Lately I’ve been watching Inside the Actor’s Studio with James Lipton. The questions he asks every guest, right before the audience gets to ask questions, intrigued me. Why those questions? So… I did a little bit of research and found out they were derived from a questionnaire written by Proust, a french novelist. Lipton picked up the idea from a British TV show host named Bernard Pivot. Anyways, I thought I’d post the questions and see if anybody responded to them, so here they are:
What is your favorite word?
What is your least favorite word?
What turns you on?
What turns you off?
What sound or noise do you love?
What sound or noise do you hate?
What is your favorite curse word (feel free to write #$@!&$@ in place, if you’d like)?
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
What profession would you not like to participate in?
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say?
