After that, I presented a question and had each of them answer it in their own voice:
Naomi: Playful, yet intelligent.
Miola: Somewhat archaic, polite and optimistic.
Peter: Elaborate and concrete, but long-winded.
Fweo: Blunt and brief.
Of course, if you do something like this, you should use more than one question.
1. How do you feel about the democratic revolution?
Naomi: "Honestly, no one has any idea how to run a democracy. We should have waited until it was more stable before adopting it."
Miola: "It's as good an idea as any, though I find myself agreeing with my sister. Waiting another five years may have been prudent."
Peter: "While it's true that the current system is unstable, that's why there's such an emphasis on education now. Anyone who can pay for it can be educated in politics, math, science, language, and philosophy. The goal is to append our knowledge with facts using resources only a formal classroom can supply."
Fweo:"It worked. We're a democracy."
