    Thanks for asking this psychic question.
    It depends on many factors like
    what's the intensity of need for a help,
    to whom i had to consult for help,
    how his/her nature is..he/she is emotional or not.
    in short if i feel the person is happy while helping i will take definitely
    if he is neutral and i need help intensely i will take
    But if he is helping with no intention to help and feeling trouble in it, no happiness, i will skip him even if i am in great need.
    By nature i feel good in helping rather in taking help.I usually avoid taking helps.

    I usually avoid asking for help, too. I try hard to resolve my problems by myself. And if I really do need help, I usually ask the people who I know would never mind helping me anytime - my family especially my mom.

    I had a conversation about this topic with one of my best friends just last night. We both agreed we hate asking for help, and never ask. I can honestly say i can't remember a time i asked for help. For one, i take pride in doing things on my own. More importantly and the quite sad truth is not feeling like you have someone to ask. Who is a real friend, or who would actually be there when you called? In conclusion we agreed we at least had each other.

    I find that it is difficult to ask for help. In my job I am the person who fixes things, it is unusual for me to be asking for help. I feel uncomfortable asking for help because I am the person that everyone comes to for help.

    great question by the way

    I am a person who will rely on myself to resolve issues or problems.

    Until it is such a situation to require help then I will seek for one. There is no reason why one should not rely on help in bad situation. But of course one should not be crying for help without a good reason. Only if you are unable to resolve an issue that requires someone's help, then it will be great to have an assistance to resolve issue.

    If there is someone willing to help you then never turn them down, just don't come to rely on help. Friends can be our greatest asset in times of need.

    This is a good question. To answer, I find that it can be a little embarrassing to ask for help. But, if you need solutions to a problem you cannot solve, what else are you to do? I have read the many posters here that say they ask for help only when it is absolutely necessary. Their reasonings is pretty much they don't want to seem inept or they may not want to "burden" someone else with their problem(s).

    Try this, don't we ask for help, many of us, from God? The bottom line is that there are certain things in life we cannot do in the "natural" but that you need that extra boost from God, himself. The one who gives us our strength to wake up in the morning and go through the day highly functional.

    Didn't mean to "spiritualize" my answer or sound so "deep" nevertheless, it's true.
