the proust questionnaire

I first came across Proust Questionnaire as a child, flipping through my mother's old issues of Vanity Fair. I always liked the questions- so straightforward, and yet often difficult to answer. Still, I've been feeling self-reflective recently (I've been reading a lot of this, so maybe that explains it...) and I was thinking of taking a stab at answering these in my own private journal. In the meanwhile, take a gander at them yourself and enjoy an introspective weekend.

The Proust Questionnaire:

  • What is your idea of earthly happiness?
  • What is your greatest fear?
  • Which historical figure do you most identify with
  • Which living person do you most admire?
  • What is the trait you most deplore in yourself?
  • What is the trait you most deplore in others?
  • To what faults do you feel most indulgent?
  • The quality you most admire in a man?
  • The quality you most admire in a woman?
  • What is your greatest extravagance?
  • On what occasion do you lie?
  • What do you dislike most about your appearance?
  • When and where were you happiest?
  • If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
  • If you could change one thing about your family what would it be?
  • What do you consider your greatest achievement?
  • If you died and came back as a person or thing what do you think it would be?
  • What is your most treasured possession?
  • What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?
  • Who are your heroes in real life?
  • What is it that you most dislike?
  • How would you like to die?
  • What is your motto?
