1. Answer how you think you should answer. (What would be considered the right or popular answer (even if you may not follow your own advice if faced w/ a similar situation)
2. Let your emotions answer for you (even if you can't relate to the question) (and even if it means coming across as blunt or insensative)
3. Actually try to put yourself in the "asker's" shoes, and answer how you would honestly handle the situation if it were you, even if you've never had to deal w/ something similar or can't relate.
4. Simply throw a few words out there, just to get the credits, and level up

I try to answer serious questions with advice I would follow myself with the information provided to me through the question or the OP's subsequent posts in any thread. Sometimes all of the necessary information isn't in the title question. I have been guilty of only answering the title question without reading through the body of the question after opening it. I'm trying to get better about not doing that.
I rarely rely on emotion to answer questions.
