    Default Do you like to give advice?

    I love giving advice thought I'm not good at following it.
    I'm just wondering which, if any, types are more inclined to be advice givers. I suspect it might be a Te/Fi thing.

    I love to do it as long as people are clear about their priorities.

    I don't like to give unsolicited advice, but only if I'm asked for. Apart from that, most of my advice is usually little more than pointing out the alternatives without offering my own opinion (because often I just have none). I guess I'm actually not that helpful

    Um... to some extent, I do it for a living. I try not to be pushy however. I have never had someone say it was bad.

    Good question though. This thread is making me think twice as to whether or not I should reconsider the approach in certain circumstances.

    I like to throw out a few options moreso than something more absolute like "I think you should do this . . ."

    I do hesitate to put thoughts into other people's heads, because potentially it distracts them from where they were originally headed, which can be good or bad.

    why would people need your advice if they were clear about their priorities?

    Because they're terrible planners and/or they're emotional to the point of being unable to piece things together logically. Also, I might have insight that they're not aware of that helps them piece together the big picture.
