The Truth About Stupid Questions

They lie to you. All the time. In business and meetings, in classes and groups…every time they tell you, “there is no such thing as a stupid question” they lie to you. Leaders, teachers, trainers…liars the lot of them.We know why they say it. To encourage participation; to bring out the topics for discussion; maybe even just to fill classroom time…but let’s be real. Let’s be purveyors of truth, even if our tongue is slightly in cheek.
It has to be one of two things. There either are, in fact, stupid questions; or there are stupid people asking questions. You decide.
Hey, don’t shoot the messenger. I’m just sayin’…

    I just hate stupid people. They should have to wear signs that say “I’m Stupid” Then we wouldn’t rely on them would we.
