Re: Who was a better counselor, Troi or Guinan?
It's a good point you'd make. Honestly though, I'd feel more comfortable talking to Guinan about a deep personal issue too though. It's too formal with Troi, she's recording what you tell her each session and half the time you're only there because you're ordered to be. Guinan's a person you can open up with because you want to, not because you need to.
