This is a question Advice from Old People

Sometimes, just sometimes, old people say something worth listening to. Ok, so it's like picking the needle out of a whole haystack of mis-remembered war stories, but those gems should be celebrated.

Tell us something worthwhile an old-type person has told you.

Note, we're leaving the definition of old up to you, you smooth-skinned youngsters.

Not knowing the slightest thing about psychology, I thought correlation and causation were more associated with statistics and the like.

Psychology is a research based discipline, and therefore very heavy on the statistics - it's one of the main ways they (we) develop theories, assessments, interventions etc.
