Why Ask Rhetorical Questions? Why Ask Loaded Questions.

Rhetorical questions can be asked for effect. Rhetorical questions can be asked for reiteration or confirmation. But more likely than not while at work in Corporate America, rhetorical questions and loaded questions are asked by people who are up to no good. They ask questions that they already know the answers to. Whether they’re trying to call you out in a meeting, they’re trying to embarrass you, or are trying catch you in a lie, they’ll ask questions that they already know the answers to. Don’t take it personal. It’s what no good people do.

Stay in peace and keep it moving.
