There are two basic types of questions: binary and non-binary.
 
Binary questions are "closed" questions that can only be answered in two ways (yes or no, Tuesday or Wednesday, AM or PM, black or brown)
 
Non-binary questions are "open" questions that can only be answered through information exchange. Use binary/closed questions to qualify prospects and close deals. Use non-binary questions to learn how someone thinks and what they are feeling.
