The question is just as important as the answer – Charlie Rose (Talk show host and journalist)
I’ve always asked a lot of questions.
I’ve had more than one first date where I was asked if I was really a police officer.
I’ve never been a police officer, but I did consider it when I was leaving school.
Instead I started my career in journalism — another obvious job for someone with a big penchant for questions.
So I’ve spent a big part of my life asking all sorts of questions, and being deeply interested in how people answer.
The trouble is I don’t always leave space for others to ask me anything. And until very recently, I never asked myself any of the probing questions that I so easily ask others.
Does that matter?
