"Chose for others, what you chose for yourself."
I believe, that is the greatest mistake reflecting primitive philosophy!
If you are a fool, or a masochist, the impact will be negative!
And if you are a representative of another culture, or the other sex, it may be negative as well !
I would suggest: "Chose for others what a person in his/her place would chose for him/herself, and if you are not sure -ASK!!!!!!!"
