If you are told you "have to" or "must" do something, are you more likely to just do it or to resist it?

My first instinct is always to resistresistant ask why.

That depends on what and by whom is telling me, us what to do.....If it is gov. tooth and nail, community, totally different application.......what is best for the community. .....

Lol, I've never responded well to any of those phrases including 'have to' or 'must'.....well, unless it comes from my husband....then I'll do anything for him. :-)

Actually you don't have to do that if you are being murdered or if you are suicidal.

I like pleasing people for some reason so I'd most likely do it.

Depends who it is from that says it, but many times I just DO NOT like conformity, so I'll say, "I'm good".

Except for my boss, I generally will take the mentality "I don't have to do anything but die." If told I have to do something. If you ask me I'm generally pretty agreeable. I just can't stand when people tell me I must do something.

It would vary based on an individual's values, thought process, beliefs or etc. I personally for the most part would just do it if it is the right thing to do.

If I'm told i have to do something i put my head down and do it, I'm not some rebellious chav, having said that if that thing goes against my better judgement i would resist

I must ask.. I'm not familiar with the words you used...what does chav mean?

A chav is sort of like a wannabe gangsta except they are generally white and between 14 and 25 years old

If I'm asked I will do it no problem. If I'm told good luck is all I have to say. Respect and wording gets you a lot further than demands.
