    Default To have answers or to have questions?

    Imagine a parallel universe where humans came in only one of two forms, those who asked only questions, and those who provided only answers. A questioner could never answer, all his/her dialogue were questions, and an answerer could never question, only respond to a question posed.

    Which would you choose to be and why?

    Well, in order to be able to formulate a 'true' question, one must have some background knowledge/'answers'....but, in this breed, this is not so. Somehow, these humans only know how to either: find the holes, hence ask questions (without knowing the full premise of the context), OR, explain the holes, hence, answer questions (without knowing the full premise of the context, i.e., that a question was needed in the first place, aka, there were holes - recognizing that, they can't, because they only deal with answers).

    Questions fo sure. I want to learn about everyone and everything and know other people's perspectives. I can learn more by asking questions then providing answers.

    If I had all the answers, then I would have nothing to look forward to every day. Discoveries are what I live for. I wanna be the questioner.

    Tough choice. I'm always seeking answers, and the answers I give seem to just provoke more questions(both in others and myself) - so I guess I'm more a questioner. My thoughts and speculations are always unfinished. I regret the fact that only a tiny fraction of them ever get pondered to a considerable extent, and even fewer are ever presented to others(well that's probably a relief to the poor souls who have bare through them ).

    Yep, the one thing that really makes life worth living to me is the fact that there is still so much to learn. Definately a questioner.
