A simple test of your honesty
This test only has one question, but it's a very important one. By giving an
honest answer, you will discover where you stand morally. The test features
an unlikely, completely fictional situation in which you will have to make a
decision. Remember that your answer needs to be honest, yet spontaneous.
Please scroll down slowly and give due consideration to each line.
You are in Florida, Miami to be specific. There is chaos all around you
caused by a hurricane with severe flooding. This is a flood of biblical
proportions. You are a photojournalist working for a major newspaper, and
you're caught in the middle of this epic disaster.The situation is nearly
hopeless. You're trying to shoot career-making photos. There are houses and
people swirling around you, some disappearing under the water. Natur e is
unleashing all of its destructive fury.
Suddenly you see a man in the water. He is fighting for his life, trying not
to be taken down with the debris. You move closer. Somehow the man looks
familiar. You suddenly realize who it is. It's Jesse Jackson!
At the same time you notice that the raging waters are about to take him
under forever. You have two options; you can save the life of Jesse
Jackson, or you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize- winning photo,
documenting the death of one of the world's most powerful politicians.
Here's the question, and please give an honest answer:
Would you select high contrast color film, or would you go with the classic
simplicity of black and white?
