Why and Why?

Two types of people and how they react to WHY?

First Type:

  • If you are a seeker:

You are curious to learn. You want to know the context so that it helps you in future. You do not accept things because someone said so.

  • If you are a giver:

You take a moment to understand the problem. You are not annoyed with so many questions coming at you and you have to patiently reply to them. You feel comfortable saying “I don’t know, but I can help to find out”. You believe in sharing as the more you share the more people learn and the organization grows.

Second Type:

  • If you are a seeker:

You like to ask a question because you have an opportunity to ask a question. You think you are skeptic but you are a cynic – almost all the time. Learning is not your objective. You are not keen on the problem but want to check if the giver is ready to handle your question or not.

  • If you are a giver:

You think most of the questions asked to you are naive or stupid. You expect people to know stuff and you get annoyed when you hear questions.
