One way to take you seriously is if you look like you should not be f**ked with. The stoic, stone-face seems to have that affect on people.

I say just go psycho and shoot everyone that made you feel bad. It worked for me! Now I am surrounded by people in prison who respect and fear me. Some even call me the baddest dude in the west!

this couldntve come at a better time, i live in a refugee group housing and some times people just knock on you door and wanna come in, and you know them for a couple of years or so, not close friends, just the "hi, hows life goin" kinda talk. so they knock, and sit and smoke and bother me (if you're an introvert who wanna be alone and play video games, that kinda annoying) and im a nice guy or atleast i try to be , but some of these people, this annoying irirtating type is either naive or they try to push your buttons (because they see how nice you are and assume and thing goes) and shit but im tired of it and i will have a short term conflict for a long term relief. sorry for the incoherent comment but i'm 25 and at one point you're just tired of people and thier shit, especially when you come across the same type over and over again.

Hardly anybody accepts this but we don’t trust or respect people who we deem harmless. You only do that with people you know can be dangerous. At least your subconscious does that for you. You are a fool to underestimate people’s ability to go beyond acceptable behavior when they are pushed.

Been there done that. Lemme help (to all those people not reading this) 1. Realize the world is rough. People aren’t nice. Nearly everyone, even good ppl, will take advantage of you if you let them. Fair? No. But that’s reality. It’s tough out there. 2. Stop being nice. Don’t be a nice guy. Nice is just another word for harmless. Be kind. The most fear instilling guy can be kind with soft actions. But stop being nice. Figure the difference, and implement. 3. Assert yourself. If you avoid conflict to the point of compromising what you believe to avoid a conflict, stop. Start small. Voice a different opinion that is non consequential. Be polite, understanding, gentle, but also firm in your opinion. Repeat until it’s comfortable. Move on to more consequential conflicts. 4. Confidence. Good chance you lack it. Maybe not. If you ain’t confident, learn to not give a single fuck. Scared you might mess up or fail? Fuck it. The world is going to continue to spin if ya do. What happens, happens, stop caring. It’s hard to create confidence, so start with next best: not giving a rip and just doing it. Then grow as you discover your competence. 5. Backbone. Grow one. You think being nice helps make the world go round? It doesn’t. Sometime bad things, hard things, and jarring things make the world go round. You bring nice will inhibit some people from becoming their best. Don’t let others down by being weak. Grow a backbone for others. Standing up for yourself profits others as much as you. 6. If all else fails go listen to Jordan Peterson. He is smarter than me.

ask yourself something: are you someone who can be stepped on and walked all over? you talk a lot about wanting people to treat you differently and respect you, and to not treat you like you're a pushover, but *are you* a pushover? we don't actively choose if we respect, pity, envy, like, hate -- whatever, we don't choose what we think about people. our brain sees them, analyzes them, crunches the numbers real fast and puts it in the "bears teeth and will bite" category or "bears hooves and will run" category. you are IMMEDIATELY slotted into "big guy" or "little guy" whether that person wants to categorize you or not. you can change your standing in their mind through interaction, because you might reveal to them things about yourself that would facilitate being recognized differently. are you the sheep or the dog? you can be either one, it's up to you and it starts in your brain. the way people look at and speak to you is a result of who you are. if you want to change the way people are with you, be somebody else.

This is scary. Some random person, exact same age, career, mindset, tactics, etc., asking Bill for advice, and He says the exact same advice I've heard from my peers. Guess us 7,000,000,000 people aren't so different.

Been through the same situation as this guy. I think he's just not being himself. He needs to stop focusing on other people, trying to please them. He just needs to introspect on his own goals, like Bill said, and just work towards them. Everything else automatically falls in place.

I feel the same way sometimes. I have always made people laugh and in school i was the class clown, while at the same time maintaining serious focus on working hard. But yeah, people have a tendency to read that as weakness. The older I get the more cynical and jaded the people around me get, but I never changed. I think it comes down to jealousy. Sad people hate to se someone else have fun in life. Like my uncle. The other day I was at a Christmas lunch with family, and I talked about the difficulties I had getting a steady job. I brought up some things I wanted to pursue and that I had been thinking about getting into carpentry. My uncle then injected that i was "Too lazy" to do that kind of a job. I was a little stunned by his bluntness. Because i had never heard that before. I asked him what he was basing that on, seeing as I have always gotten the opposite feedback from my employers. Then he went "well, I mean.. just look at you". I have gained some weight in the last year due to some medication I had to go on. But he didn't know that. He made me feel so shitty and he just made everybody uncomfortable. After that I have been reflecting on my life and yeah. Maybe some people doesn't respect me because I am too nice. But I dont wanna change because of a few assholes.

Well shit, I may as well have been the one who wrote that letter (I'm even a 23 year old guy). I'm not as chastized as this guy seems to be but still. Bill was on point, and his comparison to Travis Bickle was fuckin' hilarious. Good stuff.

From what I know, everyone has the problem of how to confront people but confront them in a constructive way. I have a tendency to get angry when I have to confront someone but when that happens your point gets lost and then you things go sour.

I never got confrontational up until this past year (i'm 31) and my biggest hang up was always anxiety. Like the guy writing the letter, and bill himself, my problem was being nice and then becoming an asshole (and not a funny one) because I thought that would shift people's perception of me. What really changed things, honestly, was getting some therapy and getting fucking medicated to where I now get to experience what all you normal people feel like instead of triple guessing every decision I make to the point I talk myself out of it. Anyway, some rich asshole was talking down to some lady when he was clearly in the wrong (stopped his suv on a bike path to look at his phone) and yelled at him to fucking move, from like 6 feet away from his open window. watching the fear of god pass across this dude's smug shithead face before he took off was like a religious moment for me. I haven't gone out of my way to scare people since then or anything, but since then I've had a much better sense of self and it was a real turning point in that i don't think about others as much in regards of validating my self image any more.

Bill Burr may be my favorite podcasting comedian. He just recognizes that subtle funny stuff and he doesn't try to be outrageous or wild. He's just super smart and funny and isn't full of himself.

A 23 year old MALE musician who works at BB&B can't figure out why people don't take him seriously? That entire fucking sentence is exactly why people don't take you seriously.

“You’re gonna have to take someone down to the matt so they respect ya” lmao i got a kick out of that but when he says “and also they say they cant picture me mad” well get fucking mad about something in front of them! Anybody i’ve worked with sees me pissed off until 12 everyday
Damn, this resonates super hard. What I did to try to get people to take me seriously is tell less jokes and have a more serious demeanor and respond quicker to assholes.
