The well ment advise can be really hurtful. I usually try not to infer bad intent, but i do pinch them back. Because i don't accept the hurtful behavior. Id say something like "you could really work on your feedback skills. It can bring you lots in life!" Give it a positive tone and it's a...

I agree, Id even say people who are popular tend to tell others what they like to hear.

I suffered a massive stroke a year ago. As a result, I began reading some interesting theories about stroke damage and how the human brain works. One of the books was very interesting.

Wauw really great responses. Love it! People seem to confuse the words egoistic and egocentric. People with autism (as backed by the biased sample in this thread) are less egocentric. But i kind of have to admit that the condition makes me a bit egoistic. (All depending on context ofcourse). I wish ...
