To better simulate real-life romantic situations, Vicary employed an unconventional study tool: “Choose Your Own Adventure” books, a young-adult series that allows readers to make critical plot decisions—will the main character fight off the zombies on her own, for example, or run for help? Vicary adapted the book’s interactive formula to create a “Choose Your Own Relationship” narrative, where study participants could make decisions about how to interact with their partner—would they break off the relationship when it starts getting serious or sit down and talk about it? Support the boyfriend when his family’s dog dies, or expect him to man up and quit whining?

Mine's on the "secure" quadrant.

I know that I shouldn't worry too much about everything, as worry will slowly eat away at my sanity.

But I can also be discerning in critical situations when the signs of something bad rear their ugly heads.
Korina Sanchez: Ex-sensei Mel, we've met again.
Mel Tiangco: I'm expecting this from my former student.
Korina Sanchez: I know all along the reason for your presence.
Mel Tiangco: Of course. Your hairbrush.
Korina Sanchez: Snatch it again? Well, you're mistaken. It's because my hairbrush's container is packed with security features. What's your say?
Mel Tiangco: If you can do security... (pause) then 120% of my strength will shatter it!
