If the person asks you the first question. that is, "tell me about life?" the person is asking you about, how is your life going? what is happening in your life? etc.
and, If the person is asking you, "tell me about yourself?"
He means, tell me about , what you like to do, what you don't?, your hobbies? what pisses you off? what and who makes you happy?? what kind of a person you think you are? are you adventurous? etc etc about yourself. :)
