    1. don't make 10 threads for one set of questions, especially if half of them don't actually make sense

    2. if you're not able to think of anything for any of 10+ questions maybe you shouldn't be applying for the job

    As for the questions, many of these are about your own personal experience of doing something so that isn't anything anyone else can help you with. If you try and use someone else's example in an application you will only screw yourself over when they ask a follow up question you can't answer.

    Several others are common sense (e.g. how to make sure work is high quality).

    There's a couple of questions on there that it would be reasonable to ask for help with (i.e. practical stuff like how to help a patient with anxiety) from someone who has more experience, however it's always a good idea to think of your own ideas first and ask for feedback. Perhaps you should have a think about your application yourself before asking loads of questions and you might get more responses.
