"Are you refined?" should be the answer? Are you serious?

They've changed it to "polite" since, but the literal meaning, if you break it down, is somewhat close to "refined". As in, cultured in the ways of the world (having been through and been exposed to a lot) enough so that you know your manners. It's pragmatically used more like "polite" in English, from what I gather, but the direct implications behind it are fairly deep.

I find this question to be very impolite;-)
