The most important part of confusion, though, is not dismissing it. In order to take confusion as a gift, it must be used and explored; that is, questions must be asked. Many scientists in the past have found some unexpected outcome or phenomena, and were confused on why things turned out that way. Instead of dismissing it as some irrelevant data, they explored their confusion and asked questions, to which they tried to answer.
So, the next time you feel confused, take a moment to relax. Think about a question you want to ask, and go ahead and ask it! Above all, don't dismiss it!
