Go here for my collab based on this - http://hitrecord.org/records/153583
Hedge's idea inspired an idea in my head.... I think it would be very interesting to interview people who have been in long-term close relationships (romantic or otherwise), separately. Ask them each the same set of questions and see how they are similar or wildly different. I think a lot of the best relationships are those with extreme opposites yet with extreme similarities. And I think it could make a very cool video.
I'd love to start this project with my own friends and family, but I'm looking for some outside suggestions on the types of questions to ask.
Some basic questions I've thought of so far:
- How do you deal with stressful situations?
- How do you process questions/thoughts?
- If you could spend a day doing absolutely anything, anywhere, what would you do?
- What is your favorite way to relax?
- Describe yourself in 5 words.
- Describe your ideal person in 5 words.
I've also toyed with this-or-that questions, but I think this may not be as interesting...? Or maybe I'm wrong.
- Loud or quiet?
- Fast or slow?
- Inside or outside?
- Rainy or sunny?
- Thunderstorm or snowfall?
- Sweet or salty?
- Hot or cold?
REVISION #1 - Instead of asking each person questions about themselves, ask them questions about each other.
- How does he/she deal with stressful situations?
- How does he/she process questions/thoughts?
- What does he/she consider her greatest strength?
- What do you think his/her greatest strength is?
And so on.
OR just let them describe, generally, what the other person is like, how they make them feel, etc., and have the questions as backups.
I would love love love to see anybody take this idea and twist it in to something better. This is just a random thing that popped in my head, and I wanted to post it before I lost my excitement ;)
