QUESTION: How do you handle social exclusion in the workplace?

  1. Never happened to me... I guess I'd say just try to be chill and act like it doesn't bother you. Maybe once people get used to you they'll realize there's something to you.

  2. Depends on how important it is for you to fit in. If it doesn't really matter, then just ignore it. Else:

    Be more attractive and cool.Shallow, but dress the way they dress, eat what they eat and don't be cheap with money. Offer to buy your co-workers coffees and drinks. Small things count. Find out their interests, and research those interests

  3. Try to chat with people on lunch, offer to buy co-workers coffees/snacks if you're going to timmies or something, try being the one to initiate hang outs outside of work.

    I'm really shy and I've been in the same situation a few times. I'd usually just give up though because I knew I was only going to be there for 4 months. I'd just hang out with existing friends who were in the area. (or an SO who lived in the area)

    1. It's treating a person like they're not there. You just kind of look through them. A bunch of people do this to a few or one person.

  7. Freezing out a person to cast them from a group. Reasons run from neglect to contempt.
