It is a well-known fact that the people who work in IT sphere are very specific. Not everyone can communicate or work with them. Nevertheless, it is still possible to get on the right side of these people.
But at the same time, there are some types of people that you would better not meet. This article specifies ten the most awful types of people that you will definitely meet or have already met while working in IT sphere and gives the short characteristics of each of the type. You will learn how to recognize these people and how to deal with them.
So there are ten types of people you will not definitely want to meet, working in IT sphere.
This person will try to throw dust in your eyes by his/her profound knowledge of all technologies, but in reality he may be familiar with none of them. Such ‘consultant’ can give you a lot of troubles by simple underrating the total project time as well as the costs for the necessary hardware.
Thinks that the project was successful only due to his great mind. If the project was not successful then this happened because nobody listened to him. Quickly forgets that every meeting he was present at was a disaster when everything he touched went terribly wrong. Never asks for somebody’s advice and likes to shout at people and give everybody orders.
This guy is quite similar to the previous type. Thinks that the status of nerd automatically makes him smart. He works with computers, but his computer skills are very bad. He does not understand the mode of its operation that’s why it is difficult for him to comprehend what went wrong and consider this issue as his misstep.
The most awful things that can happen to you in the process of working with this guy occur when he is your boss. He doesn’t have any experience in administrative work and therefore is constantly irritated when his employees did not manage to read his mind and anticipate his actions. Hates the situation when his responsibilities are reduced, though in reality he does almost nothing.
He can be a real disaster for any woman, even for a most skillful and experienced one. Enjoys explaining things in patronizing tone and he does not care at all if the woman he is communicating with is more well-grounded in this subject that he is.
Usually intelligent and worth person whose critical thinking is missing when he is faced with some technical slang. He is easily manipulated by the ignorant marketing person.
Often makes the following false conclusion: if a person has good skills in IT sphere that automatically makes him a brilliant specialist in politics. Usually this person is dazzlingly smart and intelligent but undrilled as for thinking.
They are constantly moaning that everything is bad and broken. They think they are always right. And they will explain you why they are right very VERY DETAILED. This specific characteristic makes these people impossible to work or even to communicate with.
These guys are really obsessed with their work and continue to solve some technical issues even at home when their working day is over. Enjoy sharing experience with you and talk about the technologies when your working day is over and you have a strong wish to talk about something else.
This type can be meet in countries where the labor legislation is very restrictive.
In conclusion we would like to tell that you should not take this article too seriously. It is not necessary that you all these types in your work or experience the horrors described above. Just observe carefully those people you are going to work with and everything will be all right. Good luck!
P.S. In case you recognize yourself to your unspeakable horror as one of the suggested types, don’t lose heart. It is never too late to change for the better and to take the right path.
