20 Questions to Ask People to Get to Know Them Better

When meeting new people, especially in college, odds are you ask them the same three questions every time.

What's your name?

What's your major?

Where are you from?

Don't you hate it?

Every icebreaker is terrible because they want a fun fact about you and sometimes, or all the time, you may just not have one. What if, instead of the same questions always being asked, we asked fun ones instead?

Here are some questions for you to try out the next time you meet someone new!

What fictional place would you most like to go?

What job would you be terrible at?

What is the most annoying habit other people have?

When people come to you for help, what do they usually want help with?

What age do you wish you could permanently be?

When have you felt your biggest adrenaline rush?

What is a luxury you couldn't live without?

How often and where do you people watch?

What could you give a 40 minute presentation on without any preparation?

How different was your life one year ago?

What quirks do you have?

If you are in a bad mood, do you prefer to be left alone or have someone to cheer you up?

What's the best Halloween costume you've ever had?

What do you wish you knew more about?

What do you want your epitaph to be?

They say everyone has a book about them, what would yours be about?

What's one thing about you that surprises everybody?

Do you ever find there are things about you that people misunderstand? What are they?

Which parent are you closer to and why?

What kind of parent do you think you will be?
