  • What's the subject, like creative writing or something?

    It is a bit confusingly worded... By "do not look ahead", could they have meant "do not read ahead"? As in you're supposed to write honestly about yourself for 10 minutes, and THEN read the second half of the question... following that with another 10 minutes of revelations?

      Maybe the idea is, that no matter how honest you are about yourself, there's always a deeper level of truth you can reveal. Or else, that perhaps the first things that come into our heads aren't necessarily the most truthful or well-considered!

    If this was all a lie why did you have me stop and continue for ten minutes. How do I know if this is a lie and you were actually telling the truth? How can I trust you?
