Examples of fun questions to ask a friend include "If you could marry a cartoon character who would it be? Why?" and "What did you most get into trouble for when you were younger?" Another example is "Which movie title would best depict your life story? Why?"
These questions are fun to use for getting to know a friend better and are well suited to games, sleepovers and shared meals. Questions like these are great for discovering things about a friend that aren't usually talked about. They are also good for building a team, getting to know co-workers and making first impressions more interesting.
When getting to know someone, it is good practice to avoid questions about politics, religion and sexual orientation. Questions like these are great ice breakers and help people avoid asking inappropriate questions, says LifeHack. They are more stimulating than the basic questions that revolve around a person's job or home town.
Some other examples of fun questions to ask people are "What’s your favorite indoor/outdoor activity?" and "If you could do anything you wanted right now, what would it be?" Common themes for unique questions include "if you could," "would you rather" and "what's your favorite."
