Have you ever had someone ask to pick your brain? Sometimes they’ll use those exact words, but other times it looks like this:
“Can I buy you coffee?”
“Are you available for a quick Skype call?”
“Can you help me real fast with just a couple questions?”
It’s flattering and at the same time a very strange feeling. On the one hand, it feels good to be asked for advice, but on the other hand, something seems a bit weird about the exchange. Why does it feel weird?
