To live in the question

Asking questions and being curious was mentioned quite often throughout the conference. Bo Seifert showed how the number of questions that people ask on a usual day, radically drops when age increases. At the age of 5, children ask 120 questions a day, at age 6 they ask only 60 questions a day. And at the age of 40, there are 4 questions a day to remain. What would that do for innovation? Research of Sanne Akkerman showed that asking questions about the questions, instead of answering them, is an important aspect of collaborative learning. Anne Kirah in her keynote added to this point that we have to learn to “live in the question”. We shouldn’t always directly jump to answers and solutions. The question itself is such a rich thing.
