Handling difficult people?

How do you handle difficult people who behave like spoil brats or overly sensitive people who get offended with almost everything you say to them. What about those who get angry easily? If only we can avoid dealing with these difficult people all together then life will be so much easier but unfortunately you still have to deal with them especially in workplaces.

Handling difficult people is not an easy task at all. You should remain calm and have a lot of patience when dealing with them. You have to take everything step by step and should try your best to convince them that your point is valid in the end. You must never raise your voice with them because they will become aggressive towards you. Listen to them by giving them your full attention, in case of further debates in future. Avoid unnecessary talks or discussion with them.

I am more to agree with this, it is time-consuming to deal with those people. For me, I just ignore them. I'll focus more on doing my job efficiently and effectively.

I think I am one of the people whom your refer as overly sensitive. I get offended easily (but not everything being said to me). I get hurt easily. When someone offends me, I just walk away or steer clear of them. I don't like people who are spoiled rats too. I just ignore them and stay away from people I don't like as much as possible. I think I'm also guilty of getting angry easily. But that's was just before. I think I've changed. My boyfriend helped me to change my attitude and now I don't get angry easily. That was just before I met him.

Hi trinity! I cannot avoid them. If I only have the power, I'll make them avoid me. But no, with my kind of job, I have to deal with different kind of people everyday. This is always a test of patience for me. Have a nice day!

Oh well, we have office mates who are like that. They easily get angry or have an angry look every time. SO when i speak with them about a concern and they would start acting like that, i would say "are you angry with me?". And he /she would lighten up and say No. Then, we would laugh out loud! I think some people speaks that way, though they are not aware that they seem to be angry at all times.

If it is only a co employee you could easily create excuses to avoid dealing with these types but the real problem is if one of these characters happens to be your boss. And I had one then, actually my last boss who easily get's mad at the snap of a finger. As I cannot avoid facing him almost everyday, I try very much to do the best for my job and whenever he is not in a good mood, i don't argue with him as i would never win over him. At least most of the time he's out of the office meeting clients and overseeing other projects.
