對我而言 要用"to me"而不能用"for me"。因為"對"要用"to"
對他來說，這是他的夢想。 = To him, this is his dream.
對我來說，他是我的命。 = To me, he is my life.
1. To me, my sister's case is an emergency
2. To me, my sister's case should be prioritized
3. My sister's case is top priority to me.
4. My sister's case is an emergency case to me
Where concern often rises about these two phrases is when they are fronted in a sentence:
To me, golf is a pointless game.
For me, golf is a pointless game.
These have the same meaning here, and are interchangeable. As one commentator put it:
"...People are using the frontal 'for me' mostly as an ellipsis of 'as for me'('as far as I'm concerned'). As for 'to me', they are using it as a shortened form of the phrases like 'it sounds/looks/seems/appears to me'."
There are other structures where the prepositions lead to differences in meaning, of course:
It is pointless for me to continue this discussion = I have no good reason to continue talking.
It is pointless to me to continue this discussion = It seems to me that there is no good reason for anyone to continue talking.

In most cases like this (w/o context), you have to go with 'to me'
to me: your opinion
for me: how it affects you

諸位也可以用"To me,"置於句首, 或"to me"置於句尾.

To the other expert, I humbly disagree. I've read the web page you'd provided. My question is this man's credentials for his title as a "language coach."

As I browsed around more online, and with many years of living in this culture, "to me" or "for me" are used very commonly in expressing an opinion or feelings.

Another website (http://en.allexperts.com/q/English-Second-Language... also gives a very "vague" description on the difference.

My argument here is that it'd be a little risky and almost incorrect to say that "for me" is wrong; only "to me" applies in that sentence. Both, in my opinion, are grammatically correct.
2011-01-07 00:02:14 補充：
They have a different undertone to each. For me or To me, my sister's situation is dire. I don't see anything wrong with either one of them.
2011-01-07 00:02:37 補充：
Lastly, this sentence does not come with a context. It does not specify either direction for us to really get down to the "right" choice of word.
