” How frustrating it can be on the receiving end of kids’ questions. The adult, in this case, becomes exasperated, insecure, aware of his own ignorance, and reminded of his insignificance – all because of that word why”
Questions are disliked in the world for multiple reasons
- shows our ignorance or lack of knowledge
- it’s seen as rebellion
- people are trying to be manipulative and control other so questions show their intent
- and much more.
For this blog, we will discuss how the questions makes us aware of our ignorance. If you don’t know something, you don’t want anyone asking you questions because then it will show your lack of knowledge. I am not sure why someone feels or thinks that they will know everything; there is NO WAY SWAY that you will know it all. There is always something to be learned.
However, in today’s world, people feel like if they don’t know an answer to one question then they don’t know nothing at all. That’s not the case, you just don’t but you could know. I remember one of my college teachers told us to say, I don’t know but I would like to learn. So just because you don’t know anything doesn’t make you ignorant, but if you are unwilling to learn then that’s on you.
In conclusion, questions reveal our lack of knowledge but they can also be a guide to things we should know about. So what if I don’t know at the moment, but I will soon.
