Inside the Actors studio 10 Questions

On Inside the Actors Studio, at the end of every workshop James Lipton asks his guests the "The Pivot Questionnaire." Which Pivot would ask on his show Bouillon de Culture many years ago. (It is based on the The Proust Questionnaire)
The Proust Questionnaire is pretty in depth, and has alot of Questions, so I'll stick to the condensed Pivot/Lipton list.

1. What is your favorite word?
2. What is your least favorite word?
3. What turns you on?
4. What turns you off?
5. What sound or noise do you love?
6. What sound or noise do you hate?
7. What is your favorite curse word?
8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
9. What profession would you not like to do?
10.If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?

I've never watched "Inside The Actor's Studio", but I am aware about his questioning format. Here are mah answers:
1. "Eternal" or "Eternity". Just sounds kind of romantic to me, for some reason.
2. "Quit". I don't know why I hate it, considering I have quit on many things.
3. Personality. It's more endearing than looks.
4. Vanity. Unless it's meant to be funny (Like Jim Sterling), then I can find something to like about it.
5. Sound of Classic Rock bands and Rock N' Roll from the 50s and 40s in some cases, up until 2000 or so.
6. When it [music] is being phoned in and it's more in it for the money and less about the art.
