    A professional says that I am good at asking certain people questions but need to learn to ask others as well.
    Maybe this is something we all need to work with.

    I actually ask tons of questions. I find it easiest to stay on script in a conversation if I do very little talking, and questions elicit lots of talking from the other person.

    I get told that I ask too many questions. People get angry because they think I'm invading their personal space or questioning their intelligence, when in reality I'm just curious about a lot of things and don't even expect an answer if someone doesn't want to answer me.

    I ask questions, but only about things I'm really interested in.

    I sometimes ask a lot of questions when I don't have the full picture, or because I want to know the details of things, I ask about small details to try to understand it or imagine it in my head beyond what a person would normally consider necessary, and that is, for many people, too many questions. I often find small details interesting, that other people don't bother about or don't notice.
