How to Interview Strangers


1. The gist

Find people you’re interested in (or by chance) and just start chatting with them.

2. Why interview strangers?

The best way to learn more about the world and society; don’t read or follow the news. Talk to real people instead.

3. Ask open ended questions

Don’t ask ‘yes’ or ‘no’ questions. Ask open ended questions. Let them respond.

4. Don’t be afraid to get personal

Ask personal details. Strangers (funny enough) are more likely to divulge secretive information with you than even close friends or family members!
