Tips from This Book About Coping with Difficult People



Dealing with Ignorance

Avoid arguing with them. Ignorant people tend to debate certain points without knowing anything substantial about the topic at hand. Try not to fall into the trap of an argument that won't really go anywhere.
Force yourself to interact positively. Though you may not be feeling particularly nice, remember that you should not resort to rudeness or hostility. Extend your patience and be kind at all times, no matter how you're really feeling.
Don't take their ignorance as a personal insult. If anything, ignorance is simply a sign of laziness on the part of the person you're speaking with. Taking their ignorance personally will only result in frustration, stress and anger.

Dealing With Selfishness

Set boundaries. While this may cause tension or conflict, it's important that boundaries be made clear.

It's not all about them

Probably the best takeaway from this book was understanding there isn't anything I can do to control how other people are. I can work to understand where they're coming from, but they are who they are and I am who I am.

Once you understand that, you can either accept it and move on, or dwell on it and let it keep bothering you. One of those options is going to make you a lot happier than the other.

Don't be difficult

What made the experience of listening to How to Cope with Difficult People the most enjoyable?

Learning its a little bit of you and a good chunk of the other person when it comes to dealing with people. Some people are difficult, but you need to know where they might be coming from and how to handle that.

Who was your favorite character and why?

No characters, just me and the narrator learning.

What does JC Anonymous bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Someone actually saying it out loud. Sometimes you don't believe it until you hear it.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from How to Cope with Difficult People?

How to get along with people. You see, I AM the difficult person, so maybe if I knew what people were doing to get along with me, I will be able to change my ways.

Not helpful enough

This book outlines the difference of many difficult people but it doesn't fully address ways and strategies of dealing with the issues. It gives a brief idea how to manage, it doesn't look at the issues raised in a 360 degree way.
The narrator talks so fast, and doesn't pause between each issue which makes it difficult to digest what has been said.
I've come away feeling frustrated because I do want to deal with negative people in a proactive way but this book hasn't assisted.
