"There can be as much value in the blink of an eye as in months of rational analysis."
― Malcolm Gladwell
How true! But, sometimes the perspective derived from a first glance can fail us, for we let our first impressions be the last. The harsh judgments we make and the foolish conclusions we jump to, remain with us longer than they should.
Some questions help you avoid these mind tricks and allow you to see a person beyond superficial judgments. They provoke interesting conversations that evade bondage of time and make up for some unforgettable memories to be cherished for life.
