    Default Are you a yes man?

    A yes-man refers to someone of unquestioning obedience, one who slavishly agrees with a superior.

    Do you feel like being a "yes man" is the only way to get ahead in your career?

    Do you follow orders even when it's the wrong thing to do?

    Do you do exactly as you're told even though your way of doing things would show better results?

    Discuss.

    I argue my point if I feel my position is better. My current manager is really a co-worker and we brainstorm and work out the best solution... sometimes it's his... sometimes it's mine.

    I have worked in past with managers that were a bit clueless and it's the worst. A few times I just told my manager that they have no idea the details of my job then maybe he should do it. I did get reprimanded after stating such, by that manager but his manager said I was right. When the next round of layoffs came around in a month or so that manager was first one gone.

    Heres the thing: I cant stand any authority over me. Sometimes life forces me to but then its just a game of manipulating them into submission. Quite fucked up I think but its how I am.. :/

    I'm like that myself, I really don't like people bossing over me and giving me orders and shit like that. That's not to say I can't obey, but it has to be done in a respectful manner and from a reasonable guy.

    In fact, they are not even the Europeans in strict sense, meaning European as in bearing the responsibility and understanding of European interests. Poland has always been an subordinate country, on one side sucking German dick, on the other side -- Russian one, some kind of "novice" europeans, who are full of inferiority complexes, hysteria and obsessity neuroses. This is also true for all Baltic countries

    If its reasonable and for mutual benefit then sure, exceptions can be made.

    The thing is: most people are "know it all better" types and communicate by what my brain sees as "orders".

    I really like hearing something like "please consider leaving me alone for now" vs for example "leave me alone". In fact my brain rebels when something like the second example is used :/

    I also HATE when people ask me to help them, especially when they can do it themselves OR when its their own stupidity which has resulted in them being in the situation where external help is needed. In fact someone who always gets him or herself in trouble and counts on others to help him or her is some of the worst possible personality put there. Someone like that will never be my friend, associate, pal etc. Unfortunately in the real life world such people are very common. :/

    I've been like this since childhood, got this diagnosis back then https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opposi...fiant_disorder

    I think it's a healthy impulse.

    I'm a "no woman".

    But I have no problem helping people out or anything like that, I just don't like people barking orders at me.
