Assessment Illustrative quote(s)
Positive I want to decide about my life myself, at least I want to, as long as I can. DBM6
And again, it is important for me to emphasise, it is more important to help others than myself. DBM8
Negative I just don’t like to commit myself in advance. DBW7
Not sure/ ambivalent Partly it is certainly something good, but as we were saying you do not know what will be in a few years, what the situation will be like. DBM3
