Questions and Comments

I prefer questions to comments. I’ve always had this preference.

Questions entice me, interest me, and get me engaged. Comments bore me.

When I’m with someone who’s a clear comment person, it takes a lot of work to stay with them. And even when I try, I find it easier to leave them, to disengage, to go elsewhere mentally.

If there is a question on the table, there’s something I can focus on, something I can turn to, something that is, by it’s nature, agitating a part of me.

There’s nothing wrong with being a comments person. It’s just that I’m a questions person. I’m closer to people when questions are involved. I’m more distant when things are simply said.

We’re different and it’s worth knowing as much as possible where we fall along such life lines.
