What is the best way to deal with someone who is egotistical to a dangerous level?


Someone who refuses to take constructive criticism, no matter how gently phrased or obvious to anyone else the criticism might be... How can you deal with such a person when walking away, ignoring them, and refusing to deal with them are not options?

    Oh, brilliant! You're totally correct--I'd react badly to unsolicited criticism, too, unless it was from a superior/person in authority. This person doesn't accept that I am SUPPOSED to be their critic! I have a plan now--thanks Lisa HW! Very helpful

    Perhaps this person is a narcissist, as you suggested. Especially love what you said about positive reinforcement—a solid plan of action that I'll start doing right away. And perhaps find ways of phrasing the corrections as compliments in disguise!
