The All Time Champions of Asking Questions

“Kids are the all-time champions of questioning. What could

you gain by imitating the innocence and curiosity of children

who are completely determined to get an answer.”

Anthony Robbins, Self-Help Author, Speaker and Consultant

 

As I see it . . . . . . .

 

The all time champions of asking questions

 

Hands down it’s children . . . . They learn it at an early age and perfect as they go.

 

Young children have that look of wonder in their eyes . . . . and an inquisitive mind to ask why. They have to ask questions to find the answers to their why. They have the determination to get the answer even when they have to ask more than one time or more than one person. 

 

Young children should be encouraged to ask questions . . . . and when they are asking their questions, it will grow into knowledge that they will use through-out their lives.

 

A child’s question is pure in thought and comes from the heart and in the need to know.

 

A lesson from a grandparent is when you engage a child in a conversation and answer their questions they learn how to effectively communicate and they will continue to ask questions through-out their lives.

 

The all time champions of asking questions . . . . are children and by answering their questions they will continue to ask why.

Lou, what causes us to lose the ability to continually ask "why?" Enjoy your day!

You are right, and because of that, they are very fast learners.

Lou- I love this! Were it not for some of the questions that have been asked, we might not have the iPhone, many of the medical innovations, and many other inventions that have helped us!

Lou, great topic!  Such a simple process to learn about others and yourself.  In this day and age of trying to capture the attention of our audience, we forget ONE very important aspect of discovering their needs!  The skill of asking the right question!  Children, are a great example of NO FEAR in asking the right questions or inquiring questions!

Good morning Lou,

Asking questions come so naturally to children..they are full of questions that often begin with "why" and "how come?" They are like sponges soaking up everything around them and it's our pleasure and job to encourage that sense of wonderment!!

Very true. Kids can ask the most unexpected questions.  Then there is the old TV show which showed "Kids say the darndest things!"

Lou,

Clarifying questions are always appropriate. The dumbest question is the one unasked.

Having my grandsons here with me three days a week, I am asked a lot of questions.  I enjoy the conversations that are a result of their questions.   It's amazing what their minds are capable of!

If only we would keep that sparkle of curiosity in our eyes longer! Somehow, curiosity is extinguished for many, but keeping that window of wonder open ... lifelong learning.

I think the most common mistake real estate (and all) sales people make is jumping into a sales presentation. I learned the secret to selling when I was nineteen, and it has served me well for the past fifty years. It is simply this -

Find out what they ALREADY want, show them how you can give it to them, and they will buy it every time.

Simple. Ask questions like children. Listen. Think about how you can give them what they ALREADY want. THEN, talk!

I agree with Donnie - ask before telling. It's the easiest way to connect with the client. Ask what they want and then tell them how you can provide it.
