Hypothetical questions are related to philosophy, life, relationships, fun, anything and everything under the sun. We make a list of all those questions that work on the basis of suppositions, ifs and maybes.
“Will you be willing to sell your soul to the Devil to get what you want?” This was one hypothetical question asked to me by a friend. Hmmm … this was an interesting hypothetical question that made my mind race for answers. The first question that came to my mind was, is my soul a thing or object that I can trade it for something that I desire? If yes, then is that thing worth trading off my soul? I am a god-fearing individual. Based on this fact, will I be ready to do business with the Devil? Confusing questions? Well, hypothetical questions are asked to confuse you and stimulate your mind to think out of box. What if is the question here, and if it does happen, what would you do?
These questions are a great way to stimulate a conversation with your boyfriend, and to stir the minds of young children. Hypothetical is a situation, a possibility, a proposal, etc. It may never happen or you may someday be facing your hypothetical question in reality. ‘Do you believe in soulmates’ is a hypothetical question that has the possibility of turning into reality.
