Questions to get to know someone: Do you find someone really intriguing? Or do you crave to start a conversation with that cute girl in your class? Or you find that guy very attractive but you do not have the right questions to ask so that you can come to know about him? You want to do all of that but sometimes you just do not have words to express yourself. You have questions that might be very foolish for the person you would be talking to for the first time. You cannot learn the ability to talk to someone for the first time from your textbooks. For this, you have to read and research about personality development and refer to tips. Here are few such tips that you can actually use to start a constructive conversation with a person and you can get to know more about them.
Here is one of the prime questions that you can ask so that you can know the nature of a person. You can ask them where would their solo vacation be. If a person says the name of a place known for partying, hitting pubs and bars or bar hopping, that person is an extrovert and would spend his time enjoying with other people rather than spending time alone. If they say a name of the place that is super nature-friendly, you will be able to know that person is a deep thinker and likes to spend time alone maybe wandering and treading unknown paths or reading a book in his attic with his gramophone on.
You can ask the person about the clothing they would prefer. If the answer is a plain shirt and pants, the ideas in their mind are clear and they possess a stable mind. If they say that they’d prefer polo and a pair of jeans, you can easily know that the person likes activeness in their life and you both could go to a movie theater or a pub the following evening. If they think that funky clothes suit them the best, they are of an artistic mind. They’d rather buy a side bag with an abstract design for their laptops rather than a black leather bag. You can then know how to talk to that person.
You can also ask a few mainstream questions but very helpful ones. You can ask them if they’d want a free travel or a thousand dollars. If they choose free travel, you can conclude that person values experience more than money. And if the person insists on money, he is either a wealthy businessman or a young entrepreneur.
These three questions will help you recognize the person and few priorities in life. If you ask the right questions at the right time, you get close to a person. Skip the small part, always aim at some constructive talk.
