1. Expected Possible Selves.

You may have answered this question before if you did the survey a couple of years ago but your expectations may have changed. We all expect to be around for many years into old age and we expect many things to happen to us in the future - both good and bad. Some of us may have a large number of Expected Possible Selves in mind for the future while others may have only a few.

Think for a minute or two about your future now that you are a young adult. Write down what you expect to be doing in the future. It's important that you talk about what you expect, not what you hope. That's the next section in the survey.

In the space below, please list as many as you can of the possible selves that you expect to become in the future (Not what you hope to become).
