Sometimes it bothers me, especially if it is the same person that does this to me regularly. It bothers me most when I know that I am right and that they are wrong. It seems like people do not listen to what I say and feel that their way is the only way or best way. Whenever I say something, they come back and contradict what I have said. Sometimes I feel it is better to keep my mouth quiet.

It hurts my ego, of course, but i am not a fanatic.If this person has a good arguments to convince me that he is right -it`s ok.

If I am absolutely sure I am right then I do get alittle upset. I try not to say anything though. Our daughter contradicts us alot it really bugs her father. HE finally told her every time she does it she has to go to her room for five minutes and do nothing but sit on the bed.

I know I do. But i think its a natural instinct type deal. like a Fight Or Flight syndrome. So I Guess it depends on what type of person you are internally :)
