I'm not going to speak for Szezpan. I interpreted his comment meaning sometimes when you're receiving advice from a partner and they confuse, patronize, frustrate you, listen to the sensei has to say. In other words, the sensei trumps what others have to say.
I wouldn't ignore totally what your partner has to say as most times what they have to say is very helpful even though sometimes it is wrong or they just have a hard time conveying it.
