Asking Questions

To acquire knowledge you have to ask questions. The questions can be of someone else or for yourself to find the answers. But asking a question in a business meeting is an art. People that ask good questions tend to drive the conversation toward the goal the asker is seeking. There are many books on the subject available, but I don’t believe the method for asking questions can be learned that way. I think it must be learned through good logic and patience.

Over the next year, the Presidential candidates will answer a myriad of questions. But most of the questions will either be vague enough to answer without any trepidation or focused on matters that don’t really affect anything in the Presidential space.

I think it is important for journalists in the US to ask specific questions and provide a rational behind it. Don’t allow the candidates to sneak away from answering.
