Q: What's the perfect answer to: "You know what your problem is?"
A: "A simple 'I do, thank you' leaves the person with no opening to expound further."
— Lisa Caputo, chairman and CEO of Citi's Women & Co.
"There's no correct answer to a trick question. Just say, 'No, and I'm doing fine without knowing.'"
— Rudy Rasmus, pastor of St. John's United Methodist Church in Houston
"'Don't tell me, or I'll have no more mystery in my life.' Glibness aside, if you have the self-possessed fortitude to listen to the answer without defensiveness, you will most likely learn something about yourself—and about the person who's got you all figured out."
— Faith Salie, host, public radio's Fair Game from PRI with Faith Salie podcast
