Vacations and how to spend them

I believe that vacations should be a change. Most people like a change. Most people like a change of place; if they live in the country they like to go to a big town and spend their time looking at shop windows and visiting movie theaters, museums and art galleries; if they live in a city, they like a quiet vacation in the hills or by the sea, doing nothing but walking, swimming and lying in the sun. When on vacation most people don't like to do things they have to do all the year round.

 

9. Test yourself. The way one spends a vacation can tell us a lot about a person's character. If you want to find out more about yourself, answer the following questions.



1) Where do you like spending your vacation?

a) in the country b) at the seashore c) in the mountains d) at a summer camp

2) Who do you like going with?

a) your best friend b) a group of friends c) on your own d) with your family

3) What do you hate doing on vacation?

a) being alone all the time b) being in a crowd of people all the time )meeting new people every day

d)being just with your family

4) How do you like having your meals on vacation?

a) cooking your own meals b) having all the meals in the same café every day c) eating in different places every day d) going without regular meals

5) What do you enjoy doing during the day?

a) lying in the sun all day long b) swimming c) walking d) lying in bed reading

6) What do you enjoy doing in the evenings?

a) going to a disco b) listening to music on the radio c) going to symphony concerts d) having parties

 

What is your score?

A 1-a 2-b 3- 4-d
1-d 2-a 3- 4-b
1- 2-d 3-b 4-a
D 1-d 2-b 3- 4-a
E 1- 2-d 3-b 4-a
F 1-a 2-b 3- 4-d

 

Add up the number of times you score 'a', 'b' 'c' or 'd. Now work with your partner and find out what kind of person he is. If you get mainly:

1) 'a' You are shy. You find it difficult to have a lot of friends. You enjoy the arts.

2) 'b' You are serious, master of your feelings. Your head rules4 your heart, but you have a friendly
nature.

3) 'c' You are romantic and imaginative. You are kind, but you find it difficult to make a lot of
friends.

4) 'd' You are a happy person. You are impatient, but you enjoy life and its pleasures. You like to
be the center of attention.

5. Discuss the results of the test and say what kind of person you are.
