What are some guidelines/ good philosophies in expressing your personality at work?
I am a gregarious guy and my line of work is software development. I laugh louder than the average guy at jokes. I speak honestly about how I feel about most issues technical or non-technical. At the same time, I try to soften the blow when I say something that could be considered as abrasive or pointing but needs to be said. I also show a back-bone and stand up to superiors from other teams who try to push their weight around.
If you have been around people like me in the workplace, have you enjoyed working with them? In what way would you like people like me to be different?
