A DOZEN QUESTIONS - 2 OF 12 - SPECIAL GUEST: COLIN DARDIS
A DOZEN QUESTIONS
(2 of 12 Posts)
The Pivot Questionnaire comprises 10 questions. I have seen it
used on the television show Inside The Actor's Studio, presented by James
Lipton. Apparently Proust was the original inspiration. The
modern questions originated on a French TV show called Bouillon de Culture,
hosted by Bernard Pivot. I have expanded the questions to 12.
