Tips and Tricks
Knowing what questions to ask is one thing but knowing how to ask them and how to carry the conversation along is another. Because these questions are so deep in nature, they have a chance of going horribly wrong if not asked well. This is why we have some tips and tricks for you to keep in mind when asking people these questions.
Do not dwell in the past: Do not use these questions to dig into the past life of someone, especially when they don’t want to. Use them well.
Do not be forceful: If someone does not feel like answering your question, do not force them to answer it. There may be deep and dark reasons behind them which are best left alone.
Be prepared with your answers: As is the case with most kinds of question and conversations, the questions you ask will most definitely be asked back to you. So be prepared to give an answer. But for the most authentic experience try not to prepare your answer from before. Ride the flow and answer accordingly.
Be compassionate: A lot of these questions possess an emotional backdrop and even other questions can lead to emotional stories and experiences. Be compassionate to the other person, respect their feelings, and lend them your ears for their stories, and your shoulder for their head.
The best part about these questions is that while they are categorized into 3 categories, you can ask most of those questions to most people by changing the words a little bit. This helps you in striking up a deep conversation with your other friends or even your crush. Make sure you do not start asking these questions one after the other like a quiz show or mechanically like an interview. A deep conversation can perform miracles when executed well.
