The Awkward Person at Workplace

I have this awkward colleague. She treats everyone well except our department. (3 persons) She will reply word for word. I cannot say that she is rude as she only replies if I call her. We rarely spark any conversations. My colleague from the same department felt these too. I personally just think that she is pretty strange since I have not done anything wrong at all since my arrival at the company.

Try to speak to her as much as you can , even if she replies in one word . You can see the change after few days. ..

Be the first to approach her or try to be as friendly as you can. Or I was thinking, she has a crush on you.?? Kidding.

She's older and married. She treats my colleague this way too. I guess she has something against my department.

@holdoors Hmmm. She's insecure with someone or something in your department. Just thinking.

Maybe she is not comfortable talking to some people. Not rude, just not comfortable. Not all people are talkative. Like me too.... No worries, I think it's common, or maybe I also have come across many types of people including this type

@holdoors yup. It's something that she doesn't like about you two. I have came across this type of people, so usually I don't mind them too. As long as in work terms, she is cooperative. I sometimes like that too, I can be talkative to some people, but at some people I don't like about them, I just be quiet and speak when needed. It's not rude or ego or something negative for me, it's just what we called as sensitive towards something and tend to feel extra uncomfortable when talk to other things. At least they being honest to themselves. Some people tend to be talkative to everyone but then talk behind your back and that's not cool I sometimes be called as cold by other person, some called me kind. So yeah as a conclusion, in my opinion it's normal Maybe you haven't come across this type yet before. Hope that helps!

Yes, it is fair indeed. As long as she does not affect my work, I am fine with the current settings.

you did your part for 2 months, but it seems she's not interested in getting to know anyone in your department. as long as she's answering when you ask, then let it be. or you can ask your boss about it.

We can live with it. Her personality is known to be 'weird' according to some others.

I also found Awkward Person at my workplace too and I simply avoid and sometimes keep silent to have mental peace and also didn't want to spoil my mood on them,
