DO PEOPLE LIKE YOU AND THINK YOU'RE INTERESTING?

Last week I went out with friends in Singapore who all work together. There was a new guy who was a new co-worker at their company. He was from Canada, so I figured it would be fun to chat with a fellow North American here in Asia.

It wasn’t.

He kept talking about himself. Leaning in way too close to me. Spitting on me. Talking too loud. Invading my personal space, not just physically but audibly. Trying to elicit some kind of impressed reaction from me that would validate him.

Are you unknowingly doing things that are making people dislike you?
