I think a big issue with someone telling you how to play your job better is their own lack of knowledge. For instance. If Nagamaki were to walk up to my monk75 and tell me 'wear this sh*t so you dont suck'- or 'why do you do that? its pointless. wear this gear instead and do this.' I'd probably doubt his reasons(not really but for examplesake) and ignore it, continuing to wear whatever gear I think is right.
However if he were to say, if these pieces of gear because the total dex+ will put you into the next tier of critical % rate on this enemy, giving you a substantial increase in Acc and DoT via crits, without sacraficing other gear slots.
So really the key part is that when someone is telling you how to do your job it helps if they have all the details on how it works. For example I -KNOW- a RDM is capable of a full haste cycle and refresh cycle, but I don't know timings and MP spent/vs. how much refresh recovers, and how often you would have to heal etc. So I wouldn't tell a RDM how to do it. I don't know how many tics while resting you can do at minimum between each fight to keep going untill that next convert timer is up. So I won't tell them how to do it. I say if you can prove what you're telling the person to do, via ingame , accurate examples..do it. Even then, some people won't agree untill they are dead on the ground wondering if they should have listened to you or not, or wondering why you are such a jackass for not doing what THEY said.

If you need a bard to get "good exp" in a merit party, you're the weakest link.
