It's funny how much importance is given to our ages when clearly most of the times our age is not a correct description of our personality.

Questions to think about!
Do you think age matters in taking advice? Would you accept advice from a person younger than you?

Is that why online discussions are so valuable? We don't know each other's age (at least not right in the beginning) and we just take their advice and if it seems reasonable we follow it.

  Would you even discuss your problems with younger people in life?
Any additional comments are always welcome!

  Enjoy discussing!

maybe.. coz when online, people are looking for different point of views / possible solutions..which they could have missed out...then their concern would not be on the person's age..but what advice he/she gives.
  Would you even discuss your problems with younger people in life? ya if that person is close to me..and would understand the situaion well..

It's not the age that matters but the experience. If someone has already experienced a situation he can always give some valuable inputs.

Maybe for those who look at age before deciding whether the person can give proper advice or not. Otherwise, I feel both real life and virtual life are same. There'll be people who will provide garbage and there'll be people who'll actually give good advice.

A little younger maybe yes. A lot younger then no. It's not because of the age, but mainly because in real life there is no one who is much younger and yet close to me to discuss problems.

I think age does matter as usually age is a sign of knowledge, it wouldn't seem right if a 10 year old was advising a 50 year old, but the whole thing is weird as the 10 year old may be far superior in the knowledge field than the 50 year old, e.g. the 50 year old could have been wasting their life and the 10 year old has been doing some serious studying. I would think about advice from a younger person, but it would have more value coming from an older person. I guess it all matters about how we think I think......

To be completely honest, I don't really have online discussions. But I feel online advice is slightly better as it is given more confidentially, plus you don't actually know the truth about the other person, you just tend to rely on what they say......

Would you even discuss your problems with younger people in life?

If you mean not online, then probably not, I would rather get someone older and talk about stuff with them, or someone atleast around my age.....

I guess I'm a hypocrite, I like advising older people, yet I have no place to give elders the right as I'm not really as experienced as them, but I guess I wouldn't really take advice from youngers....

This whole topic has made me think about this all, thanks! Big smile Great topic!

no it doesn't matter. A younger person could give great advice if they know about the situation..

yeah i guess its easier to take advice from a person online, and their age doesn't matter, maybe they've experienced it, that matters more.

  Would you even discuss your problems with younger people in life?
yeah if i feel they'll understand, then maybe. I do discuss some of them with a girl 1 yr younger than me, though not much nowadays.
