Also, I agree in general with Raz that it helps to know I'm doing tasks the right way, that whatever I'm doing is working. In that sense, the feedback matters, not too much for emotional support, but to know that my effort is giving the best result.
Sometimes, I got the chance to work alone. That was fine. I liked it.
But I tell you what--I didn't make a lot of friends at work (was only there for a few months). The few I did talked to me even though I didn't say much back. I guess they didn't mind... Joking around and telling stories about stuff we've done was on-the-job chatter that settled us into familiarity. Though it's true that my job didn't require a lot of thinking, so for an office job I would probably need a lot more quiet time. I need some quiet to think, when I'm working on something.
No, it seems like Erinavery's routine would mostly work. We probably wouldn't become friends, but we would get work finished.Originally Posted by Antisocial one
