Learning to Ask Better Questions: 25 Tricks

Learning to Ask Better Questions: 25 Tricks | Good News For A Change | Scoop.it

There’s plenty of literature on how to ask other people questions, but what about directing questions to ourselves? We can ask our students all the tricky questions we can think of, hoping to boost their critical thinking skills, but the ability to ask questions oneself–rather than just answering them–separates true learners from the rest.

 

Of course, this is similar to something like the Socratic method, where a series of questions help you reveal what you think about an argument or idea. Regardless of how you approach it, the end goal is to learn to think critically and analyze everything. As we’ve seen before, it’s important to always ask yourself why something is important and how it connects to things to you already know. As you do that, you train your brain to make connections between ideas and think critically about more information you come across.

Marc Wachtfogel, PhD's curator insight, August 16, 12:22 PM

Influence is like magic--it moves even money. As an entrepreneur, there have been plenty of times when I didn't have enough money to make something happen, but I could exercise influence and shift the outcome in my direction.


No one is born with influence. You can grow it like you grow other skills, like receiving criticism, learning a new language, bringing down your golf handicap, or good parenting. Here’s how.
