Why should we ask instead of assuming?

In a business transaction to assume instead of asking the right questions, it could result in a significant monetary loss due to a lack of information. If one of the parties failed to explain themself and the other party assumed instead of asking the right questions, both parties fail to conclude a deal, that could be very profitable.
As human beings that we are, we have limited knowledge. Therefore it not shameful to ask questions.
Before assuming that a client meant something, be more direct and ask as much information as you can. In a meeting, when you ask questions, you show interest, intelligence, and wisdom, because you are gathering information before giving an answer or making a decision.
