This post from Psychology Today examines something we all would like to think we are good at, and offers some interesting insights…

A lot of our daily conversations involve giving and getting advice. You talk about new movies, and a friend recommends that you go see it. Another friend wants to go to a Tex-Mex restaurant, and you recommend that they avoid one that just opened. Later, you mention that you are thinking about joining a new gym, and a friend points out that a new gym nearby offers free personal trainers some afternoons.

Are these kinds of advice effective? Do people use the advice they get?
