When conundrums find their way into your life, are you one to knock them aside with an iron fist, a sharp wit, or do you let them have their way with you before you proceed? i.e do you believe that problems can be solved via physical or mental means better, or is it best to simply go with the flow and let things work themselves out?

When I have a problem, I always find a way to solve it as quickly as possible. It's like challenges you meet during the course of your life. But of course some problem just needs more time to solve than others.

I try to solve the problem as best as I can, but if I can't, I ask someone to help me.

Well, I usually go into berserk or overly-sad mode before attempting to do anything. While I do think that letting out your frustration in a physical way -- so long as it doesn't end up hurting anyone -- is helpful in its own way, the mental means would be better. If you really can't do anything about it, leave it up to God and trust Him to help you.

I either attempt to solve it or just deal with it. As stupid as it is, I'm not one to ask for help, even if I do need it. I prefer keeping my problems to myself, especially if it's something personal.
I can't think of a good signature.

It depends on what sort of problem. A lot of the problems I have are not an easy fix, so its not like I can just get up and fix something, sometimes I have to get help or talk to someone and sometimes I just have to keep working at it until it's fixed.

Usually, I use my brain to solve problems. Fighting is never the answer. Since I'm not as intelligent and clever as other people are, if I fail to solve the problem, I just go with the flow and forget about it.

when there's a problem, I don't really handle it seriously... I just laugh and make sarcastic quips until I solve. When I actually solve my problem I'd yell "HA!"

Make sense? Oh, what fun is there in making sense?

I don't like dealing with things, so I usually wait and see what happens and let them sort themselves out, and only act if it's really necessary. I'm not a hands-on kind of person in my own life, I have a come-what-may attitude

Sometimes I have a bad habit of letting things get out of hand before dealing with them, but not all the time. When I'm not lazy I tend to deal with things quickly as possible as to get them over with, usually thinking up a smart way to do it first.

For me, it depends on how big the problem is, if it's small I can handle it, if it's big I'll try but if I fail or think I'll fail I'll just let it pass xD

I am always quick to solve my small problems. Less of a burden on my shoulders that way.
