If you are adventuring into a state or area you have never been to, you may reach out to friends and family. You might ask, "You've been to Maine, haven't you?" Then you follow up with an onslaught of questions like:
Basically, there is an underlying motive in your conversation and your brain is thinking, “Just tell me if you would recommend it.”
As you hear someone else's positive memories, you might be tempted to latch onto their experience. You might try to figure out if you can make their memories your own. When returning, your friends will ask, "How was your time? Did you do this? Did you do that?" Really, they are trying to figure out if your experience aligns with their own. In addition, they are looking for confirmation that they recommended a good thing to you.
It is impossible for you to have the same experience. The truth is you see things just different. Your likes might not be the same. Your dislikes might not be the same. The way you think is simply… different. In addition, was the time of year the same? Did you meet the same people? Simply, there is no way that you are going to develop the same positive memories as someone else.
So, why do you adapt to someone else’s vacation memories, experience, and recommendations? Time. You do not want to waste it. You are looking for a shortcut in planning. You want security that you will have a good time and not waste your vacation away on a bad experience.
