Have you ever been accused of incompetence? Mocked, yelled at or just spoken to in condescension?
You’re enraged. You want to punch the accuser in the face and set fire to their “greatness” (as if that was possible). So, obviously, you do the next best thing. In a rage fueled quest, you set out to prove this person(s) wrong.
And when you succeed (which you do), tired and disgustingly exhausted, you return to them, demanding an apology or just wanting to flaunt your superiority.
BUT THAT’S WHAT THEY WANTED ALL ALONG. It was all some crazy tough love/ reverse psychology scheme they pulled TO GET WHAT THEY WANT.
