Trying Open-Ended Transactional Inquiry

I am the person who hates anything that is open-ended.  Open-ended questions/inquiries means there is no one "right" answer.  How can I judge my performance/actions/thoughts without this?  In my mind (OOPS, I mean brain), I visualize this process as trying to find my way out of the woods without a map.  There is a chance I might be safe.  However, the probability is greater that I will end up as being the dinner for a group of bears.  (You do know bears like Italian food.)

However, I have to admit that I am learning and find most of the conversations stimulating.  These summer institutes provide us to leave our comfort zone and try something different.  I will volunteer to be a facilitator next week.  I not sure about the topic.
