What’s a great question?

By Nic Price on 18 October 2005 — 1 min read

If someone says “That’s a great question” – is that because they have an answer to it or because it’s a great question?

[Edit] I should clarify… I was thinking of interviews I’ve heard on the radio or seen on tv. I can’t remember hearing or seeing an interviewee say “Now that’s a great question” and not answer it.

  • Actually, I often find that people say ‘thats a good question’ when they don’t have answer for it – normally because it has caught them off guard (and possibly because they are trying to buy some time! :))
