It’s good to talk using Open Ended Questions
Questions: Whether they are “open” or “closed”, they can help a person open up or help to close them down.
A closed question is one used to gather specific information – it can normally be answered with either a single word or a short phrase. An open ended question is one that is used in order to gather lots of information – you ask it with the intent of getting a long answer. So basically, open ended questions have no correct answer and require an explanation of sorts.
