When Questioning is Met with Disdain

Sometimes questioning is met with disdain.

Perhaps this is because of the timing or tenor of the questioning, or perhaps the questioning awakens a sensitive place in the person who is receiving the questions.

When questions are met with disdain, it's good to take a pause, assess the situation, and note what's happening. What did the disdain look like:
  • angry response
  • silence
  • negative looks
  • disinterest
  • sarcasm
  • threats
For those who ask tough questions, this is important to consider.
