  • What makes a good question?
  • How do you sit down with an expert and elicit these uncertainty distributions?
  • On what are the judgments based? How do we capture that?
  • How do you know when your expert is "done" with estimating a particular quantile? What is the elicitor's role in trying to determine that? What are different approaches you might take?
  • What do you do if you think your expert is gaming or being "strategic" in some way?
