If you had to come up with one question, the answer to which would determine whether or not you could be friends with a person you’ve just met, what would it be? What would the right answer be?
What is your passion in life?
This is the best I can think of to be able to have an inkling of what matters to a person. The answer could be anything from collecting stamps to eradicate poverty but I doubt I will be able to determine ‘friendability’.
If someone replied, “My passion is to help people in need,” it would make me want to find out more about how he or she goes about doing it. That person might not only find a friend in me but a follower.
