You may have already guessed but I LOVE questions. ๐Ÿ’–


Have you ever noticed how a simple question can change your thinking in an instant?


Take the question I just asked you. As soon as you read it, did you feel your brain kick into action and try to find the answer?


Itโ€™s cool, right? Itโ€™s almost as though the question hijacked your brain. But why does this happen?


Questions trigger a mental reflex called โ€œinstinctive elaborationโ€. This causes the brain to have a laser like focus and shut out all other thought processes. And, the more demanding we find a task, the more single-minded we become when trying to address it.[ยน]


Asking questions impacts future behaviour. Back in the 1990s, a study conducted with over 40,000 participants[ยฒ] found that asking if a person was going to buy a new car in the next half year, increased actual car buying rates by 35%.


Also, the more our brain contemplates a behaviour, the more likely we are to engage in it. But also, just thinking can change our physiology. For example, if we think about sucking on a lemon, we experience a weird sensation in our mouth, even though the lemon is not there.


Ok. Technically the last point was not about questions but itโ€™s still cool. ๐Ÿ˜Š


Iโ€™d love to hear - What is the coolest question you have heard and why is it so amazing?


(Haโ€ฆ.see what I did there?)


Anyway, email your questions to hello@katechristiansen.com.au and Iโ€™ll pull them together for everyone to use.
