    Default What's the meaning of " interest" here ?

    Dear teachers,

    Here is a sentence:

    Yound man, my advice is to do what you believe to be in your best interest.

    Does "interest" here mean " a state of curiosity, a need to know" or " advantage, benefit" ?

    Thanks

    That's right
    to be in one's interest means it's to your advantage, it's what works for you best, etc.
