- Oath xxxcdMaybe he does know better? Were you listening when he talked? Or did you acted just like him and keep talking?
- I listened for the last 3 months. I've now started noticing a pattern in his behavior. And this is not just with me. It's with everyone else. He's always defending his ideas, his code , never accepting anyone else's ideas. He could be right in certain cases and we also do consider his opinions. But this has now become a problem where everyone wants to avoid anything that involves him. I don't debate with him unless it's absolutely necessary , so I wouldn't say I'm anything like him.
- Microsoft jT47lgThe way to fix bad ideas is with more good ideas.
If people are accepting his ideas over yours simply because he talks louder, then you’ve got a bigger problem than just him. You’ve got a bad team and bad management.
