Therefore, choosing the wearing nice things to show worth is the politically less damaging choice.
I've probably got it wrong....LOL

"It is important to have nice things so people know how successful you are"
-This is the answer they want. They want to hire people who want to own "nice things", which to them implies people who want to work hard and get ahead in life.
I guess they don't see the irony, there.
You are being forced to lie, and tell yourself that you're a consumerist whore.
That's the american way. The trick is to not fall for it. Make the lie, but make it consciously- your "public" face is a lie. We all wear masks, after all. We don't have much of a choice.

Since I seem to be pissing you off so much, how do I complete an ONLINE application which requires me to complete the assessment without actually completing the assessment? The only option is to not complete the assessment and thereby decline to complete and submit the application. So, how do I do it?
I'm truly sorry someone pissed in your cheerios this morning but that is still no excuse to attack and undermine the intelligence of other members and, I believe, against the general decorum set forth by this lovely forum.
