Dealing with Difficult People: The Know-It-All

Dealing with Difficult People: The Know-It-All | Global Leaders | Scoop.it
Got a know-it-all in your life who knows everything except, perhaps, how to act like a real human being? Read on for tips on how to deal.
Anne Egros's insight:

 

According to the author of this article, Susan Davis, the Know It All (KIAs) are part of the most difficult people in the world to deal with, along with :

 

*The bullies

*The stealth destroyers

*The "yes" people

**The complainers

*The martyrs

 

 There are KIAs everywhere but it is particularly annoying when this type of person is your boss, employee or co-worker.

 

So what can you do when you are engaged in a dead end conversation with a KIA or worse with a clique of KIAs?

 

No matter what you say, those people will never be interested in your ideas if they don't think like you. They usually use criticism, condescending or sarcastic tone and even try to intimidate you..

 

KIA people lack basic emotional intelligence and are self-defensive trying to exclude anybody who are not admiring their intelligence or agree with their truth or faith.

 

As much as possible  stay calm and relaxed not trying to argue at all. You will  always lose  if you try to battle with their ego. In addition, it is not good for your heart and well-being as you may feel frustrated and angry.

 

In case having a conversation is unavoidable, then ask the KIA person questions about their field of expertise  they will be more than happy to teach you something.

Personality Traits across Diverse Cultures

Personality Traits across Diverse Cultures | Global Leaders | Scoop.it
Robert R. McCrae Talks about Personality Traits across Diverse Cultures; Fast Moving Fronts commentary from the field of SLAYER.
Anne Egros's insight:

From the article :


Simplistic stereotypes cannot be right, because everywhere we find a range of personality variation: Some people are ambitious, others are lazy; some are flexible, others are rigid; some are skeptical, others are gullible. But the ways in which people differ are always along the same lines, the universal dimensions of personality.


Our personality is what we really are at heart, and is it something we share with all of humanity.
