Ever ask a question you already know the answer to?
“How are you doing?”
“Do you need anything?”
“Want to get out of here?”
We actually do this all the time. We really do like being in a position of authority. The world is complex and humans just don’t have the capabilities to completely understand it.
How did we get here in the first place? Frightening to think about when we are talking about it on a scale of 13.5 billion years.
We desperately look for and take comfort in stable objects. We are attracted to them. The amygdala struggles to turn off. So, when we can find ground to put underneath our feet, we take it.
Dare to ask the questions that we have no idea the answer to. Appear incompetent and be okay with what others might say. Chances are they don’t know the answer either and are listening too.
