Have you ever experienced “Silence” when you asked someone a question?
Might you have been uncomfortable with their silence?

The average person waits only 2-3 seconds before rephrasing the question or answering the question themselves or just moving on. And strange as it may sound the average person has no idea that they do this!
How about you? Confronted with silence have you too quickly re-asked the question? Or restated the question in another way? Or maybe asked a second or even third question hoping they would...
