I know this type all too well. Usually it is best to let what they say go in one ear and out the other. In my experience these types usually have pretty weak or average tech skills at best and poor people skills. Everyone in the office usually dislikes this individual and complains about them behind their back.

I don't think he's jealous of me from a career point of view but definitely on a personal level. I try to talk less and less...just trying to focus on my own journey, I'm not into competing with anyone!
His social skills are good, possibly better than most of our colleagues, but the whole "ME ME ME ME" gets old. I don't mind it, but he has a habit of telling people what they need to do It's not that bad but anyway, I guess I was just annoyed when I wrote the thread...
But yes this happens when people have no social life outside work
