What do I need to ask to decide if I want to live with you? (And you with me?)

Imagine I've turned up on the doorstep to check out the spare room... it's nice, place is tidy, location is good, I can live in this house... now what do I ask to find out if I can live with you?
Bonus round: What should I tell you about me (seeing you must want to know about my personality and quirks too)?
I've read the various threads on the kind of things one needs to discuss in order to have a smooth running house, but I need the kind of questions to ask before we get to that point! The kind of probing questions that will help me figure out whether temperaments and habits and other such important things are compatible. I realise that knowing kitchen habits and methods of bill payment are good clues, but there must be questions that give better insight!
