do?
Swim out of here no matter what.
Make a raft maybe? I really can't swim!
Before you can confirm the location and leave, the mysterious man suddenly appears by helicopter and tells you a shocking secret - it turns out that the restaurant manager is a traitor to an international crime syndicate. He escaped with the top secret of the organization and hid it somewhere. The mysterious man thought the secret was hidden in the gift but found nothing. Now he threatens you with the lives of your family and asks you to approach the restaurant manager to know the true location of the secret. Also, he promises to give you some tools to help. What would you choose?
Bulletproof van for tracking the restaurant manager
The yacht that may be used in case of escaping
Helicopter! Just like the one he took on my birthday
The mysterious man sends you back to the restaurant. When you enter the restaurant, you find the previous restaurant manager has resigned and left for days. By snooping around, you learn that he has moved overseas and is said to be a famous tourist mecca. Where do you think he could be?
Finally, you find the restaurant manager, but you hear the opposite story from his mouth. It turns out that he was an undercover police agent, but he had to run away because his identity was suspected. Unexpectedly, there are also undercover agents of criminal gangs within the police, resulting in his inability to recover his true identity. That's why he has to flee for his life. He tells you that the secret is hidden in a painting from the Louvre Museum. Which of the following paintings do you think is most likely?
Mona Lisa - Leonardo da Vinci
Liberty Leading the People - Eugène Delacroix
Madonna of Chancellor Rolin - Jan van Eyck
After leaving, you are in deep thought: with your loved ones on one side and the torment of justice on the other, you really don't know how to choose. Suddenly, the mysterious man calls and tells you that he has placed your family in a place where you can be reunited with your family after handing over the secret. And if you want, you can live there for the rest of your life in isolation. Where do you think he will hide your family?
Among a the jungle tribe in the tropical rainforest
A shabby European fishing village
On an isolated island in the Arctic Circle
You decide to find the painting first, get the secret, and then decide which side to believe. After a lot of hard work, you finally found the painting and cracked the secret. You found out that what the restaurant manager said was true. You decide to believe in justice, tell Interpol the whole story, and ask the police to rescue your family. The police suggest you escape with a fake identity for your own safety. Where would you probably go?
A Southeast Asian island
A city on the west coast of the United States
Somewhere in Eastern Africa
Finally, the police managed to rescue your family. You and your loved ones got reunited. But didn't take over the crime syndicate. Afterward, you joined the police and became a skilled agent. Then you've been planted as an undercover to trap a key person in the crime group. What type of identity would you pick to do your task?
However, the key person of the crime group had seen through your identity and shot you in your chest the moment when he got the chance. After the shot, you found that...
You survived and completed the task to take down the crime group.
You survived, failed the task, but managed to avenge your murder.
It's just a dream, the story hasn't actually happened.
END OF STORY. What're your feelings now?
I'm feeling so insecure...
The ending is so bad...
I wish there was something romantic involved in the story.
Why I had to join the police after reunited with my family? It's so illogical.
At the very beginning, how could the mysterious man take you down so easily? It's so illogical.
None of the above
