How do you feel about people who think they know everything?

I've been around some people who talk about things as if they knew a lot about it but ended up sounding silly. But I get irritated when they act so cocky about claiming to know everything. I had this friend who told me that I shouldn't take on a controllership job because all controllers did was to report. Then there's my mom's friend who actually encouraged her to come to America then overstay because it was easy. It was a good thing my mom didn't listen! What do you think about people like them?

I also get irritated when I'm around people like that. I actually have an officemate like that and she's really getting on my nerves at times. I'm just trying to ignore her. She usually say something even if you're not talking to her, she also tends to comment on just about everything (and the comments are not really nice)!

Well i think the people like taht are very unsecure and they are gonna act like they know everything and they are better then others.You just avoid contact with people like that.I am trying to do that, because they will not motivate you, but just do oposite and it would be no helpfull to you.If you have to deal with somebody like that anyway just show them, you can be smae good like them.

I have met people like them too. And I really hate them. Sometimes I would oppose to them but it seems that they have every reason to give to prove they are correct because they think that they know everything. My brother in law was like that. It irritates us to hear him talking because he would always comments our discussions and would justify that he knows it. So sometimes we just ignore him.
