Are You THAT Person?

By Ange Fonce

Have you ever had a friend or an acquaintance who ruined a good conversation by being overly arrogant?

Or you are dealing with a person who is perfect... a know it all and is always right?

You know the one who suddenly makes an outrageous or totally awkward comment that leaves everyone wide eyed and they are thinking to themselves or even mention out loud...

"I cannot believe you just said that!"

Have you been that person yourself?

Then the people you have been talking to give each other that look... make an excuse and walk away and never to return and you are left alone and stuck with a bad feeling in the pit of your stomach…

You are THAT person who has become the social misfit.

While Working To Build Confidence 

It is very important not to go over that thin line into the world of arrogance.

Here are a few arrogant behaviors in case you need to know what makes arrogant behaviour...

You think that you are always right.

You think you are superior to the people around you.

You correct every ones method or way of doing whatever it is that they do.

You think that your ideas are always the best ones and you are always right.

If all these hold true for you then you are either overconfident or deeply insecure and you are going to want to invest some time working on some inner game issues.

However for those who feel like only one or two of those might apply... here is a little reminder for reducing your arrogant tendencies.

1... Be upfront about your knowledge.  

When you do not know something admit it... recognize that you do know everything and that anytime someone knows something you do not know... it is an opportunity to learn. 

A short and helpful sentence to remember... 

"I would like to know more... tell me more about it."

2... Make the choice not to be offended.  

If you are the kind of person who is over sensitive and takes offense to just about everything then try this... 

Next time someone teases or says something that upsets you take a breath and ask yourself why you are reacting so strongly and then ask... is it worth it? 

We all have idiosyncrasies and we all make mistakes.

3... Give sincere and non generic compliments. 

This can be achieved easily... 

Step 1 pay attention and listen in the conversation. 

Step 2 when someone says or does something that you honestly feel good about and you appreciate them... let them know. 

Step 3 tell them why that thing they did was so impressive or important to you.


He tells you a story about traveling... being well traveled is a quality you like about people so you compliment him by saying... 

"I love how well traveled you are... I am always happy to be around people who have seen the world because they tend to have more open minds... experienced and share great stories."

4... Give people credit when credit is due. 

If someone says or does something awesome give them credit... simple as that.


She says... 

"This place is great." 

And you give credit to the friend who suggested it to you... 

"Yes it was Mats idea he seems to know all the best places."

Be interested... be curious... be courteous.

Do not be THAT person... be the EXCEPTION.
