Assuming they are not one and the same. Happens often enough, askers rewarding those who regurgitate their existing beliefs instead of honest, accurate rebuttals which provoke conversation. Where do you fall?

I typically do not ask question looking for advice, but rather to promote some sort of discussion. Therefore, I typically give MHO to the users who I felt expressed their opinions/beliefs the best and who seemed the most sensible to me. Their opinions may or may not be what I personally believe, however, I feel like if someone can express themselves well, I am far more open to their ideas.0

I give it to the best answer I read.
For questions where I'm asking for advice, I'll give it to someone who makes a sensible opinion and a viable plan of action. They show they actually care a bit enough to write a well thought out opinion.
For funny questions, I'll give it out the most funny person.
For generic questions, I give it out to the person who put the most effort in the opinion. It still has to be a good answer though.0
