What does a good expert question look like on this site? Possibly related to Are hypothetical questions welcome? and How can we include the terminology of interpersonal skills into our site? .

The first questions set the tone for the site. If you ask high quality, expert-level questions, you'll build a site that attracts the experts and pros who will make it really successful. But if you ask beginner questions, survey questions, or social-conversation questions, experts and pros will not be interested.
Clearly, this is a different sort of SE site than many, but it seems like a lot of our questions so far are beginner-level: "How to assert boundaries in situation X?" or "I am a person who's not good at skill Y. What's the best way to use Y in situation Z?" A lot of our answers so far are "Establish strong boundaries" or "Talk to them about it" or "Don't be afraid to do what you already suspect is the right thing." These questions are fine, but I think we also want expert-level questions.
What does an expert-level question that is sufficiently specific and personal look like? An expert or well-read enthusiast who's very good at interpersonal skills should be able to ask questions to other experts. However, a lot of these questions might seem off-topic since they're less likely to be problems in the skilled expert's own personal life.
For example, could an expert ask a question about the difference between setting a boundary and issuing a manipulative ultimatum? Could they ask how to advise a patient who's struggling with interpersonal skills? Could they ask a really theoretical question they've been struggling with, like how to balance the concept of personal responsibility with the NVC principle that everyone is responsible for their own needs?
