Criminology/Sociology

My instructor wants me to prepare 15 questions to use to interview a fellow student with so that he can show us how to build a profile on a person based on the answers to the questions.

When I asked what type of questions, he said questions like psychologist might use, then gave examples like, "Do you hate your mother?", "Do you like to give kids candy?" I'm not sure if he was joking or serious about those examples! I need some help figuring out what questions to ask.

  1. I suspect he was partly joking. Open-ended questions are usually much better for eliciting answers than yes-no questions.

    Some that you might use:

    Describe your relationship with your mother.

    What do you do when you feel stressed?
