I mean like, are you honestly asking because you want the truth or are you waiting for someone to give the answer you were hoping for?
Looking at the way people rate answers, if everyone was honest I bet option one will win
- I ask questions hoping for a specific answerVote A
- I ask questions wanting an honest responseVote B
- Other (explain)Vote C

Most of my questions are ones that I actually do need some advice on. I could easily solve the problem myself but this site is nice for a timekiller or if I'm too bored or lazy to think of the answers myself, or if I'm just completely clueless.
I usually have a certain type of answer I'm looking for, but I put that in the question's description if there is indeed a possible answer I'd get that I know I wouldn't accept. For example, if I wanted to ask a girl out, one possible answer I could get would be "don't ask her out in the first place - she's not worth it". But that wouldn't quite be an answer I'd accept because I would already have decided to ask the girl out, and would just have needed some advice on how to do it.
But, if someone has an answer and explains it very well, even if it wasn't what I was expecting or the type of answer I was planning on even considering, I would definitely give it a chance and either take some advice from it or actually follow it.0
