# Clarify the Question to Find the Answer

fleeting

In most of my day to day life, when I get to the answer, I realize that the question was not the correct question.

Therefore, I try now to ensure I formally understand the question. Generally, I find out that either the question is meaningless or that it is an intuitive solution.

I often see people listening to a question, finding an associated question simpler to understand and provide a non relevant solution.

See the concept of question substitution.
