    This is sort of the flip side of what I was discussing in my post. I have a pretty hard time anticipating what questions people will ask if they’re way outside of my field, usually because those questions stem from lack of understanding.

    On the other hand, I completely agree…asking questions is good and makes you think out where you’re going with things.

    A good article. Well stated. It’s always a good idea to ask what questions could be asked and then figure out the answers.

    My worst such experience was in pitching a new chemical plant to the Executive Committee. The Vice President responsible for the company hospital asked what effect the project would have on the hospital.
