To create a desired outcome requires you to think non-linearly, ask intelligent questions and tweak your thought patterns

To ask the right question is already have the solution to the problem? Carl Jung. Hey, everybody, this is Vaishali, and today's episode is intelligent questions create. What does that mean?
It means that the way in which you pose a question reveals what route you think is going to get you to the destination, or whether or not you will get to the destination. And most of the times, it's linear route. So if this happens, then this will happen. And it has a bias of the past.
And if you want to learn a little bit about historical bias in terms of making decisions, then you can listen to the previous episode, which is episode number 16, 'The impulsive instinct.'
So today, I'm going to talk a little bit about the types of questions. And I'm kind of going to classify them into different types of questions, and how, by judging the question, you can almost tell the thought pattern of what somebody is trying to create or trying to get to a particular point.
Also, by tweaking or changing the questions, you can actually unravel different routes to be able to get to your destination. And I have learned this by doing over, I probably have done over 7000, somewhere between seven and nine thousand readings. And when I first started out, I would spend a lot of time in getting the questions correct, because the reading is only as good as the question that has been asked.
So if you do not ask the proper question, then the reading will show whatever it was that you asked for. So I'm going to give you the types of questions and a couple of examples of each one. So that you can kind of get a little bit of an idea of what this actually means in terms of real life. So the first type of questions or question is outcome question. In an outcome question, people are trying to find out what will happen.
So for instance, I'll give an example of someone who is just trying to test something out. Let's say they're trying to test out a reading. So the outcome question would be what will happen to me in the next five to seven days? And when you ask this kind of a question, the answer you will get is going to demonstrate the most prominent event of the next seven days.
This type of a question, it doesn't really require any knowledge of any prior circumstances or any future circumstances or anything that you're working on. It's more like no knowledge of any present circumstances. And by looking into it, the future can actually be seen or predicted.
For instance, if someone had come and ask me sometime in March, like Will I be going to work in the last two weeks of March? And most likely, I would have said no. So this would mean that the person either gets scared, because they will think that they are out of work, or they think something else happens.
So the outcome question in this particular scenario would need a little bit of reference, and without the reference, it's going to be difficult to completely gauge what the answer means. So even though the answer would be correct, to be able to gauge the answer would require more information. And in order to get that, you have to just keep digging deeper and deeper into different questions. So that is an outcome question.
For instance, if you're an entrepreneur and you're planning a launch, the outcome question can be 'Will might want to be successful?' So, that's not really a very good question because it kind of requires the definition of success for some person, or for some people, it could be that they make $500. And the launch would be a success.
And for some people, they may make $5,000 and would still not be a success. And for some people, they would make 50,000, And they would still say it's not a success. So everything is relative. So, 'Will my launch is successful,' is not really a great question, or a great way to ask a question.
So that's an example of what an outcome question should not be. So the next type of question is destination question. In a destination question, people know the destination, and they want to be able to figure out or find out whether or not they will reach the destination.
So for instance, let's say it was September 11 2001, and someone had asked the destination question. And they were on the airplane from Boston to San Francisco, I believe, 'Will I get to San Francisco on time.'
And in that particular scenario, the destination question would have shown an answer that probably not, it would have probably shown some violance, which would have alerted you to either change your flight or not take the flight. So that is a destination question.
Another type of question can involve a timing in it? So for instance, let's just go with the example of the launch, will I be able to launch this project by the end of November? That is a destination question. In this particular case, it is actually a good destination question. Because you're specifying the outcome, which is 'Will I be able to launch?' And the second one is you're specifying the date by the end of November. So that's a great destination question.
The next type of question is what is known as a route question. In a route question, people are trying to figure out how to get to the destination. For instance, let's go back to the example of the launch. And let's say that the goal of the launch is 10,000. So the route question would be which marketing strategy will take me to a $10,000 launch? And it could be that it involves Facebook groups, or it could be that it involves being on media, on the television.
Or it could be that it just involves networking with your friends and just having a get together. So that's a route question, what can I do? Another example of a route question would be like, let's say, you are planning a launch, and you're only looking for 10 people because you're selling $1,000 to each person, $1,000 worth of product that is. So what can I do to find these 10 people?
