Do you always feel the need to be right all of the time

So you think you know more things than most people do, and you seem to be smarter than most people etc.

I don't "feel" the need to be right but I am more than not. The explanation isn't exactly the same as the question. Yes, I know more about certain things than most people, but other things not. I guess I am smarter than most with a near-genius IQ, but that doesn't mean I know everything or do use my intelligence better than most people. Some things I'm totally in the dark about. Like the stock market. I have absolutely no clue what it's all about whatsoever. Also, I work with engineering formulas and calculations all day but have little understanding of accounting basics. Accounting is all numbers to me and that's all.

I would say however my wife is someone who needs to be right all of the time, to the point of exhausting every point, excuse and argument to be right.

No. Smart about what, is the question.

I think you are a very intelligent, interesting man....except when it comes to your diet...and I know it's none of my business.

No, but when I know I am right, I get a bit stubborn.

Regarding survey...let's face it, some of us are right some of the times, and are wrong some of the times. I never have a problem saying I'm sorry.

Not all the time, but a lot of it. This is something I've been trying to work on (for years now!), and I think I'm getting better about it. It's not necessarily that I think I know more or am smarter, as there are tons of people I most definitely don't feel this way around. It's more related to wanting to seem smart or educated myself (not in comparison to others), but it's also that misinformation really bothers me--I don't like it when I think people have misunderstood something or have been given incorrect information about something. I also don't like it when someone thinks I'm lying about something, and this can also come out where there's something that I'm pretty sure I'm right about but that someone doesn't believe. So it's more of a neurosis than it is me just being full of myself. Please remember that the next time you get annoyed with me for being a big know-it-all!

I agree, survey central is a good communication site. I look forward to seeing the site every day.

No, not at all. I learn new stuff all the time. Some people know more on a subject and vice-versa so it should be an exchange.
