In what ways can a Junior show Ego?

  • If I asked a lateral thinking question (how many ping pong balls can fit on a school bus), complaining that it's a waste of time or pointless question.
  • refusal to listen to help (though I acknowledge this is easily misconstrued during interviews with not wanting to look ignorant) I think there was one or 2 other examples I had in mind when I posted but they aren't coming to me. I've interviewed a few people who thought their school, internship, or 1 other brief job made them way better than they were. They ended up being close minded, hard to work with in a team, and poor at communicating their ideas.
