Gentlemen, this is Mantelligence. Today, we’re showing you 10 of the best questions to ask to get to know someone we all know it’s not always easy getting to know someone and if you run out of things to say Many of us fall back on boring small talk questions like what do you do for work? But that’s why having a bank of thought-provoking Interesting and good questions to ask to get to know someone can be so helpful. So here are 10 of the best getting to know you questions
Question 10 in my bank of good questions to ask to get to know someone is if you could take only three items with you to a deserted island, what would they be? This is not only one of the most fun questions to ask to get to know someone, but it also helps you determine what matters most to a person Are the items they choose based off of survival are they personal and sentimental or are they both?
If they’re tactical and functional the person is likely a go-getter who cares most about getting ahead if their personal and sentimental The person probably cares a lot about the people that they love and the experiences that they’ve had So listen carefully to their items and try to determine what they say about the person and their values.
Question 9. If you had to choose to live without one of your five senses, which one would you give up? One of their five senses will be lost forever and they have to choose which one so out of their sight, hearing, taste, smell, and physical touch which sense could they bear to live without. This question can be difficult to answer because each one of those gives you important information about the world and a different way to enjoy it like seeing a beautiful view, hearing Incredible music or tasting delicious food. Now while this question is definitely thought-provoking it usually turns into a surprisingly interesting conversation.
Question 8. Another good questions to ask to get to know someone is what animal best represents you and why? When you ask this question what you’re really asking is what animal shows the most personality traits with you? For example, are they brave and family-oriented like a lion are they watchful and independent like a bald eagle or are they laid-back and friendly But also protective like a dog so instead of asking something boring like what are your personality traits? Use this comparison to animals to get to know them and who they think they are better.
Question 7. If you could have one superpower What would it be and how would you use it?
Out of any Superhuman ability which one do they want to have the most and if they got their power How would they use it? Do they want to be invisible to stay hidden while they gather information or to break the rules? Do they want to be able to fly to experience more of the world or to fulfill a sense of adventure? Or do they want to have superhuman strength to protect loved ones or to help others? No matter what power they choose this question helps you get to know the person’s innermost desires and whether those are for personal gain Adventure helping others, or maybe even doing wrong.
Question 6. If you could live in any book TV show or movie which would it be?
This question isn’t just asking what their favorite book TV show or movie is it’s really asking what lifestyle do you really want? For example would they choose the action-packed fictional life of James Bond or Jason Bourne? Would they choose the fun entertaining comedic life of the Simpsons or South Park? Or would it be a historically significant life like that of the great Gatsby By asking this question you’ll learn what lifestyle they would have if all options past present real and fictional were available to them.
Question 5. If you were on death row, what would be your final meal? What dish do they love so much, That they choose it as their last meal ever?
And more importantly why would they choose that as their final meal? would they choose their childhood favorite meal like their mother used to make? Or would they choose something extravagant that they didn’t get to have often in their life? After they answer you’ll know what one of their favorite meals is and more importantly you’ll have an idea of what type of experiences sentimental or luxurious that they value most.
Question 4. What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done? What’s the craziest most spontaneous, dangerous or adventurous thing that they’ve ever done.

Or was it dangerous or even law-breaking like jumping off of a roof or shoplifting? once they answer you’ll get to know something very important about them as a person The limit of what they are and are not comfortable doing
Question 3. If your house was burning, and you could only save one item what would it be and why?
