‘Tell us something interesting about yourself’ is the worst one.
Everyone panics trying to think of something not boring/but not arrogant to say about themselves. I’m not sure I can remember a single interesting fact anyone has shared in these icebreakers.
What’s your favourite book, movie, music album, TV, vacation spot, or memory is a lot easier and a lot more fun. People begin thinking of something positive – something they’re excited and happy to share about themselves.
How did you get into [topic]? Is also pretty good.
Great icebreakers don’t cause anxiety attacks.
