Hey PH! 👋 Did you ever feel like you know the answer to your problem but just don't know how to get it out? I know how you feel. ***But first, I gotta give a shoutout to @chrismessina for hunting Socrat! 🙌 I'm Najeeb and I'm excited to share my latest project with you all! They say success leaves clues. So I started paying attention to startup experts and how they thought about problems. People like @JamesClear @andrewchen @naval @mwseibel @jason @eriktorenberg. What I found out was that the sharpest minds in startups and business ask questions differently to help run their company. So I started collecting these questions. 👨🏽‍🏫 For years whenever I'm hanging out with friends or at events, I always ask these questions to speakers, to get to know others better or even solve my own problems. Whenever I ask these questions, I always get complimented on my questions.👍🏽 I've been sharing these questions with friends privately if they ask, but now I want to make it more open allowing others to learn & use these questions from expert wisdom. So I challenged myself (non-programmer) to build a platform for these questions using no-code. 👨‍💻 After learning from a handful of no-code videos, I wanted to build a platform that's more open similar to the Agora (gathering place in ancient Greece) to bring together question lovers and inspire critical thinking like the great teachers of the past. Socrates was one such teacher who taught to explore complex ideas, to get to the truth of things, to open up issues and problems, to uncover assumptions, to analyze concepts. He was of the greatest teachers who taught by asking questions and thus drawing out answers from his students. Thus inspired by Socrates and his Socratic Questioning method, Socrat was born. 🎉 Socrat allows you to discover questions from startup experts and influencers to help solve your problems. These are insights from designers to marketers to CEOs. It's been 3 months in the making and it's an ongoing project that I'm aiming to improve constantly. I hope you explore the site and find the questions to help you overcome any problems that you have. If you have any good questions to add, I'd love to see you add it. For hunters only, I'm giving FREE lifetime access to Socrat. But only for the next few days. So explore the site and let know which question is your favorite to ask. Mine is "What would you do if you knew you wouldn't fail?" Also, if you have any suggestions/feedback at all on how to improve the site or even a slight change, I'd love to hear it 🙂 ❤️ Thanks for reading so far Najeeb "Questions" Khan
@kowsheek_mahmood Thanks for the feedback leading up to it :)
@itsnajeeb The addition of all these questions is awesome 😃👌

I like this data set, the who these people are the originated the question, the context or category the question is in and the potential impact it has in terms of value is interesting. If it had an API i could source the questions into apps or experiences I made to prompt people, sharing the brand equity of the person who said the question into my concepts (curious about permission but ahh well).

Pros:

Well it appears to be a context + person + notion data gold mine.

Cons:

I feel its not good enough just to propose the questions without having some level of interactivity.

Thanks @floozyspeak for the insight. I'm planning on having a discussion thread on the questions itself, but for now it's only on the question collections pages. That's a great point about the API, thanks for suggest it 🙂
Hey Najeeb, true that asking questions play a vital role in gathering wisdom and knowledge. Curious to know what/where is the source for these questions? I did a similar project called Really Good Questions. Check it out: https://www.producthunt.com/post... Also what no-code tools did you use? Anyways congrats on the launch 👏👏👏
@5harath Hey Sharath, thanks for commenting. Yea I like your project Really Good Questions! We should collab in the future :) I used bubble to create it. I wanted to make sure there's source for each question so on each page, there's a button at the bottom of every question page to see the source called "View Article". I should perhaps make that more visible
Congrats on your launch! It's a great to see another Bubble app on PH :)
@estraschnov Thanks Emmanuel, I've got a fever and the only cure is more Bubble! :)

I’m excited about Socrat because there are many times when I’m going to a meeting or a social situation where I want to ask deep and illuminating questions but can’t remember my favourites that I read somewhere. I want to be able to capture these questions based on context and reference them quickly. Human connections are what make our lives worth living and powerful questions help us build those connections.

Pros:

A platform for capturing powerful questions that drive results

Cons:

More questions and categories will help broaden the target audience

@snasirca Thanks for the review, really appreciate it. Adding more categories does make more sense 👍
