Another great question. Man we have some insightful people here!
Yes, I've asked questions of guides on behalf of my sitters and the guides pause to discuss. Sometimes they do not agree on an answer. For example, if the sitter asks, "Should I eat an apple or an orange?" (you know, as a simple example) the guides can't answer because what they want is for you to eat a vegetable so your question is not a good question. And sometimes one guide will be like, "Yeah, go out with the guy, it will be quite a learning experience" while another guide is saying, "He's abusive. Don't go down that road. It will take years to recover." This sort of disagreement was unexpected.
This is why I like to first download all the info the guides want to give you before we get to your questions, so they get their say first. They know you're coming and they usually know what you want them to address, so they cover that in the first 5-10 minutes.
I have also had guides go quiet on me. They won't even tell me why they won't answer. I am at the mercy of what they tell me (or don't tell me).
Sometimes I am told that they cannot answer a question because the sitter needs to work it out for themselves. But they will usually tell me why so at least I can convey that to my sitter.
And guides are so differnet. Some are just so chatty and witty and some are stoic and logical and analytical. I am still exploring all there is to explore out there. I'm sure I've just scratched the surface.
