A interesting question I found while browsing boardgamegeeks who were talking about people who like to give unsolicited advice, or those who are found of discussing strategies and looking them up while playing games.
But I thought this question can pretty much be applied to all aspects of life really.
For me, I kind of like exploring, but at the same time I probably lean more closer towards the first option since I like the idea of perfecting a skill or doing well. Another reason I prefer the former option rather than the latter is because I know that there are some things that I'll never be able to discover if I was left to my own devices (T-spinning in tetris, dealing with problems by listening to other people's experiences.)
How about you guys?
