Doesn't make me any less valid.
No, you're not blunt. You're disrespectful and rude and it seems like you're more interested in being competitive (it's like you want to win or something). You need to learn how to teach people.
If you want people to listen to you when you're right, then you have to calm down and treat the person as though they're your friend. When was the last time you listened to someone who treated you with disrespect while they were trying to correct you? It's not easy to do, is it? I don't know how you can expect anyone to listen to you when you're rude like that. You call it blunt, I call it rude. It was uncalled for. A successful teacher is calm and respectful, not "blunt" (or rude, aggressive, competitive, etc.).
Whatever, though. Just forget it.
I think this post serves as a good example of how difficult it is to listen to someone when they're confrontational, rude, aggressive, or "blunt". As you can see, it doesn't matter how right I may be here, it makes you want to fight back instead of listen.
