Saturday In House Gists -Dealing With A Partner With An 'I Too Know' Mentality..

Do you have a partner whose ''I too know'' mentality is driving you crazy?..You might not be the only one oh!!!









How do you cope with this person?or did you both break up because you couldn't take it anymore?
Are you dating this I too Know person or married to them?

What are the early signs of one with an ''I too know'' mentality before it gets really serious?

Is having an ''I too know'' love an advantage or a disadvantage!

Is this i too know person physically or verbally violent when you refuse to accept their attitude?

Gosh my hubby is an I too know ' hubby cos if his high IQ but his own is in a good way though sometimes i cant stand that he seems to know it all and always has something to say about everything...Never lets me get away with an argument without adding his i too know inside.....
Most times i learn new things,often times i just want him to ''Ssssssssh''
LOL

Lets gist!!!

  2. I prefer an I “TOO KNOW” partner.
    You get to learn a lot from them.
    But most times, some persons get threatened by their partners “I TOO KNOW” and before you know it, they start getting tired, feeling a little bit low. It affects one’s self esteem though.
    It’s refreshing when I’m public your partner is able to contribute much when topic is up for discussion.....you start relying fly πŸ€ͺ
    The not so good part is that some “I TOO KNOW” are usually proud 🀷🏿‍♀️ but it’s great though.

    1. I've an I TOO KNOW partner and he is also very observant,
      Sometimes it's cool, other times it really drives me nuts .
      I've learnt to live with it πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    2. The bad side to I TO KNOW is, they are not as vastly knowledgeable as they claim. Their ITK is based majorly on their little knowledge and overly assumptions and because in the past, no one has countered them, they continue to spew wrong information.

      I don’t like ITKs and I’m quick to shut anyone of them down by asking the source of their information. That includes my partner 😁.

    3. Anon 15:03 based on what you wrote up there; you are the ITK who knows nada cos you refuse learning from your so called ITKs you are shutting down!!!

      Delete
    4. Pls shut the hell up. iTK are Terrible. They already know then what else can they learn again. Life with them doesn’t go far reason is because they already know and they are always very proud. I use to be one I have changed and life is much better in learning . People in that zone don’t go they hardly do because they feel they already know what u want to tell them. So how can growth come: some are lovely and fun to be with some are not at all.

    1. This your otele this, otele that has become so stale. Be creative, you can't be reasoning in same way I know you on this blog about 3 or 4 years ago. Its gets to a time grown men decides not to be objectifying women because they've grown and know it's wrong and there's more to women than their private parts. #justacaution.

  5. 'ITK' has destroyed so many relationships and marriages.
    It is good to be knowledgeable and better when you are in a relationship or married to someone more knowledgeable than you are but as a woman,no be everytime you go show yourself!
    One of my ex bfs used to tease me that I know everything.🀣🀣🀣
    I felt insulted at first and I started playing dumb until he noticed that I dont contribute much into our conversation, he then apologised.
    I learned from that experience and I vowed to say less and listen more.
    Since I got married,I have been using this formular and it's working for me.
    I learn more from hubby when i act ignorant and he is always willing to teach me.
    I act the fool sometimes just to have my way and when I strike,he doesnt suspect me.......lol.

    1. I had similar experience with my ex bf, his ITK is outta this world, not even a Nigerian but want to lecture me about Nigeria. Not igbo want to lecture me too.

      initially, i was stubborn but at a time, i started keeping quite and listening more, not that i didn't know/have what to say but let peace reign. After a while, he noticed it and changed.

      once he's done airing his view, he be like "baby say something" I believe nobody knows it all and we all need each other.

  9. My DH is a very smart man but admits that I am smarter than he is. He does not need to actually admit
    for the results are there. I know where he is better and we sort of complement each other.
    If you involved God in your marriage and keeps the married bed pure, you should know and appreciate that
    God does not make mistakes. He knows exactly why he paired you both as husband and wife; you complement each
    other. For e.g. if you are very brilliant, he may be very intelligent and wise/street wise and so on.
    If you do not know these facts, you will continue to have unhealthy competition unnecessarily and it can be
    marriage-wrecking. Ekwucha m -I don yarn finish o.

    3. Melancholy πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      Naija “retired(?)” girl, we love GOD ALMIGHTY and HE loves us too. We also love his true agents and prophets who by their words and actions, spread His word of truth and win souls for God’s army of faithfuls. They spread words and decently inform others of the dangers of iniquity. Perversion and unclean words are farrrrr from their mouth.

      What we don’t care about are lovers of themselves, those who boast and scorn those they don’t know, and those who enjoy and utter perverted words and constantly use words that don’t edify God. Even in instances that don’t call for it.

      As intelligent as you boast to be can’t you use words like sex or “lady parts”? Why do you have to look for the crass and dirty way of saying sexual things? Your vocabulary is for the gutter and ungodly. Using words that even Naira Marley would be shy to use. If your first daughter (aka small naija girl) goes about shouting “fork” and “😺😺” will you smile and thank the Lord? Simple ajuju oh.

      And it is very disrespectful to put our Lord Almighty’s name in inverted commas “”. Extremely disrespectful.

    4. @23:31
      So which place in the above yarns did "fork" come in or did you not mock what I wrote there

      Okay, na fork be your problem?
      Let me now call it spoon okwa ya?
      spoon, spoon, spoon, spoon, spoon

      And since you do not like 🐱🐱, let me change it to

      like tigers anytime you suspect I am the commenter.
      What I wrote above warranted nothing you did up there inugo?
      If I call vagina by its name it becomes trouble. See me see wahala o
      Okay you want lady parts okwa ya?
      Lady parts
      Lady parts
      Lady parts

      And lady parts fit be nyansh o, or hand o.
      Please channel your energies to those who fork oops
      fornicate and shoot off/suffocate babies. And stop pretending
      that you love the Truth of the gospel because you don't.

