The person who has a passion for learning and improving is half way there. They seek collaborations and mentorship.They learn from their mistakes. They grow. The know-it-all remains stagnant. They are perfect. They stay power-drunk within their territory. They criticize deconstructively. They bully the eager newbies out of their territories. It’s the know-it-all’s way of dealing with insecurities. And after the know-it-all has done away with all traces of threat, they return to their power-drinking, power-hangover routine, far far away from rationality and growth.
