I would say narcissist. They are never at fault.
we all know it all or what the best answer is for ourselves. People have different views on respect and levels of respect....
It reminds me of this book "Illusions: Adventures of a reluctant Messiah". You should read it. You can download a free ebook.
Respect is a word that is over used and isn't clearly defined today....
there are ppl who have no idea when they've hurt your feelings as people have different degrees of sensitivity and those ppl may have less than you. you can stew over it or go to that person and explain how you feel. He/she should acknowledge your feelings and apologize. We can't expect ppl to feel the same way we do, after all, that's what makes us all unique. But we can expect our feelings to be validated just because we say we feel them. That person may never 'get it' but should acknowledge that you have those feelings. If it's any consolation, that person probably never meant to hurt you and is oblivious to the fact that they did and doesn't feel anything about it. Knowing that, you could let it go a lot easier.
I have a family friend that has treated me that way.
She thinks she's the smartest person in the world.
I just don't share a lot with her anymore, she seems to feel the need to cut me down.
Probably to make herself feel better. I don't let her get to me anymore.
I still love her though.
They know they were wrong and don't want to have it brought up, so they act like it never happened in hopes you will forget. So yes, it is manipulation, but they're not aware of it.
Always happy to spread the knowledge.
it means the person is really not taking into account the way you feel, like they don't understand how bad you feel about it. Mom is a great example, she can't say we're right to dad and I, just can't, sometimes they are like programmed to operate in some way , they feel so passionate about it and to change that it takes soemthing beyond your own comprehension, something deep inside the other persons' beliefs. For now, dont let it get to you because its gonna take a while to solve.
He is called a opinionated..I wouldn't be friends with him or her in this situation.
Doesn't matter to me I ask if it's worth it, is it a serious obstacle to your friendship if it's not move on
Great friendships must have respect for each other. Someone who knows hot to push your buttons but chooses not to out of respect. By you calling him on his error it should serve to let him know his limits.
Denial - I believe they know - but I know they will never take the step to correct - I was married to it
A component of self-righteousness and arrogance thats something I do all the time and most people don't realize i'm testing them to see how far I can push their buttons