  10. Dealing with an ITK partner is not funny though I'm not married to one but I pity my mum cos my dad is, there's nothing you say that he doesn't counter he's always right and never apologizes when it's proven that he's wrong.

  11. I had an ITK ex, man claims to know about everything it was so frustrating, to d extent that he claimed to sing better than I do, weyre lo'n jiyan what's my own, I don't argue na look I dey, everyday he spends hours singing for my with his stupid voice, I felt like strangling him over d phone πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ thank God we rarely used to see, last last when d relationship packed up d lady he said he met and would marry after months I don't know what happened to them, seemed like his ITK wahala chased her too, short men ehnπŸ˜‚

  12. I think I'm the I too know cos sometimes when I ask his opinion on something he will say "but you know everything what do you now want me to say". I will just tell him gerrout. I've received a thank you from him several times how my I too know has helped him so I will say mine is the good type.

  13. My ex husband is the original Itk,over sabi,I know it all attitude is on another level...My man just use to tire me out with all his arguments

    ReplyDelete
  14. My ex boyfriend is an ITK. Oversabi. I just broke up with him last week and God knows I'm done this time. What a horrible horrible human being. Just talking about him is making me lose weight. I've never met anyone who brings out the worst in me the way this guy does. He"s never , and I Mean NEVER wrong.EVER! In fact I didn't know human beings like this existed until I met him. If by some miracle he finds out he is wrong, and u insist he says sorry, he says sorry in 2seconds and u must and i mean, u must listen to him talk for the next 2hours about how it wasn't necessary for him to apologise because technically, he wasn't wrong. You must see things from his perspective or you are wrong, and the worst part is ,this guy is not even that intelligent. He lives on another continent and I'm in Nigeria, but this guy frustrates me so much, to the point that I start hoping he doesn't even remember I'm alive. When we aren't talking ,I feel peace. Once I see his message, it doesn't matter where I am, if I make the mistake of responding or even opening it, my day is shot to hell. I start sweating and experiencing palpitations. I keep thinking, is this who I want to throw my whole life away for to go and join in another country?

    Talking about another country nko? Hei God! This boy will talk and talk about how my life in his country of residence will be way better than it is in Nigeria, simply because it is A*****a. Not because he has a job or a plan but simply because it is A****a. That's all. If I ask, Aren't there people suffering in A*****? U that Ure there, what have u achieved? I don buy market for another 5hours..... I will hear about how ordinary malaria is killing us here in Nigeria, how Nigeria is hopeless....I know Nigeria is bad, but did i tell u my life here is? Did i tell u I'm looking for an escape route.

    He says its cus I don't have true love for him, that's why I'm not patient with his attitude. But how can i be ? When the only time this guy actually feels we have meaningful and amazing conversations is when I'm on mute and he is doing all the talking. Like when I don't say a word! And the worst part is he spends hours saying unintelligent things. Ididotic things. After the whole talk, I can't pick one tangible thing to take away from the convo. Sometimes I check the hours he spends talking , and I can literally feel my life wasting away.

    This man says he loves me and wants to marry me but I know I will die if I marry him. And if I don't die, I'll commit murder. I just had to end it. And trust me, the drama, and insults that came with my decision no be here. I didn't even say anything. I just kept quiet and took it all in. At least to help him enjoy our last conv, I let him do all the talking and insult me to his satisfaction.


    I'm sorry for my epistle, this post hit close to home.

      No anticipation of message(s) from him translating to peace of mind and adding small weight

    5. My dear, I understand your pain. Had an I too know once in Abuja, no woman is intelligent enough for him. Every woman is dumb. The mental exhaustion I went through to keep up eh all in the name of I must get married. Las las, I asked myself " if it's this hard in a relationship, how long will I be alive in the marriage?". I just had to walk away without looking back. Here again I met another one. This one is as dumb as a c**t but you dare not correct him. I don't even bother to argue cos he speaks for both of us. He is always right, his food is better, every thing of his is better. Make suggestions, his own must be adhered to and then everything will fail. Me, I just walked. Being away from such people is heaven on earth abeg. Rubbish

    6. Your comment was soooo funny!
      You made the right choice. Peace of mind is not worth trading anything for. When you meet the right person, you will appreciate this decision you made all over again. All the very best.

    7. I know how you feel. I'm married to one. 23 years and counting. I can't call it my best years. My best years have been the ones we've spent living apart. I'm enjoying my single life and I hardly miss him. His owm ITK comes with arrogance and insults. He insults me like I'm his house girl and talks me down like I'm so stupid. Me that (without praising myself o) people always tell me how intelligent i am. I'm just about rounding up my PhD and I lecture too o. I don't even bother talking with him whenever he's around because you can be sure he'll have something to complain about - even if it's just good morning. You talk na wahala. Its depressing but I've learnt to ignore for my own peace of mind.

    8. I said it πŸ‘†πŸΏ that ITKs are not vastly knowledgeable as they claim and one Dumbo is telling me nonsense about her ancestors. See how this one almost ruined this poor girl’s life in the name of ITK without something tangible to show. Omo, I’m very quick to shutdown anyone of them the moment I identify them. They always want to take over the conversation and be loud.

  15. I am an ITK, sometimes I hold myself back strongly not to correct what I know is wrong!
