use the word "one" like "one may think" or "through one's eyes" any time you want to say I, use the word one! =)

Definition: inflicting terror in order to influence non-democratically Causes: government ignoring problems, either locally, nationally or globally; minority groups wishing to enforce their opinions/beliefs on the general population Effects: death, destruction, financial impact Examples: IRA vs UK in order to gain 'freedom' for the people in Northern Ireland (no success, reverted to politics); animal rights attempting to ban animal testing (partial success - ban on testing for cosmetics); 9-11/Madrid/7-7 (ongoing)

Don't put your opinion in-just use facts. For example: I think that Piaget and Erikson were amazing people. They helped discover things about psychology that I believe benefited everyone. In this essay, I will further explain Piaget and Erikson. versus Piaget and Erikson benefited child psychology extremely. They realized things no other psychologist realized and have helped psychologists with their practice today. I don't even know anything about Piaget and Erikson, so please don't use either of the above two introductory paragraphs. haha

Since this is not a personal essay, you should be able to write 1000 words without using the 1st person singular of the future tense. And even if you absolutely can't work around it, you can always use 'I shall' instead of 'I will.' Sneaky, but apparently legal according to your rules. Regarding 'I think': since this is not a personal essay, you should have not cause to offer any opinions. If you have occasion to do so, simply state your assertion as fact-which, by the way, makes your argumentation more cogent. 'I think' implies that you don't have complete confidence in what you are saying.

Very possible. Research papers aren't about your opinion, they're about analysis and use of primary and secondary sources. Just write the information and talk about what it means. You'll find it's really fairly simple.

Look a little harder - I bet you do! You don't have to be CEO of a Fortune 500 company or anything. Do you organize the family get together, or a group of friends going to the movies? That's leadership! You may not lead the group at work on every project, but hasn't there been some time that you did step up and say, hey we ought to do it this way, and that was the best idea, so that's what they did. That's leadership! This type question is about putting your best foot forward, and being able to articulate how you will be able to do a good job at whatever it is that you are applying for.
