Something that we have to deal sometimes in our everyday life. Arrogant, deceived, snarky and completely untoward people in school, college, work, etc.
I know that, after all, they're just blinded by their own ego. But I also know that these people tend to put themselves and put others into some unsuitable situations and that's where things get inconvenient for me. Not about the fact that they put themselves in said situation but the fact that they involve others who have nothing to do with it.
To illustrate the aforementioned situation, I'll give an example:
You are talking with someone about a certain subject and then comes this person and butts in the dialogue to say something to embarass you. Most people in this situation, after feeling ashamed, kinda feel angry and starts to think: "What's the deal with him/her?" Some people keep silent and either tries to ignore the interloper or indulge into a quarrel with the high possibility in ending into a physical strife.
Analyzing the situation we can have two conclusions:
-The person in question tried to make a clown out of himself/herself with a unpleasant remark but he's not expecting any reaction besides embarassment
-Or he was probably testing someone to see if he/she could start some kind of feud
Either way, giving a verbally or physically aggressive response means that he/she got what he/she was seeking for. Even if you silent yourself but starts to nurture disdain for him/her, he/she got what he/she wanted. He/she wanted to embarass and annoy you for his/her own purposes. Now, the million dollar question is: Why?
Do they feel the need to show to others that they are funny, important or something else? Do these needs are really crucial to them to the point where your reputation is meaningless to them? Don't they care if they shun people away with this attitude? Don't they see they are just feeding their own fake self in order to satisfy the ego?
The example I gave is a silly one compared to other lenghts the ego makes people go further to seek some recognition to their delusions.
How you guys deal with these people?
