too scared to ask ‘stupid’ questions?

“If we can see that questions are linked to innovation and problem-solving, why are so many of us reluctant to ask them?….”

“A recent University of Michigan study found that people in business are generally loathe to raise questions—primarily because they fear that anyone who asks fundamental questions will be perceived as incompetent or uninformed. And if anything, this problem seems to worsen over time as people gain more experience and expertise in their fields. After all, experts know they’re supposed to supply answers, not more questions.”
