What will be more preferable to delete or vote to close your own question, as you have got a comment this question may be a possible duplicate of any 'given question'?

deleting streamlines the process, vote to close requires more people –  user161944 Jul 4 '11 at 9:08

If you feel your phrasing of the question is completely unlike the duplicate, and thus might help future searchers find the same information using different words -- I would move to close as duplicate.

Otherwise, self-deletion is easier and more efficient.

It's a pity that the question own can't close thier quesion as a duplicate without needing 3 other people to vote. –  Ian Ringrose Jul 4 '11 at 12:07
    
I'd like to add - if the question has useful answers / comments beyond those that appear in the duplicate, closing should be preferred above deletion. –  Dukeling Feb 10 '13 at 11:21
