No one knows what goes on in someone else’s mind, so it can be tough to know what to say or how to act around them. But by asking the right questions, you can get a better understanding of someone and build a stronger relationship with them. Here are some questions to ask someone you’re just getting to know, as well as some questions that might come up in more intimate conversations. Happy questioning!
What Are Your Hobbies and Interests Outside of Work/School?
When it comes to getting to know someone, questions about their hobbies and interests outside of work or school are essential. What sports do they like? Have they tried any new activities recently? Are there any shows they’ve been binging on? A great way to really get to know someone is by learning all the unique hobbies and interests that make them who they are. From painting and reading to cooking and coding, questions about a person’s free time activities can be an amazingly fun way to get an insight into their passions in life.
What Would Be Your Dream Vacation Destination?
If I could choose my dream vacation destination, I would be asking questions like: is the place warm or cold? Is it somewhere industrial or rural? Does it have ancient ruins or modern wonders? After careful contemplation, I’ve narrowed my choice down to one. It would have to be Costa Rica for its perfect balance of hot and cold climates, incredible wildlife and breath-taking views cut into its steep mountainous landscape. The vibrant city of San Jose promises an exciting nightlife while still maintaining its unique Caribbean charm. And with plenty of things to explore from the rainforests cushioning Arenal Volcano to the exquisite beaches hugging both coasts – it is truly a paradise for adventure seekers.
What Is Your Favorite Food/Cuisine to Eat?
My favorite food to eat is definitely Mexican cuisine. There’s so much flavor, spice, and exciting questions when it comes to food from south of the border. Do I want my tacos topped with sour cream or salsa? Should I get enchilada sauce on this burrito? The questions are endless, and I love how each dish can be intricately tailored to my tastes and preferences. When it comes to Mexican cuisine, the possibilities are endless which makes it one of my all-time favorite cuisines!
What Is Your Favorite Movie and Why Did You Like It So Much?
My all-time favorite movie is Forrest Gump. To me, it embodies the idea of being unassuming yet still capable of achieving the impossible. I absolutely love Tom Hanks’ portrayal of Forrest Gump, a simple yet endearing character who miraculously becomes successful due to his determination and resilience in the face of all life throws at him. Forrest Gump evokes questions within us such as: How do we measure success? Is it always achieved through extraordinary events or does our will to persist make a difference? It’s certainly made me think about these questions and ponder their answers.
If You Could Have Any Superpower, What Would It Be and Why?
If I could have any superpower, I’d choose the ability to read people’s minds. Imagine how helpful it could be to really understand what questions to ask someone beyond the basic questions everyone is asked. With this power, I would tap into people’s unconscious thoughts and feelings for a better understanding of who they really are and how best to approach a conversation or situation. However, it would also come with the great responsibility of not misusing the superpower because understanding another without their explicit consent is an immense violation of privacy. But I think, if used wisely, this superpower could have a positive impact on our relationships and conversations.
Who Is Your Role Model or Who Do You Look Up to and Why?”
Growing up and throughout my life, I have constantly asked questions: who do I look up to? Who is a positive role model in my life? When faced with questions like these, one person comes to mind immediately, my grandmother. My grandmother’s unwavering commitment to her faith, family, and an honest work ethic are qualities that inspire me and make her someone that I aspire to be more like. She is always willing to lend a helping hand no matter the task and serve as a sounding board when I need it. Her selfless commitment provides me with a roadmap for orienting myself within life’s challenges and successes. My grandmother is the cornerstone of support in my life, and she makes me aspire each day to practice self-love as well as loving others as she does.
