You could say that if they are not bright enough to advise others they are not bright enough to realise this and need me to point it out. Yet you could tell by the way they contacted me and the things they said that they knew they were inadequate. Because they tell me that they cannot get a job, they were fired from Mc Donalds for being inadequate and slow and turning up late all the time, they want a job that pays a lot more than that but where they can work from home and feel important. Wanting to fill the blanks when nothing is being said.
It may be that there are no other local doctors, it may be that they have tried the others and they are worse, but never give such obvious advice to anyone with a brain. People will ask for their money back if you tell them something really obvious and expect to get paid for it.We do not ask for experience or qualificaitions So one of the first things you have to understand is that our duty is to our paying clients. They can go to forums and their friends if they want advice from people who give crap advice or have ulterior motives for advising them.The world is full of people who would love to earn £40 per hour but do not have enough skill, experience, talent or brains to be able to.It can be about giving sympathy or telling lies to make someone feel better.Ask the majority of bad advisors onlnewould tell a girlfriend to dump her boyfriend with no thought to how she would never be able to do it because she needs him or thinks she loves him a lot.
They want an easy life, and they make this clear, but this has nothing to do with being any good at solving problems or advising people. One of the give aways was that when you asked them what proves they are capable of helping others by being an agony aunt they would say well my friends come to me with their problems and tell me all about it. And people are always quick to ask for free opinions, that means nothing. The majority of people who come to you for free advice are not really wanting it at all, they just want to complain and get a sympathetic ear, they want someone to agree with them, they do not want you to work things out for them but to accept they have worked it out for themselves.
