People in the United States are conditioned to avoid looking bad. This conditioning begins when we start going to school and continues throughout our lives. In school individuals learn to avoid asking questions for fear of looking bad, appearing ignorant or unjustifiably stupid. People need to break free of this conditioning and start asking more questions because by doing that they can open up for themselves a brand new world that was previously unavailable to them. People will be able to learn by asking questions, than using application from the answers given to them. By doing this the discomfort felt by asking questions because of the fear of looking bad will be a thing of the past.
