Imagine you want to get to know someone and you can ask only five questions. What would you ask? What would you most want to know?

This is an interesting question. I have used some of these interviewing job candidates. 1. What was your childhood like? 2. Where do you see yourself in 10 years? 3. What are your strengths? 4. What are your weaknesses? 5. If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be? I believe these 5 questions would tell me a great deal about the way a person was raised, their goals, self esteem, and integrity.

Let's see...I'm going to give answers on the short side only to protect my privacy. Thank you for asking the question, I hope to see more responses to one that is actually thought provoking. 1. I grew up faster than I should have. 2. A mommy to a 10 year old, wife to my husband, working in the medical field perhaps as a social worker. 3. The love of learning, patience, working well under pressure, and determination. 4. My worst habit is procrastination. 5. I would better education in all parts of the world. I believe any other problems a society is facing can be improved upon by education. Anyone else care to answer?

If I were to talk to a lady: 1)Hi, How are you? 2)What brings you here? 3)Been doing anything lately? Interesting, dangerous, wild or just something out of the blue??? 4)Are you as crazy as me? Due to the other person being curious and intrigued by that unorthodox question they'll ask me.. "how crazy are you? or how crazy is crazy?" 5)Thanks, it's was a pleasure to have met you... err....Ms??
