How to ask good hypothetical questions?
Sometimes we face recurring issues at the workplace, when a situation repeats itself and may need addressing at some point in the future. These situations are normally simple to ask here. We state the problem, we may or may not apply the answers.
Often at the workplace, we face situations unexpectedly, and have to respond impromptu. These could be asked here, but solutions are not that relevant anymore for OP, unless he wants to reflect on what is already done.
Finally, there are foreseen situations. When you expect people to act in some wrong way, either because they've announced it or you simply know them well enough. You might actually be wrong, and until it actually happens, you cannot know for sure before the event actually comes by and your response needs to be provided at the spot.
Reading the tour, a hypothetical case may seem closer to "Personal advice on what to do" than to "Specific issues encountered navigating a professional environment" or "Real problems or questions that you’ve encountered pertaining to a workplace". Which would mean tat these questions should probably not be asked.
However, for the person asking the question, the answers that could be found here would be very useful, and for other people searching questions for already available solutions, they may be just as good as the other ones.
Are there a few common practices or guidelines that could be advised to someone who intends to ask problems based on foreseen yet realistic situations?
