5 Debugging questions Avoid questions that are… –Overly generic –False dichotomies (“do you prefer cheap items or high quality items?” … “it depends”) –Multipart questions (double-barreled) –Wordy –Unnecessary –Just because someone has done something doesn’t mean they remember it How many times have you looked at your phone today? 5
