Good Questions brainstorming sharing. From Mike Lohre

Students, you have created a list of 9 Good Questions for today.  Share your best question on dreams and dreamers, your best question on eccentricity, and your best general question that you might ask anybody.

Share these three best questions in the Comments section here, so we have them all in one place here below my post.  Then we can cherry pick some of the best questions for our own question lists for our interviews.




  1. 1.) Do you believe in finding the best in people? Why?
    2.) Where did you dream for you to be in life as a child? Who or what influenced this if anything?
    3.) What's your favorite story to tell people? (Craziest thing you've ever done, etc.)

    Eccentric- What is your idea of a perfect world?

    Normal Question- How did your childhood affect your adult life?

  4. Dreamer- (this is a simple question, but it's a powerful one that should lead to some good follow-up questions) Do you think you achieved your dream?
