Hey ProductHunt! I had a lot of fun this long week-end making Digital Socrates. The core of this product is the question. The more thoughtful questions, the better! Feel free to add your own 😉 I'm also open to adding/removing/changing categories, what do you think? Also, would you be interested in seeing this as a chrome extension (a new question for each new tab)?

Important to note too: I was inspired by sharpen.design and http://thepminterview.com to make this website!

I love this concept! I was a big philosophy buff in college and I think everyone could benefit from having a few more philosophical questions asked them everyday. And you should definitely make this a chrome extension with a question to answer (optionally of course) on every tab that’s a great idea! Wish you luck with this project!

Hello :) I'm giving it a try but does the Notepad keeps your answers for later on ? Not sure about the purpose of it…

@raphaelcreton Hey Raphaël, the notepad does not save your answers. If you want to save them there is a handy 'copy to clipboard' button at the bottom. My thought process for not building a save button for the answer was to focus on questions first and foremost. But given that many users have asked for that feature, I will consider it more on the roadmap priorities!

@bissenmann Thank your Ben. When using it, spontaneously I thought that after answering all the questions, because of the presence of the notepad, some kind of recap would be sent.

Hi @bissenmann If you want to keep Google Sheets as a backend maybe you can improve a little bit: 1. Create a new sheets for categories 2. Add a dropdown list https://support.google.com/docs/... 🚀
