    I think step one would be freaking out and/or crying. Step two would be looking around and trying to figure out where I was and if anyone else was around.

    I would definitely start by asking questions. I would want to know everything about where I was, who I was, what's going on, who are the people around me, etc. etc. Then, I would try not to get myself killed, because if I woke up in a box with no memories, I would definitely think that something was up and I should be worried. Finally, I would spend any extra time I had trying to remember who I was.

    first i do nothing just sit waiting for my mind to react for i don't know maybe 5 minutes, then i'll check my pockets for some clue to see if i have something that tells me who am I? what am i doing there? or if i'm the only one there?

    That's a really good question! I feel like imagining that I didn't know who I was makes this question even more difficult… my sense of self and my past experiences influences everything I do.

    So, with that in mind, I think I would be struck with a need to find out who I was and what I was doing there. I would probably stay exactly where I was for awhile urging my memories to come back. And then I would look at my self for any clues I could gain. Look at my hands. My clothes. Is my hair long or short? Am I dirty? Am I hungry? I would try to start piecing it all together… And then I would start to inspect the box.

    Before anything, I would panic and search my memory frantically. Perhaps cry a little, mostly in frustration at my inability to recall anything.

    I would instinctively run around the box and look for any other people or things to help me figure our what's going on. And then I would feel even worse because I should have just stayed where I was and moved about more quietly/stealthily in case there were dangers about (instead of freaking out).

    I would most likely scream. Then I would try as hard as I could to remember, anything. Then I would notice that I was in a box, and suddenly become clausterphobic, even though I have never been before (but I wouldn't know that, would I?) and try to beat myself out.

    And then, I admit it, I would most likely cry. As soon as I heard the box stop, I would try to stop, though.

    But most of all, I would be entirely freaked out.

    Well, I think before moving around and discovering where I am, I would just sit there very numbly trying to figure out what has happened to me and why. I'm very based on logic and what my mind tells me, so first I'd try to find a solution for my situation theoretically. I guess it would take me quite some time until I'd realize it wouldn't work out that way.

    My first thought is, that if I woke up in a box at all I'd probably scream my head off until I went hoarse. My question back is this, if you lost your memory, then how would you know you even lost it? I mean, how can you realize that part of your memory is gone if you don't remember it?

    Well, first I would probably say “Hello?” even though, I'm assuming, no one is there. I would then scream for help. After screaming myself hoarse, I would probably sit in stunned silence a while, then break down, curl up into a ball, and cry. Then I would probably try to find a way out. Honestly, if there wasn't a way out, I'm not sure what I would do next.

I would also check my pockets for any sort of personal effects, hoping for a cellphone or something useful. Then I would walk in one direction until I couldn't or I found a person. *nods* (I would also start freaking out at some point in this list)

Make sure I stay away from everyone to keep myself from danger. This would indeed be a very scary situation, so here's to hoping that does not ever happen! :))

    With no memory, I wouldn't be like Thomas (though I haven't finished the book) because there's no way I'd run into that maze after what happened to Ben…I would probably be walking the perimeter, scouring every corner trying to figure out how this entire place is keeping me contained. All the while I'll probably be ignoring everyone trying to talk to me.

    If I found myself in a box with only the memory of my name, I would probably attack the first person I would see. I admit, it is very stupid. But I would most likely be an idiot because I am one and you cannot lose idioticness with amnesia. Then people would shun me. I will soon die a tragic antisocial life. This is the amazing story of my short amnesiac life.
