ADVICE VS CLARIFICATION Part 1

OK!! My husband and I were talking, we were talking about advice and how often we give it.   I told him I didn’t give advice that often, and that it was only given when asked for.  Which led us to the topic of this question and answer.    Below is my thoughts on this and then I will post my husband’s thoughts on this at a later point and it will be called part 2.

My thoughts:
I might be very simplistic in my thinking, but your only giving advice IF the person is asking for it.  If you ask a question to clarify something IT IS NOT ADVICE.  For example:  Your at work, your having issues with something and a co-worker comes in and is talking to you about it.  He or she tell’s you what the issue is and you then ask him a series of questions, is that giving advice or is it clarification????   Let’s say that the issue is that something broke down, it’s close to quitting time and you really need this piece of equipment.  Is asking if you have time to quickly call around, and see if you can find this same thing for rent, giving advice????  Or is that asking for clarification as to what your allowed to do?

For me asking in a question is not giving advice, but saying something like Go rent a machine before it get’s to late, is giving advice.
