You Can Learn Alot About Someone Based On Their Answers To Some of The Most Interesting or Thought Provoking Questions in Life

Dear Readers,

I love to stay up late often and when I’m up during the wee hours I love to research questions, thoughts, or ideas.  I do alot of writing and reading late at night.  I came across a blog called “Marc and Angel Hack Life.”  I googled for interesting and unforgettable questions.  I like to always google questions because I am a firm believer in asking the right questions.  If you ask the right “deep question” then you’ll be surprised of what answers you’ll get in return.  You can learn alot about someone based on their answers to some of the most interesting or thought provoking questions in life.  Not to mention you can connect with new people you’re just meeting on the most interesting levels.  Their answers often show you pieces of them that you normally wouldn’t get to see or experince.  When I google I came across a blog post and had to share their collection of questions.  I fell in love with every question and truly believe everyone needs to hear these questions.  So I chose to repost their blog post for you.

Love Katie

    I found the questions on the blog “Marc & Angel Hack Life”…one of my favorite things in life since I was a kid is to ask people thought prevoking questions. You can learn alot about someone by how they answer each question…it gives you insights in parts of their personality and soul you wouldn’t normally get the chance to see in everyday life. Most people take people they know for granted and never truly take the time to get to know someone. That is one of the reasons I started my blog to not only show people who didn’t know me well the different sides of me but to also touch lives and meet people I’ve never met before.

    You have an interesting point and I think I am going to follow up this post with my answers to these questions. Thanks for the idea. I just didn’t know if people would take the time to read my answers and didn’t know if I could sit down and answer all of them without letting my words run away with me 🙂 I have a habit of doing that.

    Good night and thank you for your kindness and for reading,
    Love Katie
