Isn't it a disadvantage to tell someone else about how you played a hand or how you play in general? I feel like I have my own unique style of playing and it gets me deep, I just don't have the patience to build my bankroll the right way but if I was ever a professional I wouldn't want to discuss hands with anyone.

Discussing hands can show you where are you making mistakes and how to fix it by different ways... It helps a lot to improve your own game.

You may kill your interlocutor after your revealing. And he will take away in the grave secrets of your unique style.

Sometimes you get paid much more for making coaching videos, writing books/articles etc then you would make actually playing poker

You are right discussing your play with others can put you at a disadvantage but only in some ways. IMO if you do not vary how you play, if your sharing with people whom you play against regularly and if its in game against your opponents. At the same time tho I've seen people discuss hands at the table and they are setting people up to use what they shared against them later, or to get an idea of how their opponents think.
Discussing play with trusted friends or on forums like this one tho can be a great way to gain much insight. You may have leaks in your game revealed, you could also gain perspective into the minds of others you are facing at the tables as they share their strategy and thoughts.
