Hello, native English speakers,
Could you help me?

Do you ever say "What makes you happy"?
If yes, in what situation would it be used?

Thanks in advance.

I think it is a good way to start a personal conversation between two peoples. It is a way to discover more about the other person in order to get a global point of view of what people like, enjoy etc.

usually, to start a conversation with somebody I know. a friend, a relative or even an acquaintant.

it is unusual for me to ask it to strangers except on forums like this :) guess this makes sense to start a convo.

"What makes you happy?" and "What makes you sad?" kind of inquire deeply about a person. In that sense, they are personal questions. I don't ask those often. But, I think they are beautiful questions, because I love getting to know people on a deep level.

Thanks for your help, ledojaeger. Are you American?

I've learned English in Japan and have never lived in any English-speaking countries. So I'm not sure how native English speakers actually use the language in their everyday life. Thank you for your interesting view.

Yes, I am American.
For not living in an English speaking country, your English is amazing. I honestly would have thought that you were a native speaker!!
