What are some deep things to say to people if they ask you personal questions?

Someone asked me a personal question and I did not want to answer. They asked why I didn't and I told them I'd get back to them. How should I answer them in a deep way.
Something deep that will make them feel stupid.

Look them in the eye and say, Boxers or Briefs? You can laugh up a storm if they answer "Depends"

You gave them the ball when you told them that you'd get back with them, giving them reason to bother you again. When they do ask you again, it's as simple as saying, "that's something personal to me and I don't have to defend my reasoning for not wanting to answer... and if you have any respect for me.. stop asking."

just be upfront and honest. tell them that its a question too deep and personal and only something you share with your deepest truest friends. there's no need to make people feel stupid for asking a question that may show that they have concern for you..

You don't want to make anyone feel stupid, instead, you should set your goal at sounding intelligent. Easy answer, "I'd really rather not discuss that at this time".

It is better to remain silent and thought the fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubts.

Say, 'This is important to you because?' If they then give you a reason, say,'Oh', and leave it hanging right there. Silence is golden.

"Why would you ask that?"
"What is the connection between you and this kind of personal information?"
If they ask about money, say "Please don't ask me about money."
"Why would you want to know that? It's so personal."
"I don't ask other people personal questions unless I know them well enough."
"Why do you need this kind of information?"

Just look them in the eye vary casually and say nothing. It will occur to them what this means. Silence is powerful.

I remember my mom discussing this very thing with me, years ago. She said the best thing is to ask the person, "Why do you feel you need to know that??" Just answer with another question. There's no law that states you must answer rude, nosy people!

Just say you don't wanna answer it or say that you don't have the answer to it. No point in making others feel stupid, you are not supposed to hurt others in any way. An eye for an eye makes the world go blind :)
