Most of the time Knowledge is power and that power put to use it can be very important.
When one knows things there is a need to convey and show others that you have a level of knowledge in one given subject or many for that matter, the difficulty arises when the knowledge you had acquired is not required even if that your input will make a change.
Some people need to be recognized for their understanding of a subject and how they manage to express it. others couldn’t care less and they are more than happy to be passed by(while you know you know , nothing else matter).
I know there are loads of grey areas in between of this simple statement. my wonderment comes into the questions when and how one should show their learnings?
All the Time:
” Hello!!! I’m Here I know! Please pick me if not I will perform Harakiri…”
” You need me,You know you will benefit, without my knowledge your business or whatever it is will crumble and then you will regret the time you did not choose my acquired skills”
“I’m here with this bundle of information that is useful for your endeavours, should you ask me I will decide if I can bother myself to help you”
“OK how can we share and do this, moving forward”
“Ah you need me to share my Knowledge with you in this? Let’s meet up later(never) to discuss”
Telling yourself. ” How possibly be that what I know of interest to other people , I rather have this to myself and not give away my thought” You never know which evils people will do with this info”.(Paranoid much?).
I don’t know I just find funny some situations.
