A saying, attributed to the ancient Chinese philosopher Confucius goes like this: “The man who asks a question is a fool for a minute, the man who does not ask is a fool for life.” If you are having doubts, it means you are making efforts to learn something new. We can understand the importance of doubts and their timely resolution by looking at an example. Suppose there is a wooden stick. You can break it easily. Now if we make a bundle of sticks and try to break them together then it would be very difficult to break the bundle. In a similar way, doubts become very difficult when they pile up. Asking doubts or questioning is the basis of understanding, mastering, learning, and knowledge creation. Science starts with asking questions and seeking the answers.

Importance Of Asking Doubts

Sometimes, when the teacher is teaching a concept you may not understand that. This can happen because you did not ask the right question due to fear. But there is nothing to regret about asking a question because questions are asked in the exams from the same concept that you did not understand. So, it is good to clear your doubts early.

Makes You More Confident

Our confidence increases when we have a good hold on concepts. After asking doubts you become more clear about concepts and logic because your mind becomes more focused. This makes the concepts last long in your memory. When similar questions come to you again, you will be confident and able to solve them very easily. This is because you are asking questions and answering correctly in class, which makes you fearless. That helps to build a good image among the students and in the class.

Decreases Negative Marking

Exams like JEE Main, JEE Advanced, NEET, etc have negative marking when you answer the questions wrongly. That is one of the major factors why so many students are not able to obtain good marks. During exams, we get confused because we don't have clarity about the concepts or we have doubts. If we have discussed our doubts in class then we can answer the questions correctly. We can save ourselves from silly mistakes and decrease negative markings by asking the right questions and clearing doubts in the class.

Helps To Develop An Interest In The Subject

Some students like Math, some students Social Science, some students Science. An important advantage of building interest in a particular subject is that you are getting clarity in that subject. In other words, you are clear about your doubts and have a good hold on concepts so that you are able to solve questions. The habit of asking doubts attracts the focus of the teacher and creates a fear within you that the teacher can ask you questions and to prove yourself in front of the class you start investing time in that subject and it develops a circular loop. You end up with an interest in that subject.

Broadens Your Knowledge Horizon

Sometimes you are asking and discussing it. That helps broaden the horizon of your concepts, knowledge base, and logic. There are multiple methods to solve a question. For a particular case, one method is easy but it can be difficult for other cases. When you ask your doubts, teachers try to explain comprehensively using different ways that broaden your understanding. You also think again and try to find all the possible variations in the question and create their own database, concepts and tricks that broaden your horizon.

Helps To Master The Subject

Asking questions or doubts is the central point of knowledge creation and learning. You want to answer a doubt then first you require a good understanding and mastering of the subject and related concepts. It requires a lot of practice and hard work that makes you master the subject.

Fuels Creativity And Scientific Knowledge

Questions are fuels for innovations, scientific knowledge, and creativity. We are aware of the story of Newton, he was sitting under an apple tree. An apple was falling down when he asked himself why it is falling downward then after he proposed the universal law of gravity. That is the power of asking questions or doubts. Asking doubts increases your creative and scientific thinking. This also facilitates you to do analysis and diagnosis of your knowledge base.

Helps To Develop Interpersonal Skills

You can observe big personalities like businessmen, entrepreneurs, politicians, IAS officers, etc. who are good at interacting with people, asking good quality questions or doubts, and can express themself on the stage and in front of thousands of people very confidently. Sometimes people judge you on the basis of your doubts. This habit of asking good questions and doubts helps you to develop these interpersonal skills. If you want to be like them you must have these qualities.

Helping Others

There are other students who also face the same difficulties to grasp the concepts, they also have doubts but do not ask due to peer pressure, hesitations or fear. Your habit of asking doubts helps other students to understand the concepts, develop an interest in the subject, obtain good marks, develop interpersonal skills, decrease negative marking, and make others also confident.

In the present competitive world, you have to compete during board exams, entrance exams like JEE Main and Advanced, NEET, and other exams. To crack these exams you should remove every doubt at the earliest because it becomes very difficult to clear them when they pile up. If not clear then it can be a disaster for you.
