One time a friend of mine was describing a problem he was having. I don't like to give advice because I'm afraid people will take it and then blame me when it turns out to be bad.

I did have an idea, though, so I began with a long caveat that he shouldn't actually take this advice, and he stopped me.

"Do you really think I would just do what you're going to advise without thinking about it?"

His point was what was what I was presenting as humility was really a lack of belief in his intelligence and judgment.
