Who are you, really?

Just recently I started to learn Spanish. Spanish is a superbly elegant and beautifully colorful language with a grammar charming in its logic. In my very first lesson I learned to pose and answer questions like this:

“¿Cómo te llamas? ¿De dónde eres? ¿Cuántos años tienes? ¿En qué trabajas? ¿Tienes móvil? ¿Tienes correo electrónico?” Without knowing Spanish, you will nevertheless surmise that these questions are universal questions asked when people meet for the first time. They deal with name and origin. They ask for age, profession, and telephone number. And if people continue the dialogue, further questions might include cultural background, religious affiliation, and/or inquiries about parents and siblings.
