Here is a great example of asking questions with a journalist asking Richard Feynman a question, where Feynman points out how the question is difficult to answer
Side note, that might not be the best example video. I only watched the first 30 seconds, but in that clip Richard was being way too literal and not understanding the perspective of the person asking in the common vernacular. As in, we know Feynman is supposed to be the smart one and not the interviewer. But, Feynman can't understand what it means to not know. If you can't learn to communicate with "lesser minds" it's easy enough to argue your mind isn't that great either.

What anyone who understands anything about humans would read from the first 30 seconds of that clip was a display of defensiveness at best or arrogance at worst. Ironically enough, 99% of people who spend time with real people can see that. D'Oh! | :doh: Also, you may want to study body language because it's real and useful when reading people.

Love him or hate him, Neil deGrasse Tyson does a much better job of communicating. Which is probably why he's so well-known. Point of all this is, Richard did not come out in this scenario looking like a super genius or even decent at being a conversationalist.
