No. Have you ever rearranged an entire drawer of cutleries just because one fork is out of place?

Yes, sometimes I pull the whole kitchenware drawer out and clean the inside of the drawer and organizer box too.

Do you ever get in a mood where you have absolutely nothing to say, not even any questions or opinions?

Yes, especially when I can see both sides of an argument and both are true, to a certain extent.

Do you have a keen eye for details?

No. I always like to look at the whole picture, even if I only see details...

Do you like tests of courage?

Not particularly, in the sense that I try to play whatever hand I'm dealt with equanimity, but without actively looking for trouble.

Are animals only driven by instinct?

No, with the exception of business meetings, Chicago bars, and sporting events.

Do you think with pictures or words?

Yes, in pictures. Yes, in words.

Do you know the difference between a yes-or-no-question and other questions? :tongue:

No. (Most of the time). Because mostly there is something behind the arrogance. Often it is fear, sitting behind it, or something similar.

Is browsing the web relaxing for you?

No, not at all. I enjoy cold winter sunny days or summer rain. :smile:

Do you still own an old fashioned alarm clock?

No. Did you have in the mind the wind up type or the unreliable rooster which crows at 2am? :tongue:
Do you read Sutras daily?
