Are you one those people that everyone comes to for advice? and if yes would you say your good at giving advice to others? or do you avoid giving advice because you feel that your not so good at advice giving? My definition of a good advice giver listens to the problem accesses the problem and gives advice thats appropriate and in return the advice recive got some positive results from that advice. here's my answer to this one yes most of the time I'm pretty good at giving advice though no ones perfect, though sometimes I prefer not to give out advice because once a person figures out that your pretty good at it they'll always come to you with there problems and they forget that you have your own issues sometimes. So are you a good advice giver?

I can say most of the time, even though generally I tend to not take my own advice. I know, bad move on my part. Though I can give advice. A lot of times it comes naturally, usually because I've been in the situations and can relate, other times I can't. It just all depends really on each situation that comes up. However, should someone come to me for advice I don't turn them away. Yes, we have our own issues and I'll admit to not being a stranger to issues, but regardless of this fact, I don't s Even if I'm conflicted with my own issues.hun or turn away anyone deserving of it. Because sometimes, by helping someone else with their issue they actually help me to resolve my own.

I'm not that good in giving advice. I would say i'm just moderate at giving advice. The bad thing is people come up to me and ask for an advice and i always end up just listening to them without giving any and just consoling them.

Most of my friends say that I am, and because of that, I think that maybe I really am. =) I like listening to their concerns and hearing their stories. I don't say anything unless they are done talking. After that, I review what they told me in my mind and try to assess what's the right thing to say. But yeah, like what you said, no one's perfect. Which is why I always tell them that I'm not sure that I'm saying the right thing but that's what I'll do if I'm in their place.

I don't know how good I am but I know I am not terrible. I have given advise before to my friends and also strangers especially if its in the category of something I did and had a bad result I will quickly share it with others so that they won't make the same mistake I have made.

I give that right to all my friends who in some way have came to ask for a piece of my opinion, idea, tips and etc.They can tell whether I have given them the answers to all their questions when they were restless and helpless... There is something I disagree, about that you prefer sometimes not to give good advice because you don't want them to always come to you...Don't choose a time when to give out advices, whether you have your own share of struggle it doesn't mean you stop giving good advices when they needed it most. If you have the passion to help others don't deprive them of coming to you to seek for your good advice. And don't choose people to whom you give your advice.

I think that I have always been good at giving advice. I try not to be judhmental. I lok for the best possible reasons and solutions to any any words I offer. I am not always wise enough to follow my own advice though.

I think yes. :D Before giving an advice, set yourself to persons' situation. Then probably, you will always end up in correct or right decision. :)

I like to think that I am, particularly if someone is experiencing a similar thing that I have been through. I like to comfort people and make them think that things will be okay. I don't know if people acyually listen to my advice or take anything from it, but I hope I help out in some way.

I use to give advices to problematic persons in high school and college. Sometimes I feel I am good at it. They often give me feedbacks on how my advices had helped them a lot. Its a good feeling when you help people. One of the priceless feelings in life is the feeling after someone thanked you for the good deeds you have done to them and seeing them change for the better because of you.

I don't mind giving advices to other people. If they want my advice, I'll gladly give them some. I can't really say I'm good at it though.

When it come to given advice i'll say am quite good for other and the things i tell them at times are quite straight forward so at that present time when i give you the advice because yoi needed it you'll be mad at me or angry because i just said the better truth. I give advice to people who i know could follow it not people who just want to hear my views and maybe make enimity with me or the other side this advices are to expensive and hurts your feeling when you are wrong never kills you because you'll definately come and say am sorry i never took or followed your advice.

I think I'm good at giving advices to other people. But when it comes to my own issues, it's hard for me to come up with a practical solution. I think it's easier to come up with solutions to the problems of other people because you only get a glimpse of the problem from the surface.

of course yes, my good is enough for people will listen to my dear advices. I want if i give adives the person who problem will listen to me, but now i realized that good advices sometimes harm people who have problem because according to our guidance counselor it is better to give people an options to choose rather than giving advices.

I might say I am good in giving advice but the impact of my advise varies to every person that is seeking my advice..There some who listen and ignore my advice and there some who listen and follow.

I think I can describe myself pretty well in just one line "I think I give good advice, I just suck so bad at communicating it!" ;) Such is life. :)
