useful for OR useful to
Hello, I've stumbled upon another nuance which I don't understand clearly.
Which variant is correct:
Your answers have been useful to me.
Your answers have been useful for me.
Thank you very much. Given answers were really helpful :)
Correct: "Your answers have been useful to me."
However, 'for' would be correct in a sentence such as, "Your answers have been useful for this project."
I can't give a rule, but I would say that x (answers, help, understanding, assistance, contribution, etc.) is useful to a person, and for a thing.
