Can you make a person contradict themself with one, yes/no question?

A contradiction is within your statement. At first, you say "a person," but then you say "themself" (when it is obvious you meant "themselves"). "Person" and "them" is contradictory; "person" is singular while "them" is plural. You should have said "his or herself."

Depends on the question, but yes. (Don't you dare ask me to do it, XD).

Lol ok I won't. But here's one example.

Please answer the next question with either yes or no. Nothing else.
Will you answer no?
