Sometimes we feel like we’ve run out of things to say, and it’s awkward. But don’t worry. Here are 35 conversation questions to help you along.
Not everyone is a Chatty Cathy. Some people are just naturally talkative, while others are not. And even if you are a pretty good conversationalist, sometimes you know someone so well that you feel like you know everything about them.
35 brilliant conversation questions
Don’t worry, there is always something that can be talked about. The universe is filled with things to be curious about – from personal things to do aliens exist. So listen up! These will ease your stress at the next party you attend. Here are some conversation questions.
#1 Where are you from? Easy, boring, yet necessary when you are just meeting someone. I mean, it’s just sort of expected.
#2 What do you do for a living? What someone does for a living can be quite interesting – especially when it’s really different from what you do. Maybe you can learn something new.
#4 Do you have any siblings? Or maybe they’re an only child. If not, where are they in the birth order? Do they get along with their siblings, or are they wildly different?
#5 Are you more outgoing or shy? If they’re familiar with the Myers-Briggs personality test, ask them if they know what they are. If not, simply asking them if they are an introvert or extrovert will do.
#6 What were you like in high school? Were they a jock? A band geek? Valedictorian? In the drama club? Homecoming Queen? Have they changed since high school?
#7 Tell me what you love about your job. Hopefully there is something they like. If not, that’s kind of sad. But, it’s one of the typical conversation questions.
#15 Do you think the Illuminati exists? Okay, maybe they don’t know who the Illuminati is. But it’s a secret society people suspect exists and is really running the world. And one of the more fascinating conversation questions.
#16 Who do you think really killed JFK? Yeah, I know that happened over 50 years ago, but it’s a part of history. And a controversy.
#17 What’s your favorite movie? This says a lot about a person too. Is it an action-adventure movie or a love story? Or something in between?
#28 If you won the lottery, would you quit your job? Seems like a silly question, but some people love their jobs so much that they would not quit.
#29 Do you believe in ghosts? This tests their beliefs about an afterlife. Even more interesting, ask them if they’ve ever seen a ghost or know someone who has. This might turn into one of the most creepy conversation questions.
#30 If you could make a voodoo doll and hurt anyone in the world, would you do it? Okay, this is kind of morbid. But it not only test who they despise, but how far their anger would go.
#31 If your baby was accidentally switched in the hospital *and you took home the wrong child*, but you found this out a year later, would you want your biological child back? Ohhh, this is a tough one, because we would all probably want to keep both babies!
