..... to the ignorant these qualities can make you look like an asshole. i would not worry what they think. some people just don't want to learn anything. and trying to educate them makes it even worse.
Very good explanation. The problem is THEIRS, not yours. People are too uptight about acceptance these days, and take everything as an insult.
....I've got a friend who people that don't know him feel he's an ass. However, he just tells you like it is and doesn't beat around the bush.
I'm that guy. Only people who have become my friend, for some unknown reason, will not say I'm an ass. Even most of them will tell you that they felt the same way upon meeting me. I guess I pretty much said "fuck you", but they refused to go away, so now we're friends.

Yeah, fuck that!
Here is the problem Gus. Direct people get the rap that you are talking about. Some people try to soften a message, some try to sugar coat it, some can't even say what they think because either they don't wanna offend the other person, or they just plain don't have the guts to speak the truth.
You speak from a place of knowledge and experience, and you speak directly. Since most people are not like that, when you speak directly it is not what most people are used to hearing.
Problem lies with those narrow minded, circle jerk bastards, not with people like us/you, resurrection.
I've been told that I'm an ass hole in your face kinda guy that wants to set you straight.
It sucks to think I'm that way but even my boss of 25yrs says he does not like confronting me.
One of the most frustrating recurrences in my life is the unapproachable attitude people have toward me. I always seem to be communicated with using an intermediary - meaning someone who is close to me gets put in the middle. That's what makes me feel the worst. Why can't people just tell ME
what it is they wish to say?
You have nothing you need to change. The rest of the population does.
