    Arrogant.
    Aggressive.
    Bossy.
    Weird.
    Argumentative.
    Not always thinking before speaking.
    Saying things that don't make sense and/or are socially unacceptable.


    I'm not even making this up; these are things I have actually heard from coworkers, lol. The last four I completely agree with, I won't deny those, but the first three baffle me! I guess I can get pretty absorbed in work sometimes, especially when we have a floor move to do, and more often than not I think I can do the job better than most other people in my area so I can get pretty assertive telling people how things should be done. I'm working on it, but damnit, I know how things should be done and I hate when other people do it completely wrong and everything has to be redone - what a waste of time. I think of all of those that I listed though, weird, argumentative, and saying socially unacceptable things take the top three spots.

    I have heard nice, sweet, and thoughtful a few times - but those were mostly from the older women I work with. Old people always seem to love me, and I am usually quite fond of them myself.

    for me:

    by the book
    reliable and trustworthy
    helpful and kind, a good teacher/coach
    detail oriented
    conscientious/perfectionist
    uptight yet reasonable and VERY quick to admit my errors and learn from them
    surprisingly playful/witty once they're in my comfort zone
    idk

    They all seem to like me? I don't *really* know what they think of me though.

    Oh, my manager has told me quite a few times that she loves how creative I am when it comes to rearranging everything. Apparently she loves the floor schemes I plan out. Also, the other day she rewarded me with an extra hour of pay because I organized all of her papers by department, and in alphabetical and numerical order for easy access. She said nobody else had ever done something like that before to make her job easier, and that I was awesome for doing it. Hehe. Can't say it wasn't fun for me, because it kind of was.

    I love my job when I can show my creative side and organizational strategies, and it's even better when I am given some praise or recognition for it; but damnit, I hate the actual sales part of my job and having to interact with most of those dimwits.

    i'm not sure because i keep to myself. when i do make a friend at work i usually end up hearing about how the other people wonder why i don't socialize with them. task-wise i hear fast and reliable a lot.

    Hmm well I haven't had outside work for a while, but I do volunteer work:

    Friendly
    brings people together
    chatty
    efficient
    but not detail oriented at all
    trouble with follow-through
    very polite on the phone
    matches work style to fit person I'm working with

    Weird is definitely the first word that comes to mind, lol. They are all very...normal seeming people; I have piercings and long hair and I talk about Dexter and psychology and anarchy and killing people and how the world is fucked, etc.
    They would probably call me aggressive, I'm definitely the most "pushy" salesperson in the store aside from the SLE-Ti assistant manager; she is more persistent in offering things over and over again and positioning them cleverly, whereas I am more likely to use a kind of interpsychic pressure: using body language, the tone of my voice, eye contact, changing my own energy, etc.
    Intellectual, I tend to initiate discussions about politics and things of the sort
    Loud, I have a tendency to forget that there are customers in the store and blurt out obscenities or controversial statements
    Goofy, I make voices and belch loudly when the manager is not on the floor.
    Arrogant, definitely lol...I think most people think this about me
    Aloof, I'm not always talkative and tend to stay out of work drama/internal politics as much as possible.
    Oh and full of shit, or something of the like; I have the highest capacity for coming across "different" than I really am in terms of self-presentation, and tend to use a very professional tone on the phone and with customers, whereas I am typically very casual with everyone other than the managers.


    I dunno, I have a good image in my head, kind of hard to describe though; a list of words doesn't really suffice

    Most of them don't know me very well, so that's probably it.

    I forgot about this but yeah, definitely something they've said. Even though I'm working two jobs right now and one of them is full of wierd people so I don't really feel like that, but *usually* that's something which I commonly hear.

    Loud, I have a tendency to forget that there are customers in the store and blurt out obscenities or controversial statements
    Lol. I do this sometimes too, even tho I don't blurt out obscenities, I just talk very loudly. Loud is my natural tone of voice, sadly.

    Yeah, I know, it depends on the situation. During the last month for example, I worked in a library...so my natural loudness was a clear problem, ahah. However, it was quite an asset when I was working in a factory.

    Depends. I get a lot of different things depending on who I'm with.

    Funny
    Bright
    Aggressive (or 100% laid-back)
    Talkative (but quiet around some)
    Flaky
    Hot-Cold
    Creative
    Weird
    Not a rule, just a trend.

    IEI. Probably Fe subtype. Pretty sure I'm E4, sexual instinctual type, fairly confident that I'm a 3 wing now, so: IEI-Fe E4w3 sx/so. Considering 3w4 now, but pretty sure that 4 fits the best.

    Yes 'a ma'am that's pretty music...

    I am grateful for the mystery of the soul, because without it, there could be no contemplation, except of the mysteries of divinity, which are far more dangerous to get wrong.

    Oh this is great.

    When I first started working at my current place of employment the man
    I work with most often thought I was a rude little prissy bitch. Direct quote.
    Several months of working ten hour shifts together one on one and he now
    thinks I'm the bees knees. My coworker's like me because I do my job and
    then once I'm done with my job, I will also do theirs. Idle hands are the
    devil's playground, you know. Realistically I just don't want to be at work
    standing/sitting there doing nothing. Sometimes when I'm feeling resentful
    of my coworker's for passing their workload onto me I will bring in a book or
    I will do something very asinine and unnecessary like scrub the walls. I may
    even polish the windows if I'm really desperate for something to do with myself.


    They love my sense of humour and they like that I'm not slow and when
    asked to do things I do them properly and well and right.

    When they found out I was in an exclusive relationship with a man they were all
    a little taken aback because I never once mentioned him for months. I'm really
    closed-off and guarded about my personal life but now that I know them better, or
    at least the man I work with most often, I talk about him a bit but not very
    much. The man I work with usually asks me how he is doing that day and I answer
    his question. That's the extent of our discussion into my personal life usually.

    eh, i've only had one actual job thus far. they said i was shy, small, white, hard-working, reliable, polite.

    i was the one of the only white people there, and 10-30 years younger than everyone else, so i wasn't really too welcome there. i didn't really care to force my way into any of their social circles in time i was there.

    one lady there said i was condescending, but she was always screwing up everyone's food, and it was a hospital, so i told her to be more careful and she flipped.

    Apparently a lot of people make note of my sense of humor. When people only know me as part of a group they tend to say I don't stick out and keep to myself, but in smaller groups where everybody knows each other as individuals people say I'm very personable.
