Not long ago, I was studying how to communicate better with my fellow human beings though a discipline called NLP. NLP stand for neuro linguistic programming, and was created by John Grinder and Richard Bandler. Within this journey were many enlightenings, one of which is the structure of questions. Usually, questions have an upward inflection at the end (American English). When a person uses different tones, that same question may sound like a statement, or even a command.
The topic today is the difference between an analog question and a digital question. A digital question is most often a yes or no question, where as a analog question is usually not so definitive.
So, depending upon what the question is, and how the question is stated, you may get different reactions from the person to whom you ask the question. Such as the difference between:
Will you wash my car? VS What would it take for you to wash my car?
So, what is my favorite question?
What would it take…?
