    I love my job, I really do and I can be outgoing with clients but please, back off a bit and let me be when I'm in the office.

    For the love of God, PLEAAAAASE let me be!

    Hate to burst your extrovert hating bubble but this person might be an introvert of the MBT variety who just feels exceptionally comfortable with you for whatever reason.

    Dude, chatterboxes and people who corner you to talk are not necessarily extroverts.

    I have an INTP friend who finds it VERY DIFFICULT to get off the phone. When I tell her I have to go because someone is waiting for me or I'm about to get on a plane or whatnot, she'll find more and more things to talk about. LOL She is aware of it though (after the fact?)

    I had an introvert boss once who would NOT stop talking to me. It was really strange because I got paid by the hour and he would interrupt my work to chit chat and I would still try to work but it was so distracting so I would just talk to him and then work. It was really annoying after a while because I actually did want to get stuff done. My friends said, "Sweet! You get paid to listen to him talk and you don't have to do work!"

    See, it was a tiny office - just him and a 70 year old secretary (I'm not kidding) so I think he was going stir crazy and appreciated having someone closer to his age to talk to.

    This, yeah. Anyone with half a brain socially astute marketers should likely be able to see when someone actually wants to talk and when they don't. If they open the floodgates and unload all of their extroversion onto their customers, they've probably driven away many, many potential sales..

    So...if I let you be, will you promise not to afterwards accuse me of ignoring you though? *innocent look*

    well in fact some INTROVERTS are that annoying too. Like, over analysing situations and coming to you like it's the end of the world. >_<.
    Or creating issues by not communicating. (and then comes the drama)
    Feels like having a dam blowing up in my neighbourhood.

    ps: I hate useless chit chat too. Depends with who. But repeat something I already know twice a day and i might just murder you.

    I hate to say this, but its true.
    These are types found in sales and marketing.
    Many wouldn't have gone into it if they didn't have that talking trait.

    Notice the touch of awe in the tone of the above post? Because it's out of character for most I's! Not that I'm implying ALL Es are like that.

    They're an ESFJ, an ENTP, two ENFJs, an xNFP, an ESTx and an ENFP. And you better believe it.

    The only two fellow introverts in the office are an ISFP graphic designer (who very conveniently goes deaf when he needs to work quietly) and the INFP office administrator. The former gets a pass because the rest chalk it down to eccentric artist syndrome and nobody minds but it likely wouldn't go down well if I just ignored them. Apparently, it's illegal for a sales exec to be an introvert.

    They're actually quite good at what they do so, apparently, they reserve their interpersonal skills for their customers and unleash the pent up need to chat when they return to the office.

    Would you accuse me of malice if I gave you a bottle of your favorite wine?

    I have an ISTJ pal that says that she can only take S & M folk in short doses. Wonder if she was warning me in some way...

    These folks can small talk and chitchat like it's going out of fashion.



    I just need to vent. Es, it ain't personal, eh?

    Random thought of the day:

    I wonder if sales and management is called S & M for exactly that reason!

    Ah, that makes sense.. kind of like venting for them.

    You'd think that being around people as a profession would be enough, but apparently it's not the right kind of extroversion for them..
