@AIQ What question is that?
I answer way more questions then I ask. But when I ask question I get downvoted a lot :(

@Helena The one about LinkedIn
 
I don't think it was a bad question.
I got multiple interviews and one job offer because of Linkedin, so I do think not being there hurts
 
AIQ
I have anxiety when it comes to social media
I am very competitive by nature ...
I stopped using FB 5 years ago because it was too much for ... I couldn't handle the peer pressure ...
 
What does being competitive have to do with it?
I don't have a reason to use facebook, on Linked in I just log in about once a week to turn down offers to apply for a job
I don't post anything, I am just have my CV visible and recruiters come
 
AIQ
I get dragged into a certain way of thinking when I am in social media which is really not healthy for me ... I start comparing myself to everyone ...
I am worried that certain people (my peers, ex-classmates, etc.) would see my resume and laugh at me ...
 
I think I know the kind of thinking you are referring to, but it is unhealthy either way

I used to be great in a lot of things when I was younger, and then I started sucking at everyhting ...
It's like I hate seeing certain people get to a better place than me simply because their parents had resources .. as in a fuck ton of money ...
 
I realised that the better I do in my job, the more accomplished are my peers as well. So at some point I will automatically be surrounded by people doing better than me
 
AIQ
you are a greater person than I
It's like it hurts me sometimes ... and I am ashamed of where I am ... I should have been years ahead of myself at this point ...
You ever see a movie or a tv-show where there is this excellent basketball/soccer prospect ... just dominating the game? And then suddenly one day they get a severe injury and everything goes downhill ...
 
not many people get to be that excellent prospect in the first place
 
AIQ
I am just afraid of something that logically doesn't matter ... I just need to face this head on ...
asking the question was step-1 ...
 
6:58 PM
I dealt with most of my social anxiety a while ago. It can be done :)

Q: How to politely insist on being called Mr [Lastname] in a professional setting?

Alex FIt is very important to me that I am addressed by my family name in a professional setting, e.g. Mr Doe. Often, new employees will default to a casual tone and automatically call me by my first name, e.g. John. I would like to nip this behaviour in the bud as soon as possible, but I also do not w...

Hah, I was so damn puzzled by this weird and negative reception the OP here got, until I saw @JoeStrazzere's flag that the OP edited out the fact he was asking a hypothetical question for a fictional story they're writing...
Thanks for that flag Joe, I'd have completely missed it otherwise... 😅
