This is a Monday’s Musings – Random thoughts, feelings and musings by Yours Truly entry under my themed blog posts! For more info about the themed blog posts, do read the entry here.
I think most of my Monday’s Musings entries comes from real life experiences. When irked, amused, I think it makes good content for Monday’s boliaoness posts.
I’ve worked in plenty of jobs previously before. I’ve worked in big companies such as a major media house in Singapore, a gaming company and even currently, a huge creative advertising agency. I also worked in startups and smaller companies previously before.
With over 10 years of working experience, I’ve worked with very interesting individuals before or have heard of such cases from friends.
1. The Passive Aggressive
I personally think that the passive aggressive colleagues are actually really humchi. They want to show aggro behaviour but wants to do it in a subtle way so that you can’t pinpoint or defend yourself towards them.
Example of passive aggressive behaviour? Hiding a criticism under a compliment. Saying one thing and meaning another. This is usually accompanied with a fake smile.
2. The Keyboard Warrior
Similar to Passive Aggressive, the keyboard warrior is very good at showing their aggression over emails. Keyboard warriors love to send nasty emails. They like to send instructions but hardly follow through with them.
Again, another fake type of colleague. I have seen such individuals personally. Nasty words in an email, a smile in person after that.
3. Always Angry
Usually a superior at work. This individual would be nasty and fierce at all times. Nitpicking and micro managing over everything. I have seen such cases to colleagues previously before. When faced with such individuals, it wouldn’t be surprising to see resignations not too long after.
4. The Taichi Master
I actually wrote about this ten years ago. Taichi master are great delegators. All work is ‘delegated’ and the taichi masters claims credit for everything.
I especially faced this in one of my previous jobs. The MIA is always missing. Whenever there is a new task or if the MIA has to present something, MIA is always well, missing in action. Most of the times, MC. I have seen cases of well, unbelievable MC reasons.
6. The Social Butterfly
The social butterfly would know almost everybody in the company. This individual would be friends with almost everybody and would the gossip king. Best way to find out about anything? Ask the social butterfly.
Feel free to comment if you know of any others and I’ll add them in!
