My name is Tatiana, but my friends and family call me Tutta. I like writing articles that help bring people closer together.


If you are hosting a meeting with a team of new people, teaching a class on the first day of school, or just doing something that might put a group of people in an awkward setting, then you might just want to kick off that whatever-it-is with a good icebreaker!

What Are Icebreakers?

Think about a block of ice; what qualities does it have? It’s cold, still, hard, and just kinda sits there, and it may melt over time depending on the temperature. It’s kind of like a person in an uncomfortable situation; it doesn’t know what to say and might just sit there, not wanting to speak out at all. Sometimes you need a little chisel to get something going, and a chisel in this analogy would be an icebreaker! There are a few games you could play, but the most commonly played and easily used are icebreaker questions.

Icebreaker questions can be funny, serious, or even “would you rather” scenarios. They are meant to get everyone out of their shell and socializing, and depending on the event, to help people get to know one another! But what kind of questions make the best icebreaker questions for getting to know just one person? Funny icebreaker questions, that’s what!

So here, that’s what I will focus on. Keep in mind that the questions themselves may not be funny, but the answers they will generate will have the room rolling on the floor! Here goes…
