How does the old saying go about those who can dish it out, but can't take it? Here are two simple tests for it:

  • If you say something you wouldn’t tolerate being said to you. That makes you a douchebag.

  • If you get precious when someone quotes back what you just said to them, verbatim. That makes you a hypocrite.

This includes outward and passive aggression. Don’t choose (tacitly or overtly) to be one of those people.
