    When asking questions with "you", are you asking for opinion or advice?

    For example, "How do you....(fill in the blank)?" When you ask this, are you being curious about others' beliefs, habits, customs, or are you looking for advice?

    Both, asking for opinions can also help with understanding others views.  Helping our self's with a possible dilemma.  I guess advise is a opinion when dealing with social situations or interactions with people.  Different answers can all help contribute to ones own situation.

    It depends on the question, the subject matter and the context.
    Examples:

    Opinion
    Which is the better soft drink, Pepsi or Coke:

    Advice:
    I am thinking of installing solar panels, is that a good idea.?

    Curious
    Do you believe in the Great Pumpkin?

    Habits
    What is the first thing you do when you get home from work each day?

    So it is all a matter of context, so tell me which soft drink do you prefer, and are you really going to install solar panels and by the way, what the is first thing you do when you get home from work each day?
