Is It Them, or Is It Me?

The Problem Co-Worker Quiz – Is It Them, or Is It Me?

This one’s really simple to score—just circle every question to which you answer “False.” Then circle it again … and then again … and then one more time. And then take a moment to think…

  1. I know for a fact that my co-worker behaves in a way I know I never have or ever would.
  2. I know enough about my co-worker’s home and personal life to be sure that nothing can explain the reason for their behavior.
  3. I’m sure my co-worker is the exact same aggravating person outside of the office as inside.
  4. I can’t think of anything to talk about with my co-worker that we would have fun discussing.
  5. The time I spend being irritated and complaining about my co-worker is worth it.
  6. Just letting go of how I feel about my co-worker is not an option.
  7. Other people feel more hostile toward my co-worker than I do—I’m not the #1 complainer.
  8. I am confident that no one I work with has any complaints about me personally.
