THERE’S A SU­PER-CHEAP FLIGHT SALE. HOW LIKELY ARE YOU TO TAKE AN UN­PLANNED TRIP LEAV­ING TO­MOR­ROW?

Sounds like an ad­ven­ture – I’m in! Only if I’ve been to the des­ti­na­tion be­fore – I need to know where I’m go­ing and what I’m do­ing if I’m just go­ing to head off.

No way, my trips take months of plan­ning – I need to book time off work, sort out an itin­er­ary and plan my pack­ing first.

A FRIEND SUG­GESTS DIN­NER SOME­WHERE NEW. DO YOU:

Im­me­di­ately agree and look for­ward to see­ing what the waiter rec­om­mends to eat when you get there – the mys­tery will give your taste buds a treat.

Search all the re­views and rat­ings you can find on Yelp, and plan what you're go­ing to or­der in ad­vance.

Say yes, but de­cide to just go for a drink as you don’t know if you'll like the food. You can al­ways eat last night’s left­overs when you get home.

YOU GET TO THE GYM AND FIND YOUR BODY-PUMP CLASS HAS BEEN RE­PLACED WITH ZUMBA. DO YOU:

Stick around to try it out for the first time – it could be­come your new favourite class.

Do it for 10 min­utes and leave, feel­ing su­per self-con­scious – you knew it wouldn’t be your cup of tea. Go straight home and sulk that the class sched­ule has changed with­out any warn­ing.

HOW WOULD YOU BRING SOME SPARK INTO YOUR RO­MAN­TIC RE­LA­TION­SHIP?

Run away and get hitched! There's no time like the present.

Plan a se­cret get­away.

Pur­chase some his 'n' hers slip­pers – they'll liven up our evening rou­tine.

IT’S TIME FOR A TRIP TO THE HAIR­DRESSERS AND YOU DE­CIDE TO:

Go with the flow and de­cide on a to­tally new colour when you ar­rive.

Go in with some pic­tures, but trust the stylist’s judgement.

Have the same cut you've had since you were 21 – if it works, why change it?

HOW EAS­ILY DO YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND?

As eas­ily as I change my nail colour. It all de­pends on the topic – if it’s more se­ri­ous, I need to think it through first. Never! I like to think care­fully be­fore I com­mit to a new stand­point.
