I notice it with most customers and suppliers I work with, as well as my-self from time to time. I even notice it in these forums.
What is it that makes engineers so arrogant? I was asked this earlier today by someone that thougth i was being arrogant because I told them a convesion from mm to inches was easy. In these forums, if you read most of our posts... you will even notice there is a sence of this arrogance in a good portion of the responses....
Is it because we are for the most part well educated and that makes us this way? Or is it that we are all "nerds" and do not have the best interpersonal communication skills? Or are we just a large group of cocky know it alls?
I don't know, perhaps arrogance is not the word I am looking for, but you all know what I am getting at.
