It’s time for question #7! I’m going to be using Arthur Aron’s “36 Questions” for awhile. Aron is a social psychology researcher at Stony Brook University. His 36 Questions have been published in various places all over the internet and are usually referred to as the 36 Questions to Fall in Love. However, the questions are useful for improving any sort of relationship, because they push us past small talk.
As always, you can keep your responses light and simple, short and sweet, or dig in deep. You can head down a sexy road, or keep it safe for work. It’s totally up to you! The goal is simply to get to know one another better. There’s also certainly no one way to answer a question. Maybe your answer will come in the form of a photo…or a poem…or a story. And feel free to twist the prompt however it works for you. Linking up to multiple memes is a great way to get your work out there, so if you can make it work that way, have at it!
The question is:
Given the choice of anyone in the world, who would you want as a dinner guest?
This is actually a question I use quite often when I’m just meeting someone new. It tells me a lot about them. Usually, I don’t force them to choose just one. In fact…have a whole damn dinner party if you want. These people can be real or fictional, dead or alive, etc.
You can also see future prompts on the main #tellmesomethingtrue site.
Link-ups open from Sunday to Sunday (noon PST).
