I'm wondering if I can ask for thoughts from you (especially other introvert NFs) on a specific problem?
At work, I share an office with 3 others. They're amazing, wonderful people. However, I find that I have a hard time concentrating when they're around. There are interruptions, fun moments between work, or questions that need an answer from me. These aren't unreasonable interruptions, but the effect on me is utter derailment of what I'm doing. At the end of the day, I find myself frustrated at my lack of completion. Then, to make up for it, I bring work home to do over nights and weekends (when I have the quiet to work). This isn't good either.
I think part of the problem is that the type of work they do comes in small, short bursts (administrative-type stuff), while I must work intensely (writing, editing, proofreading) for long periods of time.
It's very possible that I'll get my own office in the future. In the meantime, though, what to do? I don't want to hurt anyone (nobody's doing anything wrong -- I'm just so sensitive). At the same time, I'm having a hard time getting the focus I need to get the work done.
I'd be so grateful for any tips, commiseration, or advice that you have for me!
