I know the type you are speaking of--he is 40 years old. This individual is belligerent and must be right about everything, so much so that his response to a simple question changes multiple times when he is proven wrong by others who, for the sake of getting on with the task at hand, would like to move on. When he cannot fulfill a promise or he has not taken responsibility for his part of a task, he often becomes angry and slams objects around, insults other people or whatever he thinks will hurt them the most, and punches holes in walls and doors. This type of person cannot let go of their ego to concentrate on substance rather than the superficial, which would be his anger at himself (or so he would claim, momentarily) for not being right. Every situation, no matter how benign, must turn into a competition in which he pits himself against another, diverting the focus from what needs to be done to how his feelings are being hurt. Furthermore, he has had no goals in life and has raised his children with the "I say or else..." rule, which does not work, but to produce bullying children who will have poor communication and coping skills.
