“Hmm.. Good question!”
Guess what you will hear next?
“.. But I don’t know the answer..”Most of the times people end up saying “Good question” only when they do not know the answer for the same.
I used to wonder is it because they never thought in that angle, they say that it is a good question? (Are they so confident of themselves?) or is it just to satisfy my ego and stop me from pestering them more?
Whatever the reason might be, it is quite funny for me to hear someone saying “Hmm… good question! I dont know the answer”. When you do not know the answer, how can you say that it is a good question?
I will really feel happy or satisfied about my question/learning only when I hear “Good question.. let me explain!” (of course followed by a reasonable explanation/answer) 😉
How about you?
