Do you think you’re smarter than everyone else? Do you think you’re better than everyone else? Do you think that only your arguments make sense? Do you not even consider the possibility that you might be wrong?
I could go on but you probably recognized yourself by now. You might have this God complex but don’t worry, it’s curable.
So what is the God complex you ask?
Well, in short “the god complex is a non-clinical term generally used to describe an individual who consistently believes he or she can accomplish more than is humanly possible or that their opinion is automatically above those with whom he or she may disagree. The individual may believe he or she is above the rules of society and should be given special consideration or privileges.” (wikipedia)
You will find this most likely present with surgeons and other doctors in general and you know that they can be the most arrogant persons out there.
“They tend to believe that they are the best at what they do, that they are entitled to special treatment, and that they deserve the best of everything. They may also behave with a high level of grandiosity or pretentiousness which draws attention to themselves, and they treat other people carelessly, using and exploiting them at will.” (wisegeek.com)
My kind advice for you people out there who think are better than everyone else is: lighten up, smile, no matter how many things you know about the world or your profession, you won’t impress me much!
So tell me, are you better than everyone else?
