Sunday Poser # 132- Asking Questions

Welcome back to another Sunday Poser

This week my question is;

Do you ask the obvious questions? Stupid question?

Asking questions is a way to know things. In this year’s A to Z challenge, my topic was questions so you know that I’m an asker of questions!

My daughter calls me miss obvious, for I ask the obvious questions sometimes! The answer to which is “duh….yes” I sometimes ask random questions that just pop into my head during a conversation on a different topic. This often throws other people into confusion.

Do you ask too many questions? Have you ever asked a stupid question and got a surprising response?

Please share your thoughts in the comments section or you can write your own post and link it to this one so that I can find it.

As usual, thanks of visiting and reading.

  1. I ask a lot of questions, some might say too many. 😆

    I’m personally not sure there are “stupid questions” – it’s just that the kind of questions we ask should reflect the kind of answers we want to get. It’s true that asking seemingly obvious questions can be very useful. For example, they can help connect people or help someone pay more attention to something so “obvious” that its importance may have slipped under their radar. 🙂

  2. Oh my yes, I was raised on “there is no such thing as a stupid question” philosophy. Even as a child my “stupid questions” are often the unanswerable ones 😉 Recently a question about the stock market resulted on a lengthy, informative, and fun discussion between SuperHubs and I about how, precisely the stock market works, the changes the trading process has been through as technology has evolved. Yeah FUN 😉

  3. I take a similar approach to wideeyewandering. Being a teacher/lecturer, I always say there is no such thing as a stupid question – if they don’t understand something they need to ask … it would be more stupid not to ask and never know.
    It could be that the question seems stupid, but things haven’t been explained clearly. If you had the answer you wouldn’t need to ask … its better to ask and get clarification.
    Also, I’ve seen so many stupid things done because someone didn’t want to ask the question

  4. I like to ask a question rather than assume I know the answer. Even if I feel sure that I know the response, I will still ask it, just to hear it from that person(s).

  5. “Asking questions is a way to know things.”🤷💡
    Yes, I ask too many questions. Stupid ones also.
    I don’t always get answers of my questions.
    So, sometimes, I do individual research, other times, I try to answer on my own.

  6. I ask a lot of questions of myself and others and probably ask what others might consider as stupid questions at the time, but how do we define what might be a stupid question to one person whilst another sees it as a straight forward one? 🙂

  7. Questions help us find answers….sometimes the most innocent of queries is only the spark that helps us discover clarity on a stubborn issue. Keep asking questions! 💞💞💞
