Unask the question

Not all questions need to be answered as asked.

The classic example: "Do you want red or white wine". The question has an assumption built-in.

When you hear a question being asked, check it for assumptions that narrow the range of answers you can give. Then unask the question. Ask:

Can you ask that again, without these assumptions being present, please?
