You would not be lying if you said that sometimes, hanging out with your friends and taking pictures can get boring if you run out of topics to talk about. And we understand that. Not all of us are great when it comes to jumping in and rescuing a conversation every time. Moreover, let’s say you recently made a friend, and you want to know them deeply, or take some time to figure their values, beliefs and ideologies. In such a case, asking these questions would not only aid you to take the conversation forward, it would also be a huge help to know a person better, by making them think and reflect on hypothetical scenarios.
Such questions are mostly based on a person’s living experience, and it is then drawn from their experiences. Hypothetical questions have its origin from a person’s personal beliefs, opinions, suppositions and conjectures and thus, they can never be based on reality. Mostly they are imaginary scenarios, that pushes a person to reflect on something that is completely topsy turvy. This way, they not only enhance their imaginary skills, but also lets the other person know the kind of thought process they engage in. Enough with the small talk, let us dive right in for the questions!
