As a Western society, we are biased towards answers.

"...Answers settle matters and tell us it is safe to move forward. Questions are troublemakers, poking holes in ideas and plans. The questions are also powerful techniques for marshalling facts, exposing vulnerabilities, and stretching imagination. How can we make this work? How can we make this work better? What is the worst thing that can happen? ......the simple fact gathering...Who? What? When? Where? Why? And How?..."

Don Moyer, 2005

Through probing and questioning, alternatives are generated and the possibility of discovering creative solutions is enhanced, eg young children's approach

WHY? WHY? WHY? WHY? WHY?

This is a powerful question and questions are

- provoking thought

- challenging assumptions

- generating energy

- focusing on inquiry and reflection

- touching on a deeper meaning

- evoking related questions
