SCIENTIST

SCIENTIST

You either have a strong scientific background or you've been watching the HBO mini series very closely. It sounds like you know your facts and your thermodynamics very well and have you been unfortunate enough to be anywhere near the disaster zone you would be of great help putting your skill to use to solve the crisis. Would you have taken a dangerous, subversive stand against the government? That's for you to say.

CIVILIAN

CIVILIAN

Whether you are an artist, a teacher or an accountant, it seems like you wouldn't have found yourself on the team working to minimize the damage caused by the nuclear plant disaster. The hardest thing for the out-of-the-loop civilian majority at times like these would be to see through the disinformation spread by the government and save themselves and those dear to them! We are sure you would have done just that.

GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL

GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL

Hello, politician. We hope that you were on the right side there at Chernobyl. Talented strategists who hold public posts also hold great power over millions of lives. It sounds like you have quite the leadership experience and that were you at Chernobyl you might have played a key part in the way the crisis was treated. We only hope you would challenge the disinformation of the public and the delayed evacuation of civilians.

MINER

MINER

You are a person of action and physicality. Seeing practical results of your hard work at the end of the day means a lot to you. You are quite fearless when it comes to heights and depths, claustrophobia is no match for your devotion and teamwork is your middle name. You could easily find yourself on the team of miners who took it upon themselves to dig tunnels under the burning core of the reactor. Maybe even naked!

FIREFIGHTER

FIREFIGHTER

You are basically super hero material, so it's no wonder that you probably would have stormed the burning reactor alongside your brave firefighting friends. You laugh in the face of danger and saving innocent people is what you do, or at least would love to be doing for a living. You would do well to remember that even though we admire your courage, governments may abuse your devotion, which can sometimes be blind.
