My apologies if this question looks weird but I really need help.
My issue is I feel it hard to mix up with others in office; and not only in office in general I will say. I like to be involved with them, but I only talk about things strictly relevant to tasks we are performing. I'm guessing my personality also gives others a message of seriousness and they don't mix-up or joke with me. We only discuss task related things, say 'hi' in the morning, 'bye' on leaving, and smile sometimes.
Please help me. Is this a common experience for others?
Can you please suggest tactics to help me overcome this lack of socialisation?
I highly appreciate your cooperation.
