The sad truth is that everyone assumes that they can add positive input to design projects. For some reason, it's held more in the light of redecorating a room—"Yes, I understand your recommendation, but I would prefer a floral print rather than leather."
It drives me crazy sometimes, but navigating it politically is just as much a skill of the position as is an understanding of color palettes or design software. Just this week I had the president of a bank request specific font changes to a project just before it was sent to print. Fortunately, others in the organization were able to convince him that we were being paid to make those decisions for a reason.
In other words, learn to not take it so personally or you are going to develop ulcers.
