How do you do it?
When you’re getting to know someone, do you tend to ask them light questions or do you go for deeper questions to get a feel of their psyche? In a Reddit forum, both women and men gave their opinions on the types of questions one should ask when going to know someone. A psychologist put her two cents in and explained that it isn’t about the “what” questions but “how” you ask them.
“There is a nice and quite easy circle questioning technique called socratic dialogue. This will provide you not only with their answer to a specific question but lets you have an insight into the way a person comes to their conclusions, which says a lot more about a person than a simple answer. Plus: It’s a great way of discussing universal yet subjective questions such as: ‘what is love (I know you’re singing the rest of the song in your head right now)’ or ‘what does trust mean?’. Try it. It’s fun.”
