If you’re trying to figure out what questions to ask in order to make a good personality quiz, this is the post for you. I went through the best quizzes we’ve seen built at Interact and found the most common questions that get asked. I use this post myself when making quizzes to get inspiration by scanning through until I see something that makes sense in context of the quiz I’m building.

1. What’s Your Favorite Color?

I use this question as an ice-breaker, towards the beginning of a quiz to get people started. You can gather data from it in terms of what kind of person the quiz taker is as well. For example, neutral colors are more mellow personalities whereas brighter colors are stronger or more assertive people (typically).

2. Where would you like to live?

This question can give you data on how someone likes to live, which ties directly to their personality. A person who wants to live in isolation vs. someone who wants to live in a city are obviously different and you can tie that back into your quiz correlations.

3. What kind of House Would You like to live in?

This question can be positioned to give you lots of information. For example, you can use it to gauge someone’s affinity to luxury by putting pictures of houses in various states of fanciness. It can also be used in combination with the “where would you want to live?” question to get an idea of how someone really wants to carry out their life.

4. How old are you?

I don’t always ask this question, but it can be super useful, especially if your personalities vary based on time. For example, if you are doing a personality quiz on which TV character people are most like and the characters come from different time periods, you’d use this question to point quiz takers towards the period that fits their age.

5. Where would you like to vacation?

I use this one to determine how adventuresome a person is, which is a great jumping-off point for a result that uses adventure as a key indicator.

6. Pick your favorite car

This question can tell you a lot about a person, do they pick the most expensive car of the classiest one or the most well-known? Use this as a money/style question.  Screen Shot 2016-07-13 at 12.35.24 PM

7. What’s your favorite food?

Classic quiz question. Great one to put towards the beginning of a quiz and use to get the ball rolling. The selection can be used to inform your quiz results by tying the answer choices to different cultures and preferences.

8. What do you do to relax?

You can learn a lot about someone by seeing what they do when no one is watching. This question lets you behind the scenes of someone’s life so you can see what they prefer to do on their own time.

9. What’s Your Favorite Dessert?

Ah, dessert. Since dessert is not an everyday thing (at least for most people), you can learn a lot about how people like to indulge when given the chance.  Screen Shot 2016-07-13 at 1.33.00 PM

10. What are you most passionate about?

A pretty deep question, no doubt, but one that people are willing to answer in a quiz. I love that questions like this actually get answered in quizzes because you can do so much with the data received.

15. What’s Most Important to You?

A purposely open-ended question that allows you to gather pertinent information you need to provide good quiz results. For example, in the question below we ask “What’s One Thing You Can’t Live Without?” and the answer choices are somewhat random, but help inform the quiz, which is a style personality quiz.

26. Who would you most like to go to lunch with?

By asking someone who they would like to go to lunch with, you’re actually asking them what type of person they would like to spend time with. If they select someone like Steve Jobs, they are more serious and tech-minded, if they choose someone like Ellen they are more fun-loving and philanthropic.

45. Are you more outspoken or reserved?

Great question for any type of personality profiling quiz, and it can be used in more serious quizzes as well. With our personality or tallied scoring systems you can use this question to move a quiz taker towards one outcome or you can use it as a very strong indicator by adding a lot of points depending on how they answer.

46. What’s your favorite social network?

Very telling in terms of personality. Instagram is more creative and picture-heavy, snapchat is more in-the-moment and spontaneous, so on and so forth.

48. What inspires you?

This is a super flexible question that fits into almost any quiz. I use it as a way of figuring out what matters most to quiz takers. You can insert pretty much anything into the answer choices which allows you to gather the information you need depending on your unique quiz setup.

49. Who would you want to hang out with?

This is a clever way of asking “who do you want to be like?” which gives a strong indication of what kind of aspirations a person has.

50. What’s Your Favorite Breakfast Food?

I like to work this question in as a way to gauge someone’s health habits as well as routines. For example, if one of the answer choices is “I’m usually to rushed in the morning for breakfast” then you know that person is not someone who is big on routine.
