16. May others respond to what we say?
Do I have to have the last word or would it be helpful to get feedback?
17. When we ask a question, will we be willing to tell why we want to know the answer?
I may want to know why someone is asking questions. What are you going to do with the information? Why are you interested?
18. May a person decide to quit talking when they choose?
In most groups, I do not require people to talk. Some people learn better with their mouths open and others learn better with their mouths closed. Each person can decide which works best for them without pressure.
