Some Like To Hear Themselves Talk....


Mr. Know-it-allWe all have been exposed to the proverbial "know it all", who won't take time to listen to anyones point of view. There are times I'm fully convinced they are just talking to hear themselves talk! They may know their subject matter well but let's face it, we can always learn something from others!


It's important to make sure we are not compartmentalized into this category of a "know it all" if we want to garner the respect from our peers and clients.

I constantly remind some of my agents.......You were given 2 ears and 1 mouth, so listen twice as much as you talk!

Dorie - My enthusiasm gets drained quick as soon as one walks into the room.  Honestly, I try to avoid them.  Now I am wondering if anyone is avoiding me!  8-)

It seems to me that the more people tell you they know, the less they really do know. I call it "Talking to hear their heads rattle."

Boy Dorrie I sure would like to know the inspiration for this post or should I say "who inspired" this post. Confession: I know that I can sometimes fall into this category. I will do better,

The know it all may be an invaluable resource to get information, some might be mentors or educators. So, it depends on the information you're receiving, doesn't it? Is the information relevant and useful?

There's a huge difference between a know it all who gossips about people and things and one who provides informative and useful information or am I missing something?

Dorie, I call it "bossy big sister syndrome.  I have it and try as hard as I can to repress it.

Sometimes when negotiating with people just letting them talk gives you a wealth of information to work with.

One of my all-time favorite words is "pontificate". Trouble is, I can rarely work it into a conversation without sounding like I am pontificating.

Oh! I guess I just did work it in!

Strange they continously talk, talk, talk...they cannot possibly know everything...you learn so much when you take time to listen to others for a second!

That's why I hate working on committees.  There is always someone like that on the committee and I just want to tell them to get over themselves.  You know the ones that won't let anyone get a word in edgewise.

Good advice. You never learn by talking...only by listening.
