During our lives and careers in the world of work, we will meet someone who is shy, friendly, annoying, gossip, quick-tempered, and so on. If we meet people who are polite and good at communicating, that’s good. However, the conditions will be different if we have to face and interact with people who are annoying.
Gosh, just imagining it feels lazy. Moreover, you have to communicate with them every day, do you imagine colleagues? Maybe your fellow readers have one or more of your colleagues in the office who are annoying as we will discuss in this article. So, make sure your fellow readers read this article to the end! Let’s just look at the explanation below.
1. A person who brags.
The first annoying type, that we might encounter or have encountered is a braggart. Someone who is bragging tends to talk a lot, but not a single thing discussed will be done. In essence, he just boasted about doing this and that, but the results were not there.
For example, “I’ll help you make a presentation slide for tomorrow’s work meeting”. In fact, he did not help at all, did not even provide any further news that he would help his coworkers.
Meeting, dealing, talking or communicating with this type of person will be a very annoying moment. In fact, we are like wasting our time listening to what they are talking about.
Then, what communication science can we apply in dealing with people like this? Listening to what they say is good, but try to emphasize that we will only trust his words through actions, not just words. If this affirmation has been done before, then respond to their words with a smile.
That way, they will realize that the other person is lazy to listen to all the nonsense.
2. A Rumor Spreader or Gossip.
We strongly believe that Career Advice colleagues must have met or had one (or more) friends with characteristics like this. Yep! The spread of rumors or gossip is spread everywhere. Even if there is no news they can talk about, they will create it themselves by manipulating the existing story.
There is no denying that meeting and working with people like this will only make our lives uneasy, restless and worried. We will think, “lest after this I will be the victim of gossip”.
Then, what communication science can we apply in dealing with people like this? one of the most effective ways in communication when dealing with people like this is to change the subject immediately when they come to us. Don’t let them listen to what we talk about or what we tell others.
Would it be better if we avoid their circulation by saying “excuse me”, so that there is no gap for them to listen to what we discuss. Remember, don’t share any stories or information with people like this.
3. A person who is arrogant.
In addition to the two annoying characteristics above, this third type is also a type of annoying person . Arrogant individuals will only care about themselves. People like this will tell others about what they have done, what they have, what they are working on, and so on.
They will not allow others to explain what others do. All is really about them. For example, “I bought a Ferrari yesterday, I plan to buy another luxury car next month, I will blah blah blah …”.
If listening to them constantly makes our ears hurt, then be patient and ask the question “Wow, I’m amazed by your achievements. What would make you more interested in buying a Ferrari than any other car? ” Or, ask neutral questions. Neutral questions might get us new information and knowledge from them, even though the content of their conversation is very frustrating.
4. A Man with a Heavy Heart.
This fourth type is owned by people who cannot filter their words well. They tend to say whatever is on their minds, regardless of whether their words will hurt others or not. Actually they don’t have any intention to hurt the people around them, but they just can’t express themselves without being considered negative or rude by others.
For example, someone said to a fellow reader, “How come you look so thin now? Eat a lot, so your body becomes fuller. Even though the intention may be good, not everyone feels okay when there are others who criticize their physical appearance.
Then, what communication science can we apply in dealing with people like this? Maybe we will be tempted to defend ourselves defensively in front of that person. However, be patient. The best way we can do is divert their scathing comments with praise.
For example, “Ah really? Thank you for being noticed like this. I really am trying to lose weight so I can slim like you “. There will be no people who don’t like to be praised. Replying to criticism with praise will make us a more positive person and not be bothered by scathing criticisms from others.
5. A “Celamitan”.
Celamitan here has the meaning that the person always wants things that are free but of good quality from others. People like this tend to approach other people with the aim of getting the positive things that person has.
For example, “Eh, aren’t you a dermatologist? I want to consult about my spotty face. What do you think is the solution for facial acne? Do you have free medicine for me? ”
Clearly not that people of this type only want “something” from other people. Then, what communication science can we apply in dealing with people like this? Try not to be lulled by their persuasion in giving free things from us, if the case example above, we can answer like this, “I do not know the core problem of your face, your face must be examined first in my clinic. Try contacting my assistant first to schedule an appointment. ” That way, they will realize that not everything in this world can be obtained for free (free).
