What I mean is this:
On Blind Date they used to ask you "what's your name and where do you come from?" which, if you think about it, tells you absolutely no information whatsoever about what that person's like.
Similarly if you meet someone at a party they might ask you what you do for a living, which maybe tells you a bit more but, unless you're really doing your chosen career, doesn't really tell you much about what that person's like.
So say you were set the challenge of meeting a complete stranger and finding out as much information as possible about what they're like as a person with just two questions, what two questions would you ask?
