There’s this strange thing I’ve noticed with a few individuals in the work place: they try to claim your ideas.

If you share a unique insight or idea they say “yes,” and then rephrase exactly what you said offering nothing extra. I really wonder why they bother, especially when they either show their ignorance in what they say.

Personally, I’d praise the person making the suggestion, perhaps agree that I had heard that (without restating the information) or discuss how to implement. I really don’t get the need to repeat the same thing.
