A Question Is Never An Act Of Agression
Some people tend to consider questions asked to them as so many provocations or accusations.
And let’s be honest, we can all react poorly when the subject matter is sensitive, our interlocutor is hostile and/or we are exhausted.
But we should keep in mind two realities: A question is a sign of interest and it provides an opportunity to present additional information and arguments to convince the individual asking it.
Thus, even if a question has a connotation of aggression, we should always use it as an invitation to communicate our point of view. Even a very negative question can prompt an exchange of ideas if we use it to our advantage.
