We just did an exercise in my playwriting class about character back story and had to create questions that would reveal insights to those people. Here’s what I came up with:
Hunger drives motivation.
What can take a person down can tell a lot about what builds them up.
Personally, when I am in different situations I sign my name in different ways. I think it mirrors self perception.
Speaks loads about their personality and how they exist in social situations.
What they search for is what they want, obviously.
Intellectual stamina or something.
Why people stay says a lot about who they are.
Stance on religion.
I think this choice tells a lot about how people argue and perceive the world around them.
