If you are on a date perhaps, what are some thoughtful questions to ask that will give more insight to a person’s character?
Should the questions be about their childhood/past? Or plans and aspirations for the future?
Thanks for the help in advance!

If you want to make a deep connection with someone, nothing gets to their heart more than someone who wants to understand them on a more, personal level where most people would have a hard time responding or asking such questions. What you mentioned about their childhood/future aspirations is a great place to start! Here's a few I can think of:
"What do you think of our world today? Do you like it or hate it?
(To better understand their point of view on the world which can relate to something in their personal life such as depression and social behavior.)
"What qualities do look for in a friend?"
(To find out more about how they want to be treated, which can help you understand what kind of friendship will make them the happiest!)
"I'm curious how your current relationship is going? Do you like them?" or "If you're looking to be in a relationship, what kind of person do you want?"
(This helps understand their emotions needs and flaws that they find not only within themselves but others as well.)
"Have you ever felt like you are alone at times?"
(To being out their emotions of finding out what their home life is like, alongside with current friendships and relationships they are in.)
You can get really creative with your questions in where you can find out multiple sources of information at the same time! There's always those typical casual questions like "What's your favorite..." or "Where in the world do you want to travel?" but they are nothing more then mere facts; that it's not actually bonding with them on a more personal note. Hope you can find some of these to be inspiring for friendships you may have/are looking forward to!
