Understand your Value system...

Try this game:

Read the following story. Rank the 5 characters from 1-5. 1 being the person you like most and 5 being the person you like least...

"There was once a woman named Mei Ling who was in love with a man named Ah Seng. Ah Seng lived on the shore of a river. Mei Ling lived on the opposite shore of the river. The river which separated the two lovers was full of man eating crocodiles.

Mei Ling wanted to cross the river to be with Ah Seng. Unfortunately, the bridge had been washed out. So she went to ask John, the river boat captain, to take her across. He said he would be glad to if she would spend the night with him. She promptly refused and went to a friend named Boon Teck to explain her plight. Boon Teck said he did not want to be involved at all in the situation.

Mei Ling felt her only alternative was to accept John's terms. She spent the night with him and he then fulfilled his promise and took her across the river to be with Ah Seng.

When she told Ah Seng about what happened, Ah Seng cast her aside. Mei Ling turned to Tom with her tale of woe. Tom then sought out Ah Seng and gave him a good blow which sent him into the River.".


All the characters have a good value and counter value. By choosing the sequence will be able to identify which value is more important to you... I'd tried it with many people and trust me, everyone have a different sequence...

Adrain, I agree with you that each has some kind of value and each has one of the values of insurance agents .
They exploit like John, compromise like the girl, greedy and not understanding like Ah Seng and no fact finding like the one who punched Ah Seng.

Adrain, it looks like the day ahead is going to be bright for honest financial planner like you.
The new MAS consultation paper is addressing many issues of unethical practices by insurance agents who push products and removal of commission is one of them.
jia you, adrain.
