(blah blah blah)

The original topic gets lost because the conversation becomes focused on the person giving advice. It becomes about them.
Better as a blog post/reply:

I manage enterprise teams for a living. Some personalities tend to provide counsel, wanted or not. If not, too bad I guess. And we won't be hanging out much anymore, assuming we're talking personal life vs. business. What possible difference does it make?

Careers sometimes pick people. I figured out about 25 years ago "Do that which 1) you do exceptionally well 2) is in demand (scarcity of labor) 3) pays well. Took a few year to figure out 1), 2), and 3) for my skills, demand, and pay. And here I am, and I'm okay with that.

My answer is two fold: desire to correct that which needs correction, assuming it's in my area of expertise. If not, keep quiet.
