Do You Know How to Ask a Question? with Christian Kram

For our tenth session of TestBash Home 2021, @christian takes to the stage to explore how we ask questions, what even are questions and how to deal with different communication styles.

We’ll use this Club thread to share resources mentioned during the talk and answer any questions we don’t get to during the live session.


Questions we didn’t get to

  1. Tehreem Fatima: How to deal with the imposter syndrome? because it gives thoughts that your question can be so very simple

Resources mentioned

Thanks everyone for the great questions at the talk.

How to deal with the impostor syndrome and easy questions: Well, I am no specialist on how to deal with that, so I’d first of all involve people who are more adept for that.
And, personally, I think asking simple questions, is an art. They are often down to the point and allow me as the receiver (to stay in that vocabulary) to get into answering instead of just responding. So I’d judge that actually as a skill :slight_smile:
There is a German idiom along the lines of “there are no stupid questions, only stupid answers” and I think that one is pretty true.


Thanks for answering this question.
