Sample Answer of Talk About a Time when You Needed to Use Your Imagination
I would like to talk about a time when I was in secondary school as a senior prefect, and I was given the assignment to find and organize a drama that will suit a seminar that will address issues related to HIV and its associated stigma. It was so challenging for me to come up with ideas stories to fit in, as at then I’ve never seen infected people talk less of how they are being stigmatized, but I needed to come up with something, ideas stories, characters that will depict the role well, it was tasking and needed a lot of brainwork transforming abstract into reality, even to get the people to display my thought was difficult due to the fact that people will have the assumption that they are carriers, but at the end of the day, it went well, and I was applauded for the marvellous job done, a lot of people approached me inquiring of how I knew about all the things done, I simply told them I imagined what it looked after consulting a lot of articles and specialist in that field and then came up with the drama. After the whole show, I felt on top of the world, so excited that up till today, I’ve never forgotten it.
Follow-ups of Talk About a Time when You Needed to Use Your Imagination
Question 1. Do you think adults can have lots of imagination?
Answer:- From my point of view, young people coming up with ideas that are not real is healthy, if they have many of them I think in my mind they tend to work towards them to actualize any of it, so I think they can and should have it for them to progress in any dream of their choice.
Question 2. Do you think imagination is necessary for scientists?
Answer:- I mentioned something like that before when I said it would help adults fulfil their dream; however, scientists need to have a picture I think their minds will work on. For instance, before the invention of the rocket, the scientist must have imagined how life would be on the moon and then how to reach there, he must have created some images in his mind on what he would have loved to do and then walked toward it, without much imagination I don’t think there would have been many breakthroughs as we have today.
Question 3. What kind of jobs need imagination?
Answer:- Those in the music and film industry will need to be forming ideas, roles and images in their mind, and those involved in the artwork too need it; as we said before, scientists, engineers, in fact, everything and everybody need to be creative in anything they do in order to push those things forward.
Question 4. What subjects are helpful for people’s imagination?
Answer:- I have never thought of that, but I think all subjects need critical thinking, and the essence of going to school is to learn skills and gather knowledge; however, those courses that require a lot of practice tends to make the students forms what they want to do in their mind and then find a way of displaying it. Those in law school may be given a scenario to work on; they simply imagine what it will look like if presented in real life then they will form a mental scenario of how he will handle it.
