"I guess that makes sense."

"Someone will likely want to study the distribution of psychological tendencies in other populations, observe if they differ from ours - I suspect they may."

She checks her tablet, briefly.

Permalink

"Not really my field."

Permalink

"What is your field?"

Permalink

"Don't super have one. I've always been a bit of a drifter."

Permalink

What is her world like in greater generality?

Permalink

"Don't know how to summarize that. Full of people. They're people."

Permalink

From the reading she's done she can form and select from some more specific questions. And will, as asked, use one at a time.

Is it all united and governed together, or are there multiple polities?

Permalink

"Lots of different polities. Hundreds, I think, over the one planet."

Permalink

What tends to distinguish them?

Permalink

"How people get into power, how they're removed from power, who can get power, term limits, and then stuff like economic policies and how much liberty they give people, I guess."

Permalink

Is this a case where different people prefer different circumstances and so many circumstances are available, or something else? (she's read about and is aware of the concept of multiple polities for historical reasons).

Permalink

"We don't have open borders like that. Most people live where they were born."

Permalink

"I traveled more than typical."

Permalink

More ability to, or just more interest?

Permalink

"Both."

Permalink

"Which abilities?"

Permalink

"Money. Lack of a job or family tying me down."

Permalink

How did she acquire money? (Her own society does not do money in the way she has the impression some others do. She has some historical stories and some information from reading, but she's interested in a little more, and what a person could provide.)

Permalink

"I had skills most don't, and would take risks most wouldn't, in a field with a high payout potential."

Permalink

"Can deleting services be sold, or was this a different field and set of skills?"

Permalink

"Some people sell deletions, yes. I did that only rarely - my main field lay elsewhere."

Permalink

She glances at the ceiling, then shrugs. "I was a hitman for a while."
