Types of True or False Questions

True or false questions are a type of choice questions where you present your respondents with a statement and ask them to choose the correct answer between two answer options, which are “true” or “false”, of course.

There’s no limit to the kind of true or false questions you can ask. But generally, they’re broken down into two main categories:

  • Personality questions: These are questions you ask your audience about themselves and their preferences. There are no right or wrong answers here. The goal is more about getting to know your audience better so that you can cater to their needs.
  • Knowledge questions: These are more like trivia questions that test the respondent’s knowledge by challenging them to select the correct answer. If you want to offer your audience a challenging game or teach them something new in an experiential way, this is the way to go.

Once you pin down the type and goal of the questions you wish to ask, it’s time to decide on the question format.

Types of Quizzes & Formats

If you want to ask one true or false question (or more) online, you basically have three distinct question generation formats to choose from. You could:

  • Make a quiz: It could be a personality quiz or a trivia quiz where you ask a series of true or false questions and calculate scores based on the answer. This is a great way to collect qualified leads and strengthen communication with your audience.
  • Create a poll: This would usually be one quick question which you could use to collect data, engage your audience, start a conversation, or make a point. Check out our poll templates for some ideas. 
  • Build a survey: Use a survey when your goal is to collect and compare data about a specific audience or topic. Take a look at our survey templates and examples to discover various use cases. 

Whether you choose to make a quiz, survey, or poll, you can base it purely on the true or false format or combine a variety of question formats. Examine your goals, the type of data you’re after, and the nature of your audience to figure out which approach is best for you. 

Now that we’ve covered the basics, it’s time to answer one final question: what should you ask? Below, you will find all the inspiration you need, broken down by category.
