What are some good questions to ask to get to know someone really well
To get to know someone really well you have to be in their shoes. It is the thought and the feelings not conveyed by the words that you want to know. When speaking with someone, you hear the inflection of their voice. When face to face with someone you look into their eyes.
The most easiest thing is to ask a question. But to ask a question to seek desired information is an art in itself.
You can ask the person his or her name.
You can ask him or her what growing up was like for him.
You can ask the person what his interests are like.
You can ask the person where he/she lives.
Although religion is not all that an easy subject for many people to discuss but you can still ask the person what his or her religious beliefs are like.
You can ask the person what his or her schooling is like or where he schooled.
You can ask the person where he/she works.
I would ask questions about family, childhood, and relationship with parents. You can tell a lot about a person when you know something about their background.
For relationship, I normally find out more about her by asking questions regarding her childhood and growing up as it will reveal about her characters.
I believe a person growing up with characters that will be hard to change therefore knowing that will help you to understand a person well enough to decide if you want to spend your life with. That is what I had gone through when I first knew my wife. I had daily phone conversation for about 4 - 6 hours in the night that lasted for a week before asking her out.
Within a month, we got married! Looking back, it has been already more than 20 years ago.
What's the situation? What is your relationship to the person you're trying to get to know well? Significant other? Friend? Boss? Colleague? Business partner? Tenant?
A. Significant other?
How do you feel about having children?
What are your views on raising children? Do you believe in strict discipline or a more open, creative, forbearing approach? And so on.
How do you spend your free time?
C. Boss (One doesn't usually ask questions of the boss, does one?)
D. Colleague (This really does depend on the enterprise you're going into to a certain extent)
What are your views about failure?
E. Business partner
Same question: What are your views about failure?
Do you have any pets?
Hope that helps. Take it easy.
One question that I often pose is:
"If you and I were the last people on Earth and had to repopulate the place, would you continue to insist that I take you to dinner before you put out for me?????"
