Do You Listen?

One of the things that I really hate are people who can't stop talking about themselves and what they have. They make sure that everybody knows they are always better than everyone else. When you encounter these kinds of people, do you listen to them? Do you allow them to make you feel inferior?

No I don't it is like they always carry there own chair, I don't like a person who talks about her self so much specially only the good sides of them I like people who are humble and Let others decide how people judge them.

when i found out i am talking to that kind of person, i won't listen anymore. if conversations cannot be helped, i'll just always reply "yes", "yes" and "yes" but i'll really start ignoring that person. me too, i don't like talking to them. I'm allergic to them. they are really obsessed to themselves.

I have encountered a lot of people who are like that. I don't have to listen to them especially when I already know that that's what they are going to do. But if it's the first time I meet someone and I end up realizing that he/she does something like that, I will allow him/her to talk about himself/herself for a while. But that's about it because there will be no more next time for this person. LOLZ! I will NEVER make these people make me feel inferior.

There are certain people like that who like to boasts off. But you can just avoid those kind of people if you don't like them. Ignore what they say and don't let them make you feel inferior. I am more of a listener. But I know whether a person is just talking with sense or not. I will just pretend I'm listening or would have an excuse to move out to some place if I sense that he is just boasting.

I also hate those who self glorify themselves, just like you hate them my dear polo... what point is there in boasting about your achievements?-wont you rather leave it to the people to do the praise for you? When you you go deep into what they call achievement, it will surprise you how slight these "Achievements" have turned out to be!!

I am actually more of a listener. I do not compete with them while they are talking, I just allow them to talk until they get tired. But I bet the words they utter won't even sink in to me. I do not allow them to make me feel inferior but I let them do their thing or I just ignore them. Next time, I would think twice before hanging out with them.

it is in human nature to feel himself immortal and greater then others. listen to them but dont let it bog u down. remember great men are those who after achiving greatness show humbleness and the fools are those who are like empty vessels making more noise when empty
