Its true that there are many people in our society and now-a-days you will find even in online forums where they pretend to be knowing everything and keep discussing and behaving as if they know all and the rest of the world is full of unwise people.In your opinion what are the reasons behind someone's pretending as
Some people just like to give advise. That's not necessarily because they think they know everything. They probably don't see much outside of their own world.
That's a very good way of speaking about it. Those who are doing what they are doing, have the best of intentions.
Yes--nicely said, and perhaps because of the insight they have into "their world" there is a desire and joy to share that with others. The intent is honorable. However, that does not mean that they don't have the ability to "see much outside" the scope of their world. I think anyone devoted to the humanities, arts, and sciences--the world of knowledge--can attest to a deep desire to teach, write, create, and share their perceptions with others. Why else are we in the world of HUB?
Well said and I think all have the right to share their experience-thats the key behind our emotional growth.At the same time every other things in this univesrse have a threshold value -why should it not be applicable in case of our expressing thoughts.
I see it in the world but I have to say I don't see it on here. I personally knew nothing when I joined this site but have learnt a lot from people who do actually know their stuff. I don't think they think they know all, I just think they are good enough to pass on their knowledge. My view anyway !
Not wnating to sound like a no-it-all or anything, but you misspelled Andromeda
Many times people are just giving opinions on what they think. Of course they arent always right. The people who do think they are right all the time definately can be very annoying.
But - maybe - some of us do know everything. Have you considered that?
As soon as you feel you've mastered the point, it's become lost on you.
I know a lot about a few things, science, health, sexual health, biology and a few other things. I don't pretend to know everything, that would be impossible! But I do know a lot. Any other subjects and probably won't even try
I think that people have experience/education in certain fields. But people who pretend to know about something that they clearly don't (or are just flat out wrong!) are really annoying
That's annoying alright! But in some cases it can be cute. I have a friend who keeps on advising me on every problem I got. In most cases she's flat out wrong, and is ready to argue about it. But that's not her mistake. Clearly, it's pretty easy to interpret things from one's own perspective.
I know that you're probably talking about your boss who is clearly an idiot.
Well, luckily (for me) I DO know everything.
I'm just keeping it to myself, is all.
I know a few things in a few areas and will help those that ask otherwise, I don't say anything cept may flirt hehe
It is good to know but then would simply knowing help even the individual himself/herself until and unless that person shares in a non confrontational manner. Unsolicited advice and opinions especially in personal realm are seldom appreciated. Btw recently I saw the movie Bucket List and in that movie it shows that sometimes more than knowing, acting out our dreams is more important to be happy in life.
Knowing it all I would advise against taking movies for face value, they rarely resemble real life
Of course I do distinguish reel life from real life. I was just trying to share the message I got from the movie. Maybe I sounded a little childish with that mention. Ok, Misha I would try to grow up.
Never mind CW-girl, I was just kidding around, and you made yourself an easy target
Where have you been, was thinking the other night I haven't seen my buddy Misha about.
DS/Misha- I know Misha likes to do that Maybe I did sound like I believe in imaginary stuff like movies and all. Point noted and would be more careful. Hope you guys have a great weekend.
PS: Can you please tell your crew in Somalian coast to layoff for a while.
Hope you have a great weekend too, CW is fun gettin tickled from afar huh lol
Oh yes I love his sense of humor and he does know how to get the party going. I have seen him stir quite a few interesting discussions. We are planning to have a picnic tomorrow afternoon and have to do some cooking. Sometimes life isn't fair even on weekends when you want to relax at home then plans come up which you can't refuse. Anyway hopefully it would be fun in the sun.
If I could, I would come right over and help you, CW and yap a storm about Misha and BC99 hehe
Thanks for the offer of help(it is potluck luckily hence not so much trouble but still got to do my share). I am sure it would be quite a party if Misha and our Pirate happen to be there.
Hey don't be fooled me and Misha are best buddies and we mail each other daily, don't be fooled by his rippling muscles hes a really sensitive guy, like me naturally ; )
This sounds like fun - can I join in too?
