Do you prefer to talk or to listen? 你更喜欢说还是听？
Well, I think it largely depends on the specific topic we are talking about. If it is something I am not familiar with, I would remain silent for most of the time and listen to others’ opinion. But if I happen to know quite a lot, I will become very talkative, trying to occupy the centre of the stage.
What do you like to talk about? 你喜欢讨论什么？
As a person majoring in international relations, history, politics and wars can easily arouse my interest. My roommates and I used to have a lot of discussion about the policies that President Trump has adopted since he took the oval office and the escalating tensions between the United States and China.
Have your discussion topics changed since you were a child? 从你是孩子以来，你讨论的话题有没有变化？
Yes, of course. When I was a kid, my discussion was normally centred around cartoon characters, like how powerful they were and whether they could defeat the enemy. Now, these characters have faded away from my life and been replaced by more realistic issues. In fact, I have not watched any cartoon for the last several years.
Do you change your opinion frequently? 你经常改变自己的观点吗？
I would say no. Actually, most of my friends use the word “stubborn” to describe me. Once I have an opinion, I will stick to it and rarely change, unless it does not go with reality.
