Mensagem: 

    If somebody gives you an advice that you didn´t ask (or even if you asked) and somewhat makes you uncomfortable or makes you give excuses or politely nod  (however thinking the other way). This is a sign that you are being patronized.
    If someone has a high opinion of his own ideas, in a way that he try to force it upon you (what is a childish thing to do) he is trying to patronize you.
    Looks like a bullying, only that a person is trying to make you act in a way that he thinks right. It´s not about coercitive force, but coercitive ideas/behavior towards others (in an almost threatening way).
