Pre mixed Mastic vs Powder

I have never tiled before. I purchased a premixed mastic. A friend told me that I should not use this as he heard form others this takes a long time(over a month) to dry. Is this true. He says that if you step on a tile it may sink, even after a month. Please send advice. would it be better to use a powder. This is for a kitchen floor,.

Don't use any sort of Mastic. Use Thin Set.

The only application where I would use mastic is on a kitchen backsplash. Floors always need thinset mortar, no exceptions.