Better yet, we can invite them both to come over and dance for us
For you sweet Aya-chan - anything I am just afraid it might look like this: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid … 8005648430
Whatever do you mean, mon cher capitain we would discuss clothing and dame talk
I have no idea what you refer cher capitain really, we would jus discuss dame talk and steer clear of fetishes lol
I think it is good that the community here is always willing to express their opinion and share their knowledge.
If you keep an open mind, you can end up knowing a lot
For some of us we have knowledge based on experience and life long lessons, so many do not pretend they just simply know how to respond.
oh yes,teenagers sometimes behave like they know everything.Don't
you find that simply irritating.what can we do to rectify this type of attitude of teenagers?
They just need to figure it out on their own, the way everyone else has had to. It's all part of maturing and gradually getting to a point where we do understand quite a bit more than we did when we were younger.
People act in this fashion because of insecurity, frankly. Some can never be wrong, ultimately--and persecute others from this perspective. Perhaps that's where totalitarianism may begin (?)
That isn't to say if one knows something or understands something that they shouldn't offer and contribute what they know--nothing is gained by acting dumb (and many women I think, of a certain kind, I can say--excellent students, high achievers, sometimes better at whatever than many of the guys around them--at times think it might be an easier way.) It's not!
I guess you opened a can of worms there, Lita. Believe me in some cultures men still want to have women to have equal or lesser intelligence(at least openly appearing to be so). Besides even at work place a woman who is very pushy or aggressive seems to gel lesser with other woman too. I guess sometimes one has to fit into the expectations too.
Hmmm. CW. I find the opposite to be true. Some of the WORST bosses I have ever had were pushy and aggressive women, or worse--passive aggressive women. I think I know what it is about--or at least have an opinion (!lol).
Ultimately--it's about hierarchical structure. Those women in their 50's, etc. who are now CEO's and managers had to face all that you are talking about here. The traditional woman's role. The one's who made it through necessarily might have been the real, excuse me, b*tches, in to power and the whole 9 yards. Think of Demi Moore's role in "Disclosure." They thought they had to act like cutthroat men (?)
Yeah, and then there is the socially 'nice, nice' woman--and she may gel better and be accepted (I guess), but that isn't exactly effective or actually honest, either, if that isn't who you are.
There is a way, I think, of just being yourself and being natural--if society and the corporate world will allow it (and sometimes it seems they don't). I do notice this with all the women I work with--that there seem to be factions... Support staff types are a lot 'nice,' and let's talk recipes and hair, and "oh, let me make those copies for you." Silly stuff. Managerial women types handing down those ridiculous from-God-on-high-edicts, like, "thou shalt not wear open toe shoes except every other Tuesday," in a most dictatorial fashion (which most laugh at behind their backs, too).... Sigh.
And as far as M/F relationships, and as far as America, it would be excruciating for me (and at times has been) if a guy is not on the same par intelligence-wise... However, hopefully, it is easier to be honest in these relationships (one would hope!).
I guess you did open up a can of worms, CW!
I thought I knew it all. But when I had my kids, the first real lesson I had to learn was how the body produced different shades of poo!
Now, I'm a mother, I was told by my older sister's that I will know nothing until they leave home.
YES!! Oh Yes..
I just not more than 10 minutes ago felt like pulling my hair out due to this very thing.
What to do... Hmmm ( I mean legally)...
Thank you.Then you can visit my hub regarding this topic.
Hope I wasn't the cause of this 8 hours ago with my posting...Hmm, what to do? What did you do? A.---You know I love you and your fiesty spirit Glad you didn't shoot the messenger!
I do think the original statement is true. I don't think you can find that many people who think they know everything. We all have opinions and we have an opinion on every subject. That doesn't mean we believe we are the ultimate authority on any subject. Sometimes we speak from knowledge and experience, sometimes we speak from gut feeling or tradition for where we live, sometimes we just want to be a funny.
I think no one in this world knows everything. If someone knows everything, then the person is not a human being and might be th Almighty.
What my teenagers didn't know, my dog did. And the cat knew more than everybody combined, but she wasn't telling
I will agree it is a bit difficult being right all of the time. It is not so bad knowing everything though. I just have to learn how to tolerate all of the rest of the people in the world who are so jealous of me...
