You do not have to like someone, to respect them.
So if you honestly don't care what anyone besides household family thinks of you anyway... then why should I actually respect you knowing all the above?
It's the arrogance that pushes people off from you not your "intelligence" or honesty. I'm pretty sure you're one of those who is honest in a disrespectful manner (Yes, you can still be honest with people and polite at the same time but I doubt you give a damn how anyone around you feels). " and an 8 on a good day." Trust me, most people don't get jealous just cause you're "pretty". What you're doing is coping, you're telling yourself that you're getting pushed away from people cause of your positive traits, which is not true. "But I would never waste a second of thought on unimportant people."Ah yes, you're above and anyone who doesn't see that or dislikes you is unimportant and less then... You have to command respect to be able to get it, it's not other people's fault that you have a detestable character.
They fear you, but at least you're getting results.
No, they respect me and will come to me for help and or when they need to learn parts of the job. They would not do that, if they feared me.

And how would I earn your respect? And if I'm not yet respected back from you yet , am I sopossably going to be disrespected till I'm respected by you IF?
It starts fairly simple, treat me with respect and I'll treat you with respect. Treat me like an idiot and I'll treat you like an idiot 😉
That sounds like just a mutually agreement... not respect. Also sounds as if the buck only starts with you first?
How's that? You started the conversation, trying to push me in a corner, is that a sign of respect? And you expect that by approaching me like that earns you my respect?Treat others like you yourself want to be treated.You approach me, the way you choose to do so, is the way you can expect a response from me back. It's really quite simple. If I where to approach you, I'd approach you in a way I'd want you to approach me. And with all due respect, but without sounding condescending at first contact. And because you do sound fairly condescending in your replies from the start... I don't feel the need to be overly nice back. Catch my drift?
Now you see... Respect isn't earned. Your asking me to grant respect to you in the first place before all or you feel you won't reply according to how your forcing me to approach and to expect a reply back from you. Now because of your expectation now I'm so called condescending.
I'm not forcing you to do anything. I'm just saying that action has reaction. Which ever way it goes starts with yourself. Lol
Depending on your belief. Generally in the culture im in , I just extend my respect and trust towards an in dividual then see what they teach me quickly about they're selfs.
