I get this from Amstel too. The aura of arrogance and "I know better than you" makes conversations pretty one sided. Plus, it's just exhausting when we criticize this behavior and all he does is say that we're doing it too.You have no clue how great or how bad a contributor I am. How could you? You immediately dismiss anything and everything I say.
If you'd have a legitimate conversation even half the time I'd be willing to accept that judgment from you.
Deflection at its finest.
