This is a mash-up of several well-known questionnaires, plus some added extras from a selection of job interview questions.
Please feel free to share your answers in the comments section of this post or in a post of your own if you’re a blogger – if you do a post please share a link to it in the comments.
This is just for fun, so don’t do the bits which aren’t fun for you.
If you’d like to visit the sites from which I borrowed these questions, and see the full set of questions as well as the original version of the questions I’ve altered a bit, the links are as follows:
Interesting Thing of the Day: The Questionnaires of James Lipton, Bernard Pivot, and Marcel Proust
Fast Company: 36 Interview Questions That Are Actually Fun To Answer
If you’re up for an additional challenge, here’s some questions from me:
1 – Which of these questions was your favourite and why?
2 – What did you learn about yourself while reading the questions?
3 – What did you discover about yourself while answering the questions?
4 – If you checked out the original questionnaires, which of the questions that I left out would you have liked to have answered and why?
Here is the mash-up questionnaire:
1 – What is your favorite word?
2 – What is your favorite curse word?
3 – What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
4 – What sound or noise do you love?
5 – What natural gift would you most like to possess?
6 – What is your principal defect? List the pros of having this defect and give it a positive spin (imagine that you’re selling it to someone else)?
7 – What is your motto? Why is it your motto? Where or who did it come from originally?
8 – What was the last gift you gave someone?
9 – You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be and why? Describe the color to somebody who is blind.
10 – What are you known for?
11 – What’s the most interesting thing about you that we wouldn’t learn from your resume (or online bio/profile) alone?
12 – What’s the last thing you watched on TV and why did you choose to watch it?
13 – How would you convince someone to do something they didn’t want to do?
14 – You’ve been given an elephant. You can’t give it away or sell it. What would you do with the elephant?
15 – We finish the interview and you step outside the office and find a lottery ticket that ends up winning $10 million. What would you do?
16 – Teach me something I don’t know in the next five minutes (in your reply to this question).
I know the last one isn’t really a question, I just love the concept of it and the difficult challenge it poses.
I’ll share my own answers in another post.
Over to you!
Omg omg omg I used to do surveys like this all the mother hugging time back on my livejournal. I’ll totes have to do this on my blog when I get the chance later on. Hahaha!!!!!! *frenetic, aggressive happy bouncing*
Kool, Kim 😀 Look forward to exploring it!
#4 The sound or noise from F1 race cars
#8 A black case stuffed with candies inside. It’s not exactly the gift I gave out but this is one gift that I really wanted/meant to give. Incidentally, the day I presented the gift was also the time my heart ran away to my muse lol
#15 Cash/claim it immediately!
#16 This is suppose to be the difficult question ah… I’m just gonna have a little fun and mess it abit 😉 I will teach you the Chinese translation of your blog’s name An Upturned Soul = 上翹的靈魂, but you probably know this if you google translate it. So instead here is the Cantonese version, a more simplistic translation of mine 心靈倒轉.

Thank you, Reverist, that’s excellent! 😀
Your answer to #4 reminded me of the sound of my partner’s car, it’s like a low purr-growl, very satisfying. I can hear his car coming up the road long before he gets home.
LoL, my version of the F1 cars are continuous loud and screeching vrooms!
And I forgot the link to the Cantonese translation for your blog’s name, here you can hear how it sound after copy paste in the translator https://www.chineseconverter.com/cantonesetools/en/cantonese-text-to-sound
oh, I did a post answering from questions and some more detailed answers because I remembered more things after making the comment. Thank you 🙂
OMO! That’s such a wonderful tool! I love it! 😀
How good is the pronunciation, because I tried a couple of Italian versions of that and they’re awful but funny.
I agree, F1 sounds very screechy and whiny. Meowwwwwwww as they zoom by. What you said sent me off on a tangent of car sounds. I live right next to a busy road and each car or truck or tractor or motorcycle, etc, has a sound personality. Last night when all was quite suddenly there was this load vroom… fairly certain it was a road motorcycle. The owner kept revving it while stopped for a few minutes. And there was also the sound of tires on ground kicking up a bits of a gravel storm. 😉

Thank you very much, Melanie ❤
I am going to do this Ursula – it is too late now – I have to sleep, my head feels like it does when the underground trains make those horrid screeching noises as they are breaking.
Thank you, Mel 🙂
Oh, ouch! Take good care of yourself!
It took me ages…but I did it!!
Thank you, Mel, that’s awesome 🙂
