    Question Can someone ask too many questions?

    I am thinking about opening this thread for a while.


    My natural style of conversation comes down to questions and answers.
    I usually start conversations with a question and it is normal to me that data I get is questioned further in my head and later they are returned to the owner in pieces. I can do that with personal convictions without too much problem. But I have learned that people in many cases don't like this.

    Also I have a problem with receiving facts since I almost always want more and deeper information.


    Any opinions or comments?
    I am pretty sure that many NTs will see themselfs in this.

    if someone spends too much of their time focusing on what they don't know, how can they utilize what they do?

    Actually, Anti, I don't think there is a limit. My curiousity is unlimited. But I seek a balance in asking for information and giving information.

    Are the questions fragmented, does the interviewee necessarily have a sense of the transition or pace?

    Do you progressively build up the complexity and depth?

    General to specific?

    Assuming your questions don't constantly have generally obvious answers, then no, I don't think one could ask too many questions.

    I tend to ask a lot of questions as well, and it can make some people feel cornered, like they're being drilled. Depends on the person. If they jump to the conclusion that you're asking questions to formulate a judgement about them, they're apt to get anxious and defensive, and not follow the conversation in the direction you'd hoped to aim toward. Or it may make some Feeling-Judging types overwhelmed.. I used to get like that, but it was mainly during debates regarding hard logic.. I needed some extra time to process, etc.

    Well, AntisocialOne, I have thought of a question for every sentence and most of the words you wrote. From all of those questions, I have actually formed a conclusion.

    Yes, someone can ask too many questions.
