I'm currently getting mentored by senior colleague. He's not too senior, just one year senior to me. Nobody lasts much in companies in Nepal so that's normal. Everyone moves abroad if they can.
Today I found out that he was getting somewhat annoyed by my stubbornness/firmness. I didn't get a good word for it I admit. My way of supporting my claim too much, maybe my inflexibility.
How do I create a line between being independent, creative, firm? The problem is if I agree too much with my senior colleague, I won't learn anything as that's not how you learn. You learn by trial and error and thinking a lot and being creative and independent. But if I continue to be like I am now, chances are good they won't be interested in mentoring me again.
How do I create that line?
