Can you help me understand this History question?

INTELLECTUAL AUTOBIOGRAPHY–

“For the philosophy which is so important in each of us is not a technical matter; it is our more or less dumb sense of what life honestly and deeply means. It is only partly got from books. It is our individual way of just seeing and feeling the total push and pressure of the cosmos.”
— William James

During the course of the quarter please compile your own intellectual autobiography–your own sense of what “life honestly and deeply means.” How have ideas shaped your real life? Do you believe in a God? Organized religion? Free will? Predestination? The power of science and rational thought? Where did you get these ideas? How different are your ideas about the meaning of life from those of your parents. Explain.

Autobiography

I’m trying to study for my Art & Design course and I need some help to understand this question.

Students are asked to reflect on how they have become who they are and compose a brief but well-organized autobiography. We are not looking for a chronological history of your life, but rather an analytical and reflective review of the influences and factors which have shaped who you are.

Some questions to consider exploring include: What is your family history? What are your family traditions and customs? How have these factors influenced your life and perceptions of leadership? When was the first time you realized your leadership potential? Who and what experiences have influenced your values and philosophies? How have mentors and critical incidents in your life transformed you?

At least 3 pages and need some references.
