    Asking questions..

    Its the simple most way to find out more about someone, where they have been, and where they going. However, for some reason as adults get older they lose that nature child skill of always asking why and questioning things to gain better knowledge.. How well do you really know your friends, family, lover, partner.. ?! Tell me more..

    This is so true. I try to get as much information as I can but many times it's hard to distinguish what questions are considered to personal and disrespectful to ask because you dont want to insult the person.

    I can be a verrrrry inquisitive person... cuz like you said its the only way to find out things. However, unfortunately as we get older, and the world becomes more and more corrupt... sometimes we are afraid to ask questions because we are afraid of the answers.

    Jamz: you have a point, better safe than sorry

    Yanktiguan: That has prevented me from asking many questions.

    Sometimes silence is key, by listening and observing u can find out a lot about a person, sometimes more that they would want you to know. I think as u get older u use more of your senses to learn about things.

    Very intuative.. But isnt that sometimes apart of the problem. ?!We tent to rely on the senses that can easily be fooled instead of just coming right out and asking, to nullify all doubt..

    You won't be fooled if u verify what you've heard by reiterating what was said. U could still ask questions, no harm, but I'm just pointing out that as u get older you learn other ways to get ur answer.

    I agree... I dont think it should replace asking questions.... but we shouldnt rely on verbal answers alone... Ask questions, and observe.

    this obviously does not apply to me b/c I ask questions 24/7!!!! to the point where I tell ppl to tell me if it gets overwhelming or annoying
