At times Jobs displayed a strange mixture of prickliness and neediness.
乔布斯时常会有一种奇怪的表现,一会儿浑身是刺,一会儿又渴望交流。
He usually didn't care one iota what people thought of him; he could cut people off and never care to speak to them again.
对此,他常常完全不在乎别人会怎么想。他可以跟人绝交,再也不想跟他们讲话。
Yet sometimes he also felt a compulsion to explain himself.
但是有时他也有冲动解释自己
So that evening Amelio received, to his surprise, a phone call from Jobs.

"Gee, Gil, I just wanted you to know, I talked to Ed today about this thing and I really feel bad about it," he said.
“吉尔,我只是想让你知道,我今天跟埃德谈了这件事,我真的感觉很糟糕,”他说,
"I want you to know that I had absolutely nothing to do with this turn of events,
“我想让你知道我跟这些局势的变化完全没有关系,
it was a decision the board made, but they had asked me for advice and counsel."
那是董事会作出的决定,但是他们问了我的意见。”
