Psychologist Arthur Aron and his team have asked 36 questions called "Interpersonal intimacy Test", claiming to quickly increase intimacy between two strangers. Psychologists have also said that if you choose to ask one or more of the following 36 questions and answer them yourself, you can get anyone to love them.

36 questions were split into three groups, each one more in-depth than the previous group. The basic principle is that "there is no cover-up between the two sides of the fragile show can make intimacy rise." "arthur Aron said:" The close relationship between the two elements from both sides, solid, progressive disclosure of the ego. " "Everyone is an armed individual in life, it is not easy to show vulnerability, so through these 36 problems, Arthur Aron is actually a short period of time to remove the atrium, to provide more understanding of each other's first key."

Two strangers who have never been alike, is there a possibility of falling madly in love? The intimacy and trust that takes months to build can be achieved in one night? These 36 questions are like a bet: "Is there anything we think we can do to be human in love?" "(Recommended reading: A lifelong relationship that is not intimate?) )

After 36 questions, the final stage is to gaze at each other for four minutes.

Shortly after the publication of the report, the New York Times received a letters from female writer Mandy Len Catron , saying that she had actually tried the 36 questions and four minutes of eye contact at the bar with a strange partner.

"Those 36 questions are naked, but by repeatedly mentioning their fears and vulnerabilities, and sharing experiences, the words that were originally scary seem to have become insignificant." 」

"Staring at each other for four minutes is probably the scariest experience I've had in my life," he said. Just stare at each other soon, we all breathe to let oneself not so embarrassed, once accept stare at each other's horror, give oneself time through uncomfortable, two minutes later, we arrive the realm that did not anticipate, I feel brave and magical. My partner was watching me, and I was looking at him and I felt so close. When the time is up, I feel relaxed and feel a bit disappointed. 」

"Although we have no choice as to who will fall in love with ourselves, it is not necessarily the same as falling in love by one night's conversation." But I began to realize that love may be more malleable than we think. Arthur Aron's psychological research taught me that it is possible, even simple, to establish intimacy and trust between two people. And both can make love stronger. The writer wrote it, and finally he was in love with the friend he met at the bar.

We all think how small we are in the face of love, we are only careless through the storm of love, Careless love to die, no room for control. But these 36 psychological problems, as well as the experience of women writers, tell us that love is not only believing, but also an action. (Recommended reading: love equals action!) Write your own love ending )

If you have doubts about Arthur Aron's research, you might as well defy the risk of not knowing or unfamiliar friends, try these 36 questions, but wait, the consequences of love!

Perhaps we do not have to use these 36 questions as a "super long Test" with strangers, but we can understand that in the face of love, we are not as small and incompetent as we think.

Love is not accidental, if fall in love, because we made the choice. Choose to stay with each other, choose to leave time to each other, choose to put down the heart to show vulnerability. How lucky, in this choice, have you have me. So when we look into each other's eyes, we see the possibility of "us". (Recommended reading: complementary or similar is not important: it is important to be willing to change for each other )

Only for seemingly inexplicable love, not only because of the fate of the doomed, but also because you have chosen each other.
