I often say how testers ask questions, as do many testers out there. That is our job.
The hard thing is that sometimes people just don’t get it.
But then Jason Fried pointed out this quote from a guy called Clay Christensen (Never heard of the guy, but I think I will spend some time learning about him now!)
Questions are places in your mind where answers fit. If you haven’t asked the question, the answer has nowhere to go. It hits your mind and bounces right off. You have to ask the question — you have to want to know — in order to open up the space for the answer to fit.
I point this out, because I find it interesting.
I also point it out because testers ask questions alot.
And we ask questions because we want to find out where the answer goes, to place it somewhere, to make sense of it and to open up further space for us to understand what we are testing.
If nobody else is asking these questions, then what does that mean?
Or are other people asking these questions too?
