Sometimes the swift and desired objective that is the result of an act of magic comes not as the immediate materialization of the thing or opportunity you wanted, but as damned good advice. In fact, it comes that way a lot.

I think a scale could even be made where the nature of the entity responding can be reasonably well identified by how subtle and rarefied or literal/material the result. Which would help answer the question (if it’s a question that needs asking, of course) “when is it appropriate to consult an angel, when a god, and when some other sort of spirit?”

Depends on the kind of stimulus/response you most need. And if you know that part, you already know something important.
