I suppose there would be benefits of knowing when you are going to die, like finalising your will and saying goodbye to loved ones. But I also imagine there may be a lot of fear and anxiety in the lead up to the end.

Would you want to know when you are going to die? Why or why not?

I don't think I would. I worry that I would become too obsessed with trying to prevent my death that I would forget to truly live and enjoy life.
Nope, don't want to know. Want to live my life without the knowledge of what happens in the future.
I want to be asleep in my bed. I don't particularly want to know I'm going to die.
I am a person who would love to know.
I can't quite say 'why', but I have no fear of dying...so I guess the main reason would be to do as much in my job as possible...cram-cram-cram.
My answer is similar to Lizzi, I think I would become obsessed with trying to prevent the inevitable and I'd have put actual living on 'pause' in my quest to change my fate. I'd not want to know. Instead, its about living every day as if it's your last, and loving people with your whole heart so that if you die tomorrow, they'll know you loved them.
I wouldn't want to know. I don't wish to know about anything that will happen in the future, good, bad or neutral. When life just happens one deals with it. If I knew then I would have the dilemma of whether to tell those close to me or not. The knowledge could interfere with living in the now.
I would want to know I guess, but I don't want to know 'How'. But I am sure there is a reason no one knows about it until the end.

Definitely No. I would worry. Getting things organised such as the Will is one of those jobs that is done when one is in a good frame of mind. Acknowledging we all 'go' at some time is enough for me.
Definitely NOT!

I've got enough strains, & stresses in just living day to day.

I would NOT want that added detail.
I am unsure, perhaps it is something no one really wants to know?
That is why live your life, and do something positive, help someone, be friendly, support a friend, enjoy life - you only have one and who knows how long you have it for?
