It is an imperative sentence.


The word order (lack of subject) indicates that this sentence is imperative. You ask someone to do something (to tell about yourself).

The interrogative sentence would have order: #V-S-O#.

An example could be: Could you tell me anything about yourself?

Here the word order and use of anything in place of something indicates an interrogative character of the sentence.
