I think that's why I tend to be inordinately patient with this sort of thing coming from the various techs I deal with. I don't doubt that he knows his stuff, and that once he tinkers a little he'll figure out what the problem is. Getting him to tinker is the trick.

I think, though, that my big problem is that I then internalize the exchange and attempt to reason what deficiency of my own elicited that kind of response. Really, that's what this was about... the inherent fear I have of being judged.

I don't think that you should've taken it so personally. As if he could possibly know you or understand the amount of knowledge you have about the subject at hand after knowing you for three seconds. From a former retail worker, when I grew impatient with someone it was usually due to the fact that I had gone through the current scenario a million times before and was sick of dealing with what seemed to be insanely stupid people. Of course these people weren't actually stupid, they just hadn't been working in a bookstore for two years.

I guess what I am trying to say is that no deficiency of yours elicited that response. More... his inherent superiority in the situation at hand, and his history in dealing with people whom he perceives as morons, regardless of whether this is or is not the case.

Eh, there's no permanent damage. When I record these episodes, it's largely just so I can understand the sort of things I put myself through.
