Although we are taught from childhood that we should not be afraid to ask questions and that we can ask any questions. But the truth is that how to ask questions and what questions to ask require a lot of skills. Fernando Gros is even insightful, as he considers one of the dumbest questions to ask:

"Given what you know now, what would you have done differently? "

Why?

  1. to ask this question does not require any knowledge of the other side , almost a non-brainer question.
  2. secondly, this question assumes that the other's achievements are not good enough, so 'what would you have done differently' lacks the most basic respect.

A better approach would be to dig harder into the other person's feelings and experiences so that you can perhaps get a deeper answer.

尽管我们从小接受的教育就是:不要怕问问题,可以问任何问题。但其实如何提问,提什么问题都很需要技巧。两者直接关系到我们最终会获得什么样的答案。Fernando Gros 更加犀利,在他看来有个提问是最蠢的提问:

“Given what you know now, what would you have done differently?”

为什么呢?
