If you don't listen to others, you'd be severely limited. Most learning in a classroom requires one to listen. And sometimes you're so stuck that even an outsider can get you unstuck with a suggestion.


I guess that this mindset already sets you apart from an arrogant prick.

what I do is boring; if it were sexy, we'd be talking about generics and interfaces at parties.

Good point Laugh | :laugh: . I did already participate at very boring party where the subject came up Sigh | :sigh:

Boring things (and people) can be relatively fun too.

I guess I misinterpreted you on that one.

The brat will bet to differ. hahaha.

In the end I think I now understand your rant. When it comes to recruiting it is very difficult to distinguish arrogance from confidence. That's when they way you communicate and interact with a recruiter can make a lot of difference. Not that there aren't terrible recruiters out there, but the process should be somewhat an enjoyable exchange of experience, not a battle.

When you believe the recruiter is being a dick, I would just end it there. It's a waste of time.
