THE TRUTH ABOUT INQUIRY*

inquiry

Inquiry: n. collecting knowledge and/or facts about a subset(s) and frequently by getting answers to questions about samer subset(s)

 

Detective and crime movies and shows frequently demonstrate the inquiry process in action with the asking of many questions from humans potentially involved in the crime or its periphery. The questions often asked are what were you doing? at what time? and with whom were you with?

The time, place, and actions going on there along with material evidence are frequently used as the circumstantial evidence needed to proceed with further inquiries until the crime is solved.

Motive for most premeditated crimes is significant in weeding out extraneous facts and information not relevant to the crime. Why someone did a crime? is a very important question to ask and try to discover an answer to.

Often close relatives, close business partners, or friends of the murder victim are the primary immediate suspects to a crime and the more remote the relationship of the offender to the victim the less chance there is of finding the murderer or criminal offender.

One of the keys to a good inquiry is getting to get humans with a good reputation to answer truthfully and an ability to spot the liar and exclude his or her opinions or versions of what happened in actuality. Inquiry is only as good as the source reliability so cameras and audio pickup devices are frequently more reliable than I witness accounts of a crime.

Prisoner interrogation is another form of inquiry used in wartime circumstances and it has slightly different rules and one of them is no benefit of an attorney during questioning. Enemy prisoners are sometimes sleep deprived or exposed to annoying sounds to wear them down psychologically and make them prone to answer truthfully out of a basic desire to return to normalcy and not borderline torture techniques.

A daily or periodic inquiry into the activity(s) of offspring minors is an excellent way to keep monitoring them or keeping an eye on them and their activity and especially important is keeping an eye on the humans whom they are associating or communicating with. Use of cellphones to communicate is complicating the problem of keeping track of offspring and whom they are communicating with so it is important to maintain rights to view their social networking friends on a periodic basis too.

 A good technique for keeping a conversation going and extracting as much useful information as possible is to ask questions or basically inquire about someone and/or their activity. You have to be careful being suspected of being a busy body with all your questions but there are clever ways also of getting to a desired question indirectly first and then delivering the desired punchline question.

For example you can start off with a general open ended question suchas How was your vacation? followed later by more specific and probing questions suchas What interesting humans did you meet on vacation or Did you go alone on vacation? followed up by who did you go on vacation with. In effect start out with a general non privacy invasive question and then gradually work your way up to the perhaps personal private question which you would really want answered.

Finally asking relevant questions and intently listening to the answers with perhaps a nod of the head or saying that’s true, yeah, interesting, etc. all designed to communicate that you are listening intently and feel that the human has something important to say. Not only will you derive much unexpectedly useful information about a human but you will get some respect from them as well and they will feel important and respected by your polite engaged listening.

THE TRUTH ABOUT DECISIONS***

its_your_decision

Decision: n. making an impulsive judgment and/or a judgment after some thought and/or inquiry and frequently doing and/or not doing a subset(s)

There are basically impulsive decisions and delayed decisions which require some thought and/or inquiry first.

Many of our decisions are rather impulsive or spontaneous requiring little thought. When we are hungry or thirsty we eat or drink or wait till the appropriate time. When we are physically exhausted we impulsively rest and when it is bedtime we feel tired and go to sleep.

When asked a common or everyday question we respond impulsively and quickly with an answer and only have to think a little if the question is rather unusual and requires some thought. Cashiers and fast food workers respond or act rather impulsively and are only slowed down or have to think if there is a special request or special order.

A decision to solve a problem may be very impulsive but thinking about the problem and reaching a decision on what to do about it may be very time consuming and require some research.

Making a judgment may be impulsive or take some time but ultimately for every decision one must decide whether to do something or not do anything.

We may decide that we are not eating healthy but may not be willing to put in the time and effort to do anything about it and do nothing to change our eating habits. Not changing to better eating is also a decision so if you continue to eat badly then you are ultimately the one to blame for your inaction.

THE TRUTH ABOUT INDECISION

download (1)

Indecision: n. not being able to make an opinion and/or judgment after some thought and/or inquiry

Many of us have thought and researched a problem and still feel indecisive because we either don’t know what to do or have so many options that we have trouble choosing what should be the right one first.

We consult other humans with similar situations in life and sometimes find their decisive solutions to be acceptable in our situation also.

When in doubt or faced with indecision then try to find someone who has been through the same problem and has successfully resolved it. It can be your spouse, a close personal friend, or a licensed professional. Further research on the internet from humans who have had your problem and found solutions to it are also an excellent source to end your indecisiveness.

Finally, if you are faced with indecision it is just a question of more time needed to research a solution to your indecision and you may even conclude that the best decision is to make no decision at all!!!!!!
