What is your goal when you ask a question?


Obviously, there must be a reason for asking questions. I have my reasons and I have always had a strategy. I am curious what others think and do and why? In the meanwhile I find it extremely helpful visiting profiles of people and seeing their Q&A sections. You can say a lot about a person by a single answer and especially by the range of questions the person asks. This resource is invaluable. Do you agree?

    I don't want to make the judgment - selfish, not selfish - if you ask a question, have a certain goal in mind, achieve this goal - I would not call it selfish. If you don't achieve the goal (if there was any) - then it is your judgment call.

    I agree with you. Sometimes it is hard to think of a question, but once you get the hang of it - it is very stimulating to get responses and get the understanding what interests other people and what does not.

    To me asking a question is simply asking a question, seeing what people think. I have to admit it is easier than to expect others to read my hubs which is time-consuming. Sometimes an Q&A is the best beginning for the HP relationship. Simple.

    I like your approach because it is similar to mine, only I ask more than I answer and I never select the best answer. I think everybody who bothered answering deserves the same gratitude. Thanks!

    HP did not have that option before, but to me just glancing on questions, the number of answers they generate and the overall impression tells me enough about a writer - even before I get to read his/her hubs.

    I like trying out different topics and different directions and sometimes I see a lot of responses - that means - that I have managed to touch the emotional strings of many people. It's interesting to discuss what we care about. I think.

    I agree that feedback is important, if not surprising at times. On my question of "sapiosexuality", I see that people are rather confused with the subject of sexuality itself.

    I agree, but it would become exhausting at one point especially if nobody answers. I looked (randomly at Q&A of some people), their questions are barely answered (1, 2, 4) and they keep on asking the same kind of questions.
