Need to always be right

Insecure people will often need to have the last word and will sometimes find it hard to accept others views or opinions, often believing their view is the only ‘right’ view point. They will also often get very frustrated if you express a different opinion or even challenge their own beliefs. I would be mindful if this kind of situation arises as there is no point becoming angry or frustrated. I will gently challenge someone’s opinion if I disagree with it, yes, but would never get into a heated discussion.  If someone really isn’t listening to me and I am finding myself with feelings of frustration, I can gently divert the conversation in another direction, or even take a moment to be silent.
