a.) Be amazingly talented in the skill of your choice (instrumental prodigy, chess master, mathematical genius) and become wildly famous and well known throughout the world? You would fall in love with your all-consuming talent and be famous after your death, but your talent would severely impair your ability to have relationships with other people. You wouldn't have any close friends, and you probably would never marry.
b.) Or, would you rather be a normal person, enjoy a normal life with friendships and most likely marriage, but have absolutely no outstanding characteristics, and fall into obscurity after dying?
2.) Do you have to ability to be civil to people you can't stand? What are the limits of this civility? If you knew you would have to endure a person you can't stand in close proximites on a near daily basis, how would you handle it?
