    How to deal with a colleague who is highly unpredictable in his reactions?

    I am working in a government organisation. One of my colleagues is highly unpredictable in his reactions and you never know when he will get angry with you. I have got into trouble many times because of this and want to do something regarding this.How to get out of such a situation?

    Hi,
    Different people have different nature, but as you mention that "you have got into trouble many times because of this". So you just need to follow one option:
    1. Meet that colleague outside the office and tell him directly that your nature is quite in predictable and sometime this cause me in trouble.
    And i am pretty sure that he will understand your problem and take care you in future as an good colleague.
    Thanks

    Hello,

    Yes, There are some people which are totally Unpredictable...and to deal with these people is very difficult. ....But the best way to deal with these people to keep calm and give a smile...whenever they speaks just hear them calmly and don't say anything. ..

    slowly slowly they will understand that nobody likes their behavior...He automatically became calm...and will think before speak..

    Hi,

    It is a fact that there are people with varied personality around us and it's actually a skill to handle all these people in an adept manner. But believe me, it's not a herculean task rather just the usage of right words and the right attitude can help you to handle everyone around you very efficiently.

    Firstly, maintain professionalism at work place and avoid getting personal with anyone which means avoid talking any personal aspect of one's life.

    Secondly, your business at work place is to do your job and maintain your focus on that. Especially with people with unpredictable nature, just talk work and try talking the least.

    Thirdly, Do not pay much heed to such trivial matters as it's not your business to keep everyone happy at work place. If any individual has unnecessary problem with you, it's his/her problem. You need not worry about it but shrug it off and keep only professional ties with him/her.

    Thanks.

    Hello,
    1.
    Recognize what you can and cannot change in a workplace context.
    2.
    Pinpoint what you mean by moodiness.
    3.Stop envying the hierarchy.
    4.Avoid being a wimp or a clone.
    5.Listen carefully.
    6.Document everything.
    7.Interact with your moody boss assertively.
    8.Avoid turning your boss' insecurity into your insecurity .
    thanks..................
