Do you sometimes ask questions that you already know the answer to?
Heck yeah! It's a great way to gauge someone's trust factor. If I ask you a question and I know your answer is a lie, I'll have a hard time trusting you after that. I do this with a lot of people depending on how close they are to me or how much I have to deal with them.
Yes. Sometimes it's to prove an unspoken point or to gauge what general consensus is. For example, I asked a question a short while ago about marital traditions and whether or not they were out-of-date. I already had a solid opinion on it, but I wanted to see where the general population leaned. I'm incurably curious.
Of course. As a teacher, I did it all the time.
It's always more effective to bring the answer out of a student, than to tell them the answer. That Greek guy, Socrates did it a lot.
