How Do You Tell if a Coworker Dislikes You?

If you think a coworker dislikes you, there may be some signs to look out for. They may avoid eye contact, never smile at you, and be snippy when they talk to you. They may also spread rumors about you or take credit for your work. If you’re feeling excluded from the team or left out of important conversations, that could also be a sign that your coworker doesn’t like you.

In other words, they may exhibit defensive body language, such as folding their arms or looking over at you when they talk. They may also avoid making eye contact or smiling when you approach them. Additionally, they may not include you in office banter or humor. If you notice any of these behaviors, it’s likely that your coworker doesn’t like you.

If you believe that a coworker is being disrespectful, it is best to have a private discussion with them about the matter. Calmly and honestly express your frustrations about the rudeness that you have observed. However, you should not be critical or accusatory. If the behavior persists after speaking with the coworker, you may need to involve a supervisor or human resources department.
