stick a pin in your pants pocket and poke yourself hard whenever the urge comes.

Admittedly in the beginning you'll be poking yourself after you're a dick...

but soon you'll pause and be able to do it before.

iIt could solve your problem or make you a masochist.

I was going to suggest negative reinforcement, but if you start diggin' it then you might end up with even more social anxiety. Big Grin

I don't have enough fun. I work too damned much.

I found this on the internet but it doesn't help any.

Whatever it is you can be sure it's not fun.

RE: How can I resist the urge to be a dick?
Are you a jerk to everyone? is there anyone to whom you are not a dick?
Do you have friends? (not asking to be rude, just genuinely curious)

Some people just don't have a lot of empathy, it's how they are made.

At least you recognize your behavior isn't great, so you have self-awareness going for you. Smile

Are you ever a dick to people who don't give a shit, or only to people you know might actually be affected?

Because I've never felt the slightest bit offended by your perceived bullshit, and I figure it may be because I am of the above mentioned variety.

It's circumstantial. There has to be an opportunity to be a dick.

Not really.

Yes and they tend to be dicks too.

Quote:Some people just don't have a lot of empathy, it's how they are made.
I fall in this category. It's a disability.

The first step is to recognize that you have a problem. That's what they say anyhow.

RE: How can I resist the urge to be a dick?
I'd suggest much along the lines of what JennyBee suggested, if you are sincere. Anything else I might have to say wouldn't be welcome here, since it's supposed to be supportive, not caustic (though it's generic and wouldn't necessarily be aimed at you, and is based in armchair psychology).

Now that you mention it, the person has to give a shit for it to satisfy my urges.
