Best Questions to Ask to Get to Deeply Know Someone

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.”
