The idea that underlies this taxonomy is that types of questions may be classified according to the intentions or goals the questioner pursues. It is proposed that there are two main groups of questions: one consisting of those questions which are asked when a problem has to be solved ('problemzentrierte Fragen') and a second one containing types of questions which are asked by a speaker if he wants to get some information about a person ('personenzentrierte Fragen').
