To me, a Know-It-All is someone who feels compelled to tell you his opinion — except he states it as fact.
Example: I recently sent an e-mail to my list announcing a tele-seminar I was leading.
TB, a reader, quickly e-mailed me back to let me know his displeasure with my choice of a tele-seminar as a way to convey my content: “Put it in print. Nobody wants to sit and listen to blather.”
Hey, TB: if “no one” wants to listen, and everybody wants to read, why do thousands of people attend tele-seminars, Webinars, and live lectures every day of the year?
What TB is missing is that HE might prefer reading, but others may not. He SHOULD have said: “Is there a print version available? I like to read, not listen.”
TB, people learn in 4 different ways:
2. Listening (audio).
3. Seeing (video).
4. Experiencing (workshops and training).
Most of us learn through multiple modalities, and most of us have one or two we prefer.
