But I know plenty of people who would rather say, it’s not me it’s you! You can’t change someone who doesn’t want to change. And in the same way you can’t change yourself just because someone doesn’t agree with your personality.
Everyone is different. Trust me, I meet grumps, quiet, old, young, happy, sad. All sorts of people walk into my job. You just have to know how each person works. What triggers them? How can you avoid a bad encounter with people of opposite personalities? Once you learn people it’s easy. But harder if you have to deal with that person EVERY day..
The Debbie downer, the hypochondriac, the pathological liar, the procrastinator or the OCD control freak that needs everything perfect no matter what. Even when it comes to someone else’s emotions or morals. People tend to think that as people, we should all think commonly. Everyone should know how to respond, the right way. Everyone should apologize the same way. And everyone should think, act and talk alike.
It would be nice if we could all take that constructive criticism. It would be nice if everyone was good at keeping promises. But, we are all human.
To better be at peace with different people, who come from all different walks of life.. we need to know how each person is made and understand the difference in personality.
