on a dating show,an tian,an American-born Chinese,was almost ready to pick up one of the last two females contestants when he posed his final question:t"what would you do if you won $10 million in the lottery?""i want to take my mother and go traveling;have her quit her job,"said one of the women,while the other replied:"i won't change anything.i'd go on with my life as it is."on hearing the response,an frowned and seeming to everyone's surprise,he decided leave the stage alone.apparently,both of answer were not good enough for him. on his departure,he revealed the answer he was looking for was to use the money to set up a charitable fund.he thought the two female have a little selffish.he has a different value opinion with the two female. when i saw the words,i very angry and surprised.can one question really be enough to judge whether a person possess morality or is just self-centered?what's your opinion?share with me !

Well If I were him, I'd pick the first girl. I don't think her answer is selfish as she is thinking of her mother, not just herself. I think she displayed a good trait by being a loving daughter. Plus, I don't think $10M will be gone after her trip. You still can't tell what she would do with the remaining money with only that single answer. Who knows, she might even give some for charity. At least she was HONEST with what she wants to do. I think that guy is too closed minded. He failed to see other good traits just because he has already set up his mind to the answer. If that's the case why ask at all if he won't accept the answer.

Hmm... I see your point. I think he was too quick to judge based only on an answer to one question. He was expecting a particular answer and when that was not what he got, he jumped to conclude that the women were selfish. But actually, if you look at the answer of the first woman... take her mother and go travelling. I do not see that as a selfish thing. That is wanting to do something for (and with) your mother, the person who brought you into this world and brought you up... As for the other woman, what does she do with her life anyway? What if what she does is helping people? Spending a few minutes with people and hearing a few statements they make gives you only an impression of that person. To actually know them takes more time...

I think all of them are selfish in their own ways. They expected that the other people would "sacrifice" their true desires for the realization of the others person's wish. But that's not what happened. All the three of them have different desires than the rest. Not two minds have met. The guy was disappointed that both girls did not want to spend the money to build a charity. It means that he wanted the girls to "think" the way he thinks..not give them freewill. The girls could not have known what the guy wanted. They answered the question as honestly as they could.

anyone is unique.no matter himself or herself,idears or faith.even if two people have many similar,but they are not able to have complete same opinion on everything.the chace is very less.it hardly happens.just like your said,not two minds have met.so the guy leave alone.

he shouldnt judge those women based on their answer to that. even if you wanted to create a foundation. a lot of people dont believe in charity foundations. a lot of people refuse to donate money bcs they are not sure if it goes to the right destination or not. if i won that money i would help a lot of people but without create a foundation. i would travel and would visit poor people and would give food and toys and some things they needed in secret. at least that way is for sure that im helping them. if you have a foundation you need to hire people and not everyone is serious. so i rather help in my own way. the response of the first woman isnt that bad. she loves her mother much so he should maybe give her a chance to know her better^^

The person is judgmental because he thought that the answers of the two girls to the last question can already mirror the girls' conviction on certain things. He is selfish himself on his line of thoughts. If one wants to assess a person, a series of questions concerning one's convictions in life could have been prepared just like when a student is being evaluated. The student has to undergo a lot of tests and his class recitation,quizzes, long test and others are being considered. In the case of these gi rls, they should have answered more questions that would somehow bare their true selves on morality, charitable instincts and other good values. This way, it would be more fair and generally accepted for everyone.
