What two questions would you ask to get the most information about who a person truly is?

MrsTerryPratcett Thu 07-Mar-19 03:29:14

There aren't. Because it's what a person does, not what they say, that counts.

I'd see how they treat a person that needs help, and how they treat a person they have power over.

Agree with MrsTerryPratcett although I wouldn't have had the sense to work it out! <Wondering as always why said poster changed spelling of her username it wasn't always thus, was it? Sorry, just nosy>

Can't put it any better than MrsT!

Justagirlwholovesaboy Thu 07-Mar-19 03:50:26

Oh damn maybe this has gone too deep!

Bloodybridget Thu 07-Mar-19 03:51:44

Well, what do you think, Justagirl?

Justagirlwholovesaboy Thu 07-Mar-19 04:10:51

I was thinking along the lines of “do you like game of thrones” and “do you like pizza” 😂

How they treat animals and people who have made a mistake

Justagirlwholovesaboy Thu 07-Mar-19 04:26:26

Ok this has gone terribly wrong!!

TurtleCavalryIsSeriousShit Thu 07-Mar-19 05:55:08

This has made me laugh grin Sorry.

MrsT is obviously right, but I can also tell a lot about a person if they like Game of Thrones or pizza grin.

I'd probably ask if they like cats. If someone doesn't mind them, then fine, but if they outright hate them, I won't even try to be friends.

If they like Brass Eye and Peep Show they are generally OK people I find.

JenMumma Thu 07-Mar-19 09:02:24

If ask them which two questions THEY would ask 😉

JenMumma Thu 07-Mar-19 09:02:36

I'd *

1. Are you a dog or a cat lover?
2. Would you spend an unexpected windfall on a holiday or save it?

pinkrockinghorse Thu 07-Mar-19 09:38:29

1. How do you spend most of your time?
2. Why?

Booboostwo Thu 07-Mar-19 09:47:58

1. Can you define philosophy?
2. Why would you start a thread about it?

MrsTerryPratcett Thu 07-Mar-19 12:05:58

I'm clearly taking things too seriously!

1. Are you a dog person or a cat person?
2. Are you fussy about food?

There you go grin

I don't think I've changed my spelling. Do I have a doppelgänger?!?!?

You only need to ask one question:

When you were a kid, did you scoff all your Easter eggs over one or two days or did you make them last for ages?

Tells you all you need to know.

If you could be any other person who would you be?

If you came across Hitler as a baby and you had a gun- would you shoot him?

Feelingfullandreadytoclean Thu 07-Mar-19 12:16:42

If you came across Hitler as a baby and you had a gun- would you shoot him?

Jesus fucking Christ! What a question.
I would probably just kidnap him and bring him up myself and hope he was brought up wrong and not born evil!

I have no idea what I would ask...

MephistophelesApprentice Thu 07-Mar-19 12:21:16

1) Would you rather rule in hell, or serve in heaven?
2) Want a toke?

BlueMerchant Thu 07-Mar-19 12:52:29

Difficult one pp.
I'm thinking rule
