What are your goals? How far are you willing to go to achieve them?
My goals are as such: to ensure the protection of my school and the students under my charge. No more, no less.
You are caught shoplifting. What do you do?
Why, I would never. That is a preposterous assumption.
How do you feel about being wrong in an argument?
Feeling is irrelevant, either you are correct or incorrect, and you must always ensure to be on the correct side of things.
Would you ever be willing to try peyote, or acid?
Of course not. A little firewhiskey around Christmas, however, is acceptable.
What is the difference between definition (of any particular thing) and application (of said thing)?
Both the definition and the application of a particular concept hold duality, and as such, the concept must be stated first and foremost.
Define the word forgiveness.
Forgiveness is not easy, but it is ease.
Someone insults you. What do you do?
I would not deign to stoop to their level.
Do you ever allow yourself to be vulnerable? If so, when?
Vulnerability is not a trait of any good headmaster.
Explain how fear affects you, and how you respond to your fears.
I gather my strength about me.
Is there value in suffering? Why or why not?
It is my duty to alleviate suffering as far as possible.
Are you more or less likely to turn your homework in on time?

Do you keep your eyes on all the exits of a room when you enter it? Explain why.

In my youth.
How do you feel about going to therapy?
Therapy can be a valuable exercise.
If all chefs have beards, and all bearded men are blue-eyed, are all blue-eyed men chefs?
Do you mean to insult my intelligence? Of course not.
If a homeless person asks you for money, do you give it to them? How about if it's your last $5?
Yes, and yes. I do not place value on material gains.
Describe how you feel toward people who hold opposing views to you.
My views are quite simple, therefore those who object are threatening.
Is revenge ever justified? If so, when?
No. Revenge is emotionally motivated.
Assuming a world without magic, what would you do if you saw someone about to be hit by a car?
Warn them. If they're unable to hear me, I would act.

My favorite author is a muggle, Lord Alfred Tennyson.
