Repeating Questions are a form of Inquiry, preferably done with a partner, where a question is asked and answered repeatedly, usually for a given amount of time. The questions can be answered in one of two possible ways:
- Right off the top of one’s head; or,
- Using the previous answer as a springboard to take the next answer deeper.
The form is as follows:
- Partner A asks Partner B the question;
- Partner B answers;
- Partner A says, “Thank you,” and asks the question again.
The process is repeated until the allotted time expires. Partner A needs to remain absolutely poker-faced, as any response shown interferes with Partner B’s answering. When time is up, the two partners trade places, with Partner B asking and Partner A answering.
