Art of Questioning
Portland Community Church

"Judge a person by their questions rather than their answers" - Voltaire

Do you want to solve problems quickly or be unafraid to talk to anyone?

I'm going to experiment with my social skills by interviewing at least twenty strangers in public. My goal is to ask the most interesting questions and if I'm successful, it will lead to even more interesting questions. This is a great way to learn about a person or topic very quickly.

I'm planning to record my interviews and share my techniques by recapping the results during the Meetup. If anyone would like to volunteer, we can practice the "Art of Questioning".

If you're a student "Questioning is the ability to organize your thinking around what we don't know" - The Right Question Institute. If you're a teacher, questions can guide a student to a better answer. Either way, we can do both.

Be inspired! Knowledge Mavens
