Bernard Pivot Questionnaire

I’m a big fan of Inside the Actor’s Studio and if you guys haven’t seen any of the interviews, then I suggest you go on Youtube type in your favorite actor/actress and Inside the Actor’s Studio. Its a lot of fun to watch and you learn a lot about your favorite actor. The host, James Lipton is a professional when it comes to interviewing the stars. He knows what questions to ask, when to ask them and all in front a group of film students. He does so much research to prepare for a single interview and each question indefinitely comes with a long, fascinating answer. At the end of the interviews, which usually last for an hour, Lipton conducts a questionnaire thats consists of 10 questions. 10 very simple questions that teach you a lot about a person’s…well, personality. After I learned about these questions, I started using them whenever I felt it was necessary. On first dates, during random meetings with cute boys on the holidays, basically whenever the ice needed to be broken. It really does the trick, because the answers lead to stories which lead to long conversations and an eventful date/encounter/meet cutes etc. It has helped me a lot in providing interesting conversation so if you guys are ever on a date and there is that infamous awkward silence…whip this questionnaire out. You’ll be happy you did! Or not…depending on the answers.

So, since I do this questionnaire for everyone, no one has actually ever done it to me, so like the recluse that I am, I shall give myself the questionnaire. And so you guys can see the questions!

1. What is your favorite word?


2. What is your least favorite word?


3. What turns you on (creatively, emotionally, spiritually etc)?

Inspiration; an inspired person

4. What turns you off?


5. What is your favorite curse word?

6. What sound or noise do you love?

The light patter of rain on a tin roof

7. What sound or noise do you hate?

That sound of complete silence. It’s so quiet that you hear a ringing…No? Just me? Okay. 

8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?

Travel Journalist…maybe…I don’t know…I have a lot of ideas. 

9. What profession would you not like to do?

An accountant 

10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?

And that’s the questionnaire everyone! You can ask your friends, your significant others, random people on the street and you could even leave your answers in the comment section for this post! I’d love to hear your answers!

Hope you all had a good weekend 🙂
