III Read the article about how to deal with “know-it-alls”. For questions 1-5 choose the correct answer A, B, C or D.
You know them. That friend who always likes 1)… their unsolicited advice, who always has an opinion. Someone who always knows 2)… you do, even when they don`t. And, while dealing with these people can be a little bit overbearing, there are some things you can do. First, you might want to try showing these people a little attention; after all, attention is what they`re really after! And usually, when they receive the attention they want, they will be happy.
Be careful, though – if you make a habit of showing them too much attention, they might not stop bothering you until they`re satisfied. Which, of course, will take a lot more attention that it would have before you tried this method.
Another method is a bit different – try to understand 3)… person. If these people knew how difficult they were being, they would act much differently! As such, honesty may be a good approach to dealing with these people. Make an effort to understand this person and how they feel. And then, respectfully share with them how they are making you feel.
Again, be careful here. If they become upset, remind them that if they had been more understanding, you wouldn`t have needed to talk to them like this. And, moreover, if they had been more respectful, you wouldn`t need to be so direct now. After the conversation, give them some space – they will probably be unhappy, and they will need time 4)… their feelings. Afterward, if they still 5)… how you feel, just repeat to them that if this behaviour didn`t make you angry, you wouldn`t have needed to talk about it.
