Be confident and use your charm

How to ask open-ended questions

In this article, we have suggested that you must ask open-ended questions during a conversion to keep going, but now you will learn how to ask open-ended questions. Let’s take a simple example,

One of your friends returns from a college trip, and you ask him, “Have you seen that museum?” What do you expect him to answer whether he will say yes or no. This is the end of the conversation.

But if you ask him, “Hey, you are back, how was your trip”? or “what places have you been through during the trip”? This is called an open-ended question.

What do you expect him to answer this time? He can’t answer in one word or sentence now. So instead, he will tell you about all the places they have visited, the rare things they have done there, funny things that happened on the trip

Ask follow-up questions

You should follow up with further questions to demonstrate that you are genuinely interested in the answer you receive. But, unfortunately, it’s usually our lack of sincerity and interest that ends our conversations.

For example, You are talking to your friend on the phone.

You: Hey, what are you doing today?

Friend: Working.

You: Then how it is going. it’s a follow-up question.)

Friend: Ya, it’s going smooth…

By asking a follow-up question, now your friend feels more compelled to provide a longer answer, thus keeping the conversation flowing.

Finding the right balance between sharing and asking

An excellent method for finding a harmonious balance between sharing and asking questions is the IFR method.

IFR means:

  • Enquire – Ask something you’d like to know about
  • Follow up – ask a follow-up question
  • Relate – To keep the conversation balanced, share something about you to break up your questions.

Example

Suppose you and your friend are walking in a park and

You: What kind of girl do you like to date? (Inquire)

Friend: I want to date an intelligent girl with a good height?

You: So, you are not dating Jessie (a familiar friend)! (follow-up)

Friend: Obviously not; she is just a friend.

You: But I like Jessie. I am going to ask her for dinner next week. (Relate)

Asking too many questions all at once is not a good idea.

If you want to keep a conversation going, don’t ask too many questions continuously; this habit of asking several questions irritates the other person. 

Example

Suppose you are waiting for someone sitting in a restaurant and due to some reason, that person doesn’t make it on time, then you must be angry, and you will start asking, where were you? Why are you so late? Why do you promise me? Etc.

But you should not do this; there can be some genuine reason; you must listen to her for once at least. These endless questions will irritate that person and will affect your relationship as well.
