I'm still thinking about Why people do not ask questions? and there are some updates:
One problem may be that people don't know WHO to ask. Also, what about the cost of finding: will it take me more time to find the answer than the time that finding the answer will save me?
My guess it is all about social identity. If you feel confident in yourself there is little to stop you asking a 'dumb' question. You are not concerned what others may think of you - you need to get an answer and move on.
Denham also provides a beautiful quote (I may be wrong here, because it isn't 100% clear) from Verna Allee:
Only questions have the power to beak our current midsets, they set in motion the deep relection needed to alter our beliefs.
I knew that the discussion would point to the learning domain earlier or later. I have something to add to this, but this post is getting too long :) [Mathemagenic]
