I like the dinosaurs. Too many wimps out there. If a guy has to ask an internet forum how to stand his ground and growl when somebody gives him the business, he’s not a killer and should probably just apply for a position elsewhere.No doubt. The "old guard" gruff a-hole construction types is a dinosaur on its way to extinction. Not just something you have to suck it up because its "like that everywhere". It's not like that everywhere.
I kind of like the dinosaurs. Some of them anyway. There's the ones that are just rough, and its mostly banter - and there's the ones that are genuine honest to god abusive deck heads. The kind that really don't give a rats ass if anybody gets hurt, except that it causes them headaches, so they get even more pissed off.I like the dinosaurs.
Actually it can be a learned and controlled attitude and reaction set. I always understood banter, had a hard time with theory X managers. Generally they know nothing very little, especially about leading men, can not think except to the job at hand and no pre-planning, demean others in front of peers, yell, use profanity, and generally are a PITA.It is spontaneous and you cant fake it.
There’s no guidebook for how to be a violent, assertive, dominating character in the face of confrontation. It is spontaneous and you cant fake it.
