To ask well is to answer

The Jungian analyst Robert Johnson writes, “To ask well is virtually to answer.”

He’s writing about our internal process of individuation, navigating our internal landscape in search of wholeness. 

Also true? It’s how we best connect with others, how we can calm someone down who is emotionally triggered. A true question – one ‘asked well’ – engages the frontal cortex, the connector part of the brain. 

If you want to influence and make a change, ask well. It’s like answering, but better.
