We got to buy a property and you made some money!  Luckily we didn't take your BS seriously....

 

I couldn't upsell you on a penthouse :) ?

Data can also be interpreted in an automated fashion.   The advantage of that it is more objective, the disadvantage is there are limits to how specifically it can analyze any given situation

 

This is true, and is a valuable approach in an investment scenario, but it's difficult to quantify the fact that the house smells like your grandmothers cooking or that you want to live down the street from the ballpark that you played ball in as a kid so that your kids can play in the same ballpark.

I feel like my counselling is complete BS, but my clients seem to actually think they are getting something out of it.  What am I missing?

 

You're missing the fact that what we talk about a lot of the time is, to us, both self evident and contains a measure of common sense, which is often not the case for the people to whom we're talking.  Imagine that you're a social history professor and you talk about the significant social effect of mid century political movements and their effect on shaping today's society and the lasting impact that they continue to have on our overall social development.  You talk about it every day, you write books about it, you're an expert on it.  As that professor you find these effects to be self evident and unmistakably present everywhere you look, but to the student who has signed up for your class this information, this context, is nothing short of a revelation.

Precisely the point I was trying to make...
