Seeking Advice

We often fail to seek advice because it makes us look bad or less than. However, research actually reports the opposite. When we seek advice, generally, people are flattered that you think highly of them. In fact, being asked for advice is flattering and increases their self-confidence. In other words, others think highly of you for asking them because asking for their advice reflects on their own intelligence.

However, the seeker must be certain that the person the asker is seeking advice from knows the answer or else the results will backfire.

Therefore, seek advice! Just ensure the person you are asking it from thinks they know the topic.
