are you always tired of being wrong?
    #2455416 - 03/20/04 09:18 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

do you have a person that youre close to that seems to always be just a little bit ahead of you/ just a little bit more educated than you?

for me, its my best friend/roommate. i swear to god sometimes i dont even know why i open up my mouth. its like every comment that i have to say (relevent or otherwise), he has a way to refute it. fucking a, for once i want to make a statement and have him actually be like "yeah dude. i totally agree."

this used to just happen mostly when we'd get into in-depth conversations, but now it happens all the time, about little tiny shit. for example, i was just talking to him about how much 21+ concerts piss me off, and i made a statement that i thought that just about everyone would agree with. i said "man seattle needs more major all-ages venues." and OF COURSE, he had to have an argument for that. (his main point being that if a venue was all-ages, chances are itd just get shut down because it wouldnt make any money.)

it drives me nuts....just because it seems like every topic he knows just a little bit more than me. and i guess its really difficult cause hes my best friend, after all.

Tell him how smart he is. I bet he agrees with you on that.

I do a lot of debating on both the Political Forum and S&P, and I've been proven wrong many times. It can sometimes be frustrating, but I'm now smarter because of it. It's a great learning process, as long as you keep an open mind. It's your ego that's making you frustrated. If you recognize how little you know and accept it, you'll find that you can learn a lot, which can become an enjoyable experience. It's the close-minded people who think they know everything that are the real dumbasses.

oh yeah it was cool for awhile, and im not saying i dont like debating with other people...

...just with him its getting irritating. i guess what bugs me is that im not a dumbass, but i just never know how to respond to what he says other than by saying "oh. yeah. i guess youre right."

oh well, time to get smarter... :wink:

Well, some people can make it more frustrating if they rub it in your face. Does it feel like he's flaunting his superior knowledge and acting condescending towards you?

If that's the case, then it looks like you need to work on softening your ego(Naturally I recommend a healthy dose of psilocybe mushrooms :mushroom2:).  It's your ego that's making you unhappy by creating an inferiority complex.  Once you get past your ego, you'll learn to appreciate knowledge for what it is, regardless of who it's coming from. :sun:

People only try and prove they are intelligent because of some kind of insecurity. People who truley believe in themselves don't have to brag about it.

that makes sense, but i dont really think thats the case.

its not that i have a big/inflated ego...at all, really.... like its not an issue of me wanting to be better than him, its just more of an issue of wanting to relate to him with shit like we did when we first started hanging out, instead of just disagreeing with shit all the time.

im not really sure if any of that makes sense but i dont know how to say it better.

If the issue is wanting to relate to him, then you just need to find a new way to relate to him. You don't have to have the same intellectual capacity to relate to someone.

Hey. I have heard that the first sign of someone being abusive or controlling is that you feel stupid around them - they say things to make you feel dumb. I am not saying that he is, but I would just be careful - like think about whether there was some other way he could respond or a more sensitive way to say something. Or if you would respond in the same way he does. Also, make sure you tune into your own reasons for saying things and question if you are really wrong all the time.

Used to have a friend like that.
At first the things he said were cool, but then he became Mister Know it All. I couldn't say anything without him replying with another fact, he just tried to sound like he knew so much.
My other friends and I just gave him a bunch of shit about it and he eventually lightened up.

Sounds like your friend is insecure, and he needs to prove you wrong to feel good about himself. In some way he is probably jealous of you. Just when you think you know someone you find out that you really don't know them at all.

gah, i have a couple friends like that.

everytime i tried to start a conversation it would turn into an argument, because they'd always have the last word.. if i would say something that they didn't agree with, they would always shut it down and be mean about it ("that's the dumbest idea i've ever heard!").. and some of them weren't even ideas, but facts! for instance, the paranthese'd part up there was a rebuttal by one of them to my saying that -humans are animals-. somehow this guy wouldn't get that through his skull. oh well.

they also didn't believe that any drugs could aid in day to day living (or that ideas could be carried over from drugs into daily life).. i just gave up and usually nodded along with them. i still hate hearing the phrase, "no, you're wrong.. it's like this.." from one of them :nonono:

so yeah, i know how you feel. all i can say is that i just started ignoring it (and i rarely see those people anymore).

I always treasure the opportunity to meet someone smarter than me. It's an opportunity to learn new things, and learning for me is what life is pretty much all about.
