Questions direct conversations

The person asking the questions usually gets to direct the conversation.
Speaking to someone is like landing in a random Wikipedia page, and as they speak certain things are clickable; family life, work, growing up, troubles, joys, hopes, fears. You get to explore those things by asking about them.
So, at that point, even though one person is doing most of the talking, the other is doing most of the directing.
Who’s directing your conversations?
