Student or Learner
Please make the following in red clear for me.
The response to a question provides either information or a lead. The lead meets a priority need or an information requirement, or it dead ends. Follow the lead; determine whether or not it yields something of higher importance than the initial question.
In the above, I'm not sure the difference between a priority need or an information requirement. I guess they are both some information the questioner wants. Does "a priority need" refer to some information that is more important than "an information requirement"?
No, the two items are not in competition. A priority need is something that someone needs badly. An information requirement is probably something that someone needs to know in order to decide what they want or what they can afford.
