Sounds a bit silly, I know, but a question like this could shed some light on your prospect.
You could frame the question a number of different ways:
“If you had a time machine and could only use it once, would you go to the future or the past? And why?”
“If you had a time machine and could go back in time to change one event, what would that be?”
And here’s one with a bit of an intellectual twist to it: “If you had a time machine and you knew using it would cause unintended effects on others, would you still use it?”
