Being different from others often requires both courage and conviction on your beliefs. Describe a time in your life where you had to make an important decision but your opinion or viewpoint differed from others. Some things to think about as you write your response:
A. How did you manage the process to come to the ultimate decision
B. Did you focus on building a consensus, just arguing your viewpoint, or both
C. Did your decision end up being the best one in hindsight. If it wasn’t, what did you learn? If it was, how did others react to you afterwards.
