Dr. John Townsend
The Know-it-all - This type can exhaust you by the intensity and energy they put into being right on an issue - every issue, actually. Sometimes you wonder if they even believe what they are saying- but you know they will never admit they could be wrong, heaven forbid! You have tried to present your ideas in a variety of ways, but these are brushed aside as they make their points. Let us guide you in responding to this type!
The Score Keeper - This person keeps careful tabs on who did what, when and to whom. They keep a mental log of offenses, some real and some imagined. When it comes to others, they have a remarkable memory - but when it comes to their own misdeeds, they seem to have remarkable memory lapses. Since you are not as good at scorekeeping (nor do you want to be), it’s hard to know how to handle this type. We can help you keep the conversation on a smooth path where you can resolve issues.
