I read everything first ... question+comments and even blog+comments before I respond. Doing so rarely changes my answer/opinion .. but if my answer/opinion has already been expressed, I'd rather say.. "I agree with (name of person) and give them a LIKE instead of spending time retyping and reiterating what they already said.
if there are already 721 responses and I simply want to throw another log on the fire, I do not read the other response.
If the question presented has PREDICTABLE responses such as "Should I go door knocking" I simply write my encouragement and prepare them for reality and do not read the repsonses of others.
I good question of fabric and thought. will compel me to read many if not all responses before adding my two cents.
Sometimes I just type 'Great question." and disappear. (no, I don't do that)
I've done it both ways. If I have a strong feeling about how to answer, I write my answer first.
I write my answer first and then check out other responses.
I do both, just depends on the question. On this one I just answered right away. On other questions about procedures, advice, etc. I'll look to see what's been posted. Sometimes it spurs a thought process.
I answer the question.
I know what I am going to say but I do read the others first before I post.
Blanca, this is an excellent question. I do not read answers until I have posted mine. I do not want my answer to be influenced by the answers of others. Not thinking anyone is right or wrong, I just want my opinion to be unbiased. Mark
I usually answer first, then check to see if others agreed with me.
Blanca, generally I write my opinion.
I just answer the question, then I look to see the other answers. It just seems more fun that way.
Mostly I answer right away, though I do occasionally read other answers.
I like to read the others...

I try not to let any of the other answers influence me so I just answer before looking.
I write mine first and then look at others
I'm guilty of answering and then reading other answers. Many times my answer is the same as others. Now let me read the rest of the answers.
Blanca Barajas Yes, most of the time I do.
It depends on the nature of the question.
I enjoy reading the answers as much as I do answering with my own opinions. I am here to contribute but also to learn.
Good morning Blanca. Sometimes, depends on the topic, but most of the time I do not.
Good Friday morning Blanca. I do not let others influence my thoughts so I do scan through the answers.
Usually I read all or most of the other answers.
I answer right away with an exception or two if I dont understand the question
I answer right away and that way I amnot influenced by any other answer.
I answer right away because I want it to be my own answer.
I usually just go with my first instinct and let it rip Blanca.
