Will you feel irritated if your friend keep saying "I know,I know"?

This topic suddenly came across my mind.Will you feel irritated if you have a friend who acted to be so smart and perfect?Whenever you say something,or voice out a question,he or she will say "Ya,I know the answer,I know" as if he or she is the one who knows everything in this world.For me,I find it so irritated,sometimes is good to have friends who are smart to lead you but sometimes things need to be discussed also. Imagine if in a discussion,a person stand out and say everything he or she knows,and keep on saying his/her ideas,sure I think the discussion won't be so interesting and productive as it should be.Am I right?

Well, you might be right. It's not always pleasant to have one person dominating a conversation. Anyway, I won't feel that irritated provided that that person really has a good answer. Being smart and perfect is one thing, pretending to be one is another thing. I always love smart people and have no issues with them sharing their opinion everytime.

I do agree with you. Yes, it would certainly irritate me. In a conversation, there must be a two way talk. To make a conversation last long, you need to listen to the other speaker too. What's the use of talking to a friend who knows everything. Or if he/she knows everything, let him/her talk about it. Usually defensive people like these, knows nothing. I what I do, I gnore them. It's useless wasting your time to people who are have too much pride. Take care =)

Hey It's always beneficial to be in touch with smart people cause you may get to learn new things. However to here someone boast himself/herself continuously is all the same frustrating. Now, coming to our discussion It would not be annoying as long as I keep on getting the right and satisfying answers of my queries. Remember no one is perfect, just like you feel that you need to learn something from the so-called smart person, the other person may need to learn to be polite.
