“Computers are useless, they can only give you answers.” – Pablo Picasso
There is a wisdom and pedagogy in questions themselves. When you are with someone who wants to know something you know, don’t teach them, ask them questions.
- Your questions have the magic to open the mind of that person and to find the answers within themselves. As a result, nothing you could ever teach them will have the power of their own discoveries.
- On the other hand, if you want to learn something, don’t ask for answers, ask for questions. The better the teacher the fewer the answers and more targeted questions will take you to discover all the answers.