And this would be a route question where you're trying to figure out what kind of route you should take. So that's a route question. The next type of question is a timing question. Timing questions are the most popular type of questions for anyone who is involved in spiritual or metaphysical arts, whether it is reading via cards or crystal balls or clairvoyance or any other techniques, this even astrology this type of question is the most popular question and it takes a little bit of work to be able to to fine tune and answer, and to get a great and an accurate answer for the timing.
So in this particular case, it would be like 'When will it happen?' So when will I meet someone? Or when will I be ready to launch this project? Or when will I secure the funding of $10 million? On When will I get a grant of $50 million? So all these are timing questions.
And timing questions are great if they are asked or phrased properly, and instead of asking, when will it happen? There are ways to get around the question and to be able to navigate and find out whether or not this particular period, will this particular event will happen in this particular period of time. So that is a timing question.
Then there is what is known as intelligent questions. Intelligent questions are a little bit different. Because they are based on the answers from any of those previous questions that I mentioned, which is outcome questions, destination questions, route questions and timing questions. So, once you'll get an answer to something like, you know, what can I do to make this lunch, make 10 k.
So, in this particular case, once you know that you're not going to make 10 k based on the present circumstances. And that would be the intelligent question like what can I do to make this lunch go to 10 K, there has to be a great deal of certainty about the outcome from your previous questions. And it has to be something that you don't like, or it has to be something that you want to tweak. So that you can ask corrective questions to be able to correct the outcome, depending on the scenario.
And some things can be corrected, some things are difficult to correct. So I'll just go with the launch question. And then maybe I'll do September 11. Example just as an extension of one of the previous question. So the launch question would be, let's say that Amy comes to me and says, you know, will I make 5 k with my launch? And I say it kind of looks a little bit on the edge? I'm not sure if you'll make five k? And she asks, so will I make 10 k with my launch? And this time, the answer shows up as a clear No.
Now Amy definitely wants to make 10k with her launch. So an intelligent question would be, what can I do to make 10k with my launch? And what kind of support should I get? What kind of marketing strategies should I get? What else do I need to be in place? And a combination of all these questions?
So in essence, she's just trying to get to a particular destination. And she doesn't have enough resources to be able to get there. So it's almost like she wants to know what would be the best resources to add in order to get to the destination. So intelligent questions usually come with time, in terms of experiencing things and in terms of getting certain results, or having some sort of markers on time and not getting those results on time.
So that is intelligent questions. And then the last question, or the last type of questions is choice questions. And I'll give an example of this because I did this last night with a different group. And I was doing some live business psychic readings. And this particular lady, she was in Australia, and she had a choice question.
Her question was, I'm not going to remember the exact question, but it was something like this. Should I keep offering virtual classes by renting some places? Or should I buy my own place?
And when I looked at the question in the beginning, it looked like buying her own place did not seem to be very productive or efficient in terms of the outcome that she was trying to get. And she kept asking the question over and over because it almost seemed like she was trying to look for a particular outcome, or maybe she was very interested in buying a particular place or buying a place.
But the thing is, that really wasn't her question. Her question was more like, you know, what can I do to be able to get to a certain income level? That was the inherent ask in the question. But when she posed it is, on the way she posed it is, 'should I take route one or about two.'
So, sometimes it's possible that route one and route two may not get you to the destination. So it's what's needed is you would need a change in strategy or change in plan. Or you can change the question and find out what strategy will get you to your destination. So these are all the different type of questions.
And as you can see that depending on how you ask the question, or the way you pose the question, you will get some partial answers. And that's why I started with the quote of Carl Jung, which is to ask the right question is already half the solution to a problem. And once it's just a muscle that needs to be flexed and as you start flexing it you will kind of start to understand what it actually means and learn to flex this muscle and be able to expand in terms of creating questions.
And hence, the name intelligent questions create. So I hope you enjoyed this episode, and I would love to get feedback from you. You can go to my website, the uncanny link.com and post a comment on episode number 17. And I look forward to seeing you in the next episode.
