    Perhaps more 'frank and fearless' in someways—if you're a stranger to the person you're removed from the emotional entanglements that make it difficult to render honest advice. But is often that emotional attachment and knowledge of the contextual history of the person that makes the advice relevant and significant. It depends on your friends, the level of honesty in the relationship, and how open you are to what they might say. Being a stranger doesn't automatically equal better advice, although it sometimes can.
