Question Your Questioning

Is the way you gather information effective enough? In an article for Lifehack, Mike Martel challenges you to level up your questioning. For starters, avoid yes/no questions.

Do not worry about there being periods of silence between questions and answers; allow time for percolation. And importantly, when people are busy answering—remember not to interrupt them.
