People who ask our advice almost never take it. Yet we should never refuse to give it, upon request, for it often helps us to see our own way more clearly. What do you think?

I think advise shoud be given, weather it's taken or not, they will always remember it and maybe one day they will give it back as advise to someone else.

A word to the wise isn't necessary, it's the stupid ones who need the advice. I believe in this saying.But I do agree that by accepting a good advice we only increase our own ability.We should not discard advice given too soon but must ponder over it and try to see the other person's point of view.Why he said so and what is to be gained by the advice?

That's nice..Even though I always think that the wise must need an advice. Because he's not wise in all his way. Too many aspects in our life. In one aspect we are wise, but otherwise we aren't. Thanks for the opinion. I really appreciate it.

mostly, before asking advice they usually talk about their problems.. actually that's what they want. being heard by someone. no matter what your advices are, the main aim is being heard

yeah thats true most of the time they just overlook it and think the person is just trying to act smart. But in the end they are the one who are losing it out

I agree with you. We should not refuse another asking about advice from another. Sometimes the advice that we give to another person can have affected back to us. Sometimes it can be our reminding about things that already forgotten in our life. And ya, you're right it helps us to see our own way more clearly

I agree with you, offering our avise sometimes is not taken right then and then, but if we did not give it, then where would we be. People ask advise beacuse they dont know what they are doing themselves, not taking at time shows they might be too proud to feel they need it. But watch them and sooner or later you will catch them using your adive and they appriciate it.

I do agree with you there but a lot of people only need advice to provide a discussion point for themselves, a way to actually see they are going in the right direction, or a point to argue with to ensure that they know what they are doing. I think also, that since it is their situation that requires advice they are the ones who know it intamatly and who will have to live with the repercussions of thier actions so I dont think we can judge them for it. However, on the other side, I do think having a fresh outsiders point of view is needed, especially if a lot of emotional attachment has taken place and you cant make a practical and informed decision.

Interesting topic. I guess I never thought about it. Now, come to think, not sure any of them ask me .... I sometimes ask advice just to get confirmation of close to what I already do .... Sometimes, for a run liability, such as at work, for example, when you need to take a decision, and I'm not sure myself ..... However, in general, almost everything I do beheaded. Even if counsel is contrary to all the others. I do not know if anyone is listening to advice and implement them and, if it is contrary impulses from within. I wonder if it would be wise to proceed? Who gives you advice you do not give and spending, says a word, well said .... When you are in a position to seek advice (and here I do not mean dramatic situation in which you must choose between two pairs of shoes) are the only one who knows absolutely all aspects of the problem, so no one will give you absolutely objective advice .... not even parents ... So stay with the idea of justification of a decision already taken ....
