What are some good yes or no questions to ask when you’re getting to know someone?
You can probably think of some off the top of your head, but how handy would it be to have a ready-made list of yes or no questions that are good for any occasion?
That’s what we thought.
And in making this list, we steered clear of questions likely to put your questionee on the defensive.
That’s so not our goal here.
There’s a reason we put the word “fun” in the title.
What Are Some Good Yes or No Questions?
So, what makes for a good yes or no question? First of all, the questionee should be able to give a simple yes or no answer.
Whether they elaborate is entirely up to them.
Here are some general ground rules to follow when deciding whether or not to ask a specific yes or no question:
- It should respect the privacy of the one being asked.
- It should be a question you could safely ask anyone else.
- It shouldn’t satisfy your curiosity at the other’s expense.
It goes without saying that yes or no questions in a group context should never be used to out anyone or expose them to hostile attention.
Put yourself in their place before you ask.
