Why Ask About Likes and Dislikes?

Opening up is difficult for many people. Asking simple like and dislike questions allows a person to share in a safe way. When you actually listen, you can start hearing when a person begins to relax.

Granted, asking a person what they like on pizza won't allow you to learn much about their personality, but it can lead to deeper questions about books, character traits, and more.

How To Ask Like/Dislike Questions

Depending on the situation, starting out with an easy question is best. You don't want to ask one question after another or the person will get bored and feel like you are interrogating them.

One way to use these to start a question is to ask the question, then follow up by asking why? This allows the person to open up more and the conversation can continue.

These questions will help you have fun meeting new people and getting to know your friends, family, and coworkers better.

You could also make this into a game that breaks the ice in a meeting or other social situation.

Have everyone take turns asking and answering or have everyone write their answers to several questions on strips of paper and have the rest of the group guess whose answer it is.

If you feel awkward just blurting out a question, you can start by answering it yourself. The point of these questions is to lead into a conversation that gets a person talking. Many are closed questions, but adding the “why” helps to make them open-ended.

Final Thoughts on Likes and Dislikes

Having a list of several questions from this list,  that aren't controversial, can help you overcome anxiety in social situations. While they are similar to most small talk, they actually allow you to get insight into another person and share some things about yourself.

Starting conversations can be difficult, but they don't have to be if you go about them in this way. Have fun with these and enjoy all the enow things you learn about everyone.
