Don't give advice to people unless it is asked for, lest you belittle them and come off looking lik

Sunday, August 27, 2006

Don't give advice to people unless it is asked for, lest you belittle them and come off looking like a know-it-all. This is a big concept, and one that I'm trying to work at. Sometimes it just doesn't make sense. Rather than giving advice, I've been paraphrasing and verbalizing what I'm seeing. I've met with good results. This way, I can get an opinion of whether or not the other person is just venting, or if they are interested in someone else's viewpoint. This is a difficult concept to practice. Anyway, it's worth repeating--don't give advice to people unless it is asked for, lest you belittle them and come off looking like a know-it-all.
