Why do people feel they have to be correct?
Have you ever asked a question, such as this one, and found someone who was helpful, one that was funny, and the one that seemed to “know it all”, but wasn’t helpful because their answer would be facetious? Or perhaps, someone would answer one of your questions with a remark that implied ‘you should know this’? Why do people do that? Is it a complex? Is it that psychological aspect that is reflexed and they do not realize it? Or, is it something else?
