The Downside:

With so many positive qualities it is hard to imagine a downside to this style. That depends on whom you talk to. Some would say that rightness can turn quickly to self-righteousness, and insistence on complete accuracy soon becomes tedious and boring. Stubbornness becomes an art form, and the push for perfection makes them ever so picky about the smallest details. Their screensavers might read: “I’m right. I’m right. I’m right.”

Tips for Better Listening:

Your security is in being right. If you don’t get this confirmation, you soon tune out. Resist the temptation and keep listening. Learn to accept other people’s ideas as valid. Find the logic and truth in their points of view. Develop a sense of humor. The world is a pretty funny place.
