Great worksheet. If I were going to have housemates I would definitely use this as a set point for an interview.

I was fine with your answers for the most part. We are not going to be exactly alike. I am sure we can work something out with a house duty schedule. What chores do you dislike doing?

I like the tv, music, radio and also the bathroom cleanliness questions. Those are all important to me and I would have never guessed to ask about the bathroom or the radio. Silence especially is the most important thing to me. I also always thought I was pretty good keeping the dishes clean, but it turns out I am average.

Hi there,
Well the point of the questionnaire is to help people think of things that they wouldn’t have thought to. However, there’s no “average” here. There’s only what is true about you, so that you can use your answers to compare with a potential housemate. Good luck!

Excellent. Please tell us how it works out for you.

Thanks for this…I found it helpful although I felt that it was difficult to select just one answer to many of the questions. Also, in the comment section after most of the questions, 25 characters was not enough to make a comment. I’ve read the book and learned a lot. Thanks!

This is a neat tool to gauge the living style, for less surprises.

The reason this will benefit me is the fact that so many times in life we are caught off guard by the little things that we pretend doesn’t bother us but in reality it does. I think it will help with that.

Exactly. Come back and tell us how it works for you!
