Only because for you it’s so rare… I think if a person begins to notice, even at an early age, that they are right more often than not then it is going to affect how they conduct themselves as an adult. Although that aspect may be self-correcting.Er, unless the reputation is established sufficiently well for other people to not question pronunciations from the “right guy”…As for “inhibition/ shame” I’d say yes.I’ve had occasion where I’ve had to “reign” back (quite drastically in some cases) on what I know when talking to some people.On the other hand, you can also have fun with it.Got sent on a team-building course once, with a number of people that included my office manager – a typical Dilbert-style PHB (Pointy-Haired Boss 1).At one point during the proceedings I made a bad joke 2 that everyone except the PHB got and laughed at.His comment was “It’s not like you to make a basic slip like that on terminology”.Rather than explain the joke (never a good thing) I took a different tack and said “Well I’ve found that I sometimes scare people when they realise how smart I really am, so I decided to make obvious mistakes now and again to show that I do commit errors, because then it makes me less intellectually intimidating”.He not only fell for that “reason” but spent the next couple of months informing all and sundry that not only was I incredibly clever but that I was also really considerate about other’s feelings 3.1 If you’re not familiar with the character from the Dilbert strip I can assure you that you’re almost certainly familiar with the archetype in real life.2 I much prefer “bad” jokes most of the time.3 Much to the amusement of those people who actually did know me. “Considerate” and “[Dywyddyr]” are NOT two words that go well together. Both are character builders. Like correcting somebody on something related to their profession, or correcting somebody when they’ve gone too deep into a rabbit hole when it isn’t necessary. I guess sometimes I feel like being knowledgeable about something can come off as a mixture of condescension and flaunting, which is why I sometimes feel uncomfortable being right when it means someone else is wrong… Originally Posted by scheherazade Originally Posted by babe Originally Posted by phdemon Originally Posted by babe what the heck is fify!! it is eithera) a pet name given to poodles (or the children of bob geldof)b) the first part of what a giant says when chasing boys called jack orc) an acronym for “fixed it for you”, it is used when someone edits your post to either correct an error (or more usually for humorous effect). smack!!!!!!!!!!!!

Being right is great… I also think there are people who need to admit they’re right.

Besides, you are so good at entertaining ‘the troops’. (scampers off to find new entertainments…) i love it!!!

Would it do us any good if Dywd was embarrassed by his own intelligence?

On the other hand, both you, myself and everyone else have met people, you know, the guy who works over in the corner and nobody knows who he is, who upon even just a casual chat exhibit an intelligence that belittles your own.

It’s GREAT being RIGHT!!! It’s GREAT being RIGHT!!!

Considering that I’ve just had to correct you, how would you know? In a real life social situation I’d only correct somebody if it was important, and even then I’d give every opportunity for them to save face if they felt the need to do so.

Not sure how that relates to what I wrote, except that the more right you are then, circumstances dependent of course, the bigger shock it [could] turn[s] out to be when you’re wrong.I suppose that “being right more often than not” could also lead to overconfidence in fields you’re not “qualified” to comment upon. You have my approval to call yourself ‘alpha female’ for i am a b.i.t.c.h.. babe in total control of herself.

But they also need to learn to admit when they are wrong and own up to it. Originally Posted by Dywyddyr Originally Posted by stander-j That said, depending on the circumstances marketing essay help
