I was recently asked, “What do you find more fulfilling; love or respect?”
The more I thought about this question, the more troubled I became with the foundation that this question was built upon. The question is implying “What is most important to you AND that there are only 2 choices.”
Here is an example of what I mean:
A fruit vendor asks, “Which would you like more, an apple or an orange?” “An orange.” I’d say. Well, that means of the two, I like oranges more. It doesn’t ask what my favorite fruit is, it just assumes it must be either an apple or an orange. The truth is that I like grapes the best, to bad that wasn’t one of the choices. To bad I wasn’t asked what fruit I liked best.
