What about: "Why or why not? What kind of law would you like to practice?"

Lol isn't the point of this to help you figure out what to do?  I'm happy :)

I've alway been a trailblazer so I can adjust, temporarily, to the regiment until I have the skills to go solo and build something great.

I'm very analytical and have a strong business/finance background.  This will be helpful for a career in t&e, tax, insurance or real estate law.

No, I was interested in hearing from others too! Nothing like a little community analysis.

I think I'm somewhere between law-lovers and Opto. I enjoy learning about the law and knowing the law, but a lot of times I don't see it doing anything good for anyone and I become bored with it.

It's a big game to me.  That's why I love it.  It's like high-stakes chess.

The law is a waste of my time and it's very boring.

But these are people's lives and businesses, not pawns and knights. The stakes, as you note, are too high to have a "big game" attitude about this.

Maybe if you don't play to win.  I hate to lose.

Touche. [imagine an accent aigu over the e]
I always play to loose.  You never have to live under the pressure of success, and high expectations.

I like to be able to look back and say it can't get any worse than that... or can it?
