Why is every matrix (complex) similar to its transpose?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am looking at a typical jordan block and I see that the transpose of the nilpotent part is again nilpotent and actually similar to the nilpotent part. I can see that the scalar part of the jordan block does not change under transposing, but I still cannot show the result.

Thank you
