When you answer a question do you assume things about the asker? Or do you simply answer the question?

  • I try to just answer the question, unless its a really stupid question

  • I usually just anwser the question, although sometimes I might assume things. I think it is hard to not answer certain questions without assuming anything.

  • sometimes you have to assume something because they left an important part of the question out. but in that case i always say i'm assuming blah blah blah and correct me if i'm wrong.

  • Answer the question. Sometimes I do assume so I'm guilty of that

  • Not unless they give a reason to assume something. Like if the question is, "How long after my missed period should I take a test?" I assume that they think they might be pregnant and are asking. But if the question is something like, "What do you think of lace?" I'm not going to assume that they like or hate lace, I just answer the question. I asked a similar question to this a few weeks ago lol. People kept harassing me because of questions I was asking that were just random thoughts.
