    How to teach a good lesson to one of my colleagues who thinks he is the most intelligent person in our company?

    I am working in a software company. One of our colleague is very self absorbed and he thinks that he is the most intelligent person in our company. He always makes fun of the others whenever they commit some mistake. I want to teach him a lesson that he will never forget. What can be done in such a situation?

    Hello friend,

    You are his colleague so cannot teach him a lesson. You should not interfere or indulge yourself in any such rivalry or cold war with him. You should not think about teaching him a lesson.

    This could affect your career and your image in front of your boss. Let him do whatever he does you must not make a fight with him. Always have friendly attitude towards every one. If he is not a good person then ignore him and do not talk to him. Only have colleague kind of relation with him.

    The place where you work cannot be perfect. Every person is not same. Some are good and some are not. This world has all kinds of people in it and no where it is perfect. Every where you will go , you will find such wrong person. That does not mean you have to teach lesson to them. You must learn to adjust yourself and survive among every kind of people maintaining you own dignity.

    You should only focus on your work. Try to improve yourself in your field. Think of how you can get promotion and appraisals.
    Think of something innovative new instead of wasting time in thinking about that colleague. You must always focus on your life and your goals.

    All the best

    Hi,
    I am suggest you just an simple solution. Just give your best or sent percent from your side and then that colleague automatically learn a good lesson from your good nature as well as your hard working towards your responsibilities.
    You do not need to take much pressure on your mind, just do above once and see the positive results. From this, that colleague also feel ashamed and your other colleagues also give you more respect then previous.
    Because many people are very intelligent but their nature not impress anybody, then his/her intelligence not good. But if you have good nature with intelligent mind that makes more impression to other persons.

    According to me you should not waste your time in teaching the lesson to anyone who thinks he is very intelligent because if he thinks that then its his right to think and he can do whatever he wants , if you think that by teaching a lesson to such people will make you superior then its a bad thinking as it will be a wastage of your time over him, so it will be better if you concentrate on your weaker areas because it will make you more knowledgable and also make you good in your areas.
    First of all he is thinking that he is superior so he is thinking because may be someone has praised him for his work in past. So if you like to teach him a lesson then you need to work hard on your areas and do something for the company that nobody has done in the history of that company , then everybody will praise you for your good work and after that you will show the world that you are also very good in the work.
    Then he will also see the success of yours and never show his intelligence to you. So my point was you need to take things positively if you take things negatively then it will be harder to survive and you will be in trouble by that, so always think of your work nothing else.
