I’ve been told – I am arrogant. I don’t understand why people think I am arrogant. Is it the confidence in my voice or activities that makes person I’m dealing with feel that I am arrogant? I agree, there have been times when my basic questions made the person I’m talking to feel absolute idiot. For example –
Someone: This excel sheet has a column titled “Probability”. It has five different values from 1 to 5.
Me [instantly, without much thinking]: Ah, how can probability be more than 1?
At this point, someone’s bee proven idiot because he has been using that excel sheet for more than 2 years, without any complaints from anyone.
‘Someone’ has formed an opinion in his mind that Big K is arrogant. He then actively spreads the word about Big K’s arrogance all around. Do you see that? All my mathematically correct intentions worked against me. This happens all the time.
It happened last week. A person I am dealing with sent me technically incorrect source code. Now, since I was the second to act and the code changes could only be done by the oritinal author, I pointed the mistakes [precisely; the broken image paths] and send it back to the author. The author, told me she had updated the code and sent back the
same (unchanged) code. I, politely, explained the mistakes and asked the author to rectify them. The author then replied back with the unchanged code 🙂 . Then I spoon-fed the author on how to fix the images and that give the author impression that BIG K IS ARROGANT WHO THINKS HE IS THE ONLY INTELLIGENT GUY IN THE WORLD.
I don’t know what to do. How to talk to people. I don’t want to hurt people.
What should I do? Help!
