To dream of getting directions from someone (for how to get somewhere) symbolizes your ability to accept criticism.

The meaning depends on what you did afterwards.

If you tried to follow the directions, you are able to see yourself clearly and listen to the opinions of others.

If you didn’t, you have a problem dealing with authority. Perhaps you are overly sensitive.

If you dreamed of giving directions, this refers to your goals and search for purpose in life. You are on a path toward self-realization.
