52 Types of Difficult People / Deal with Difficult People

The Interjector: one of the 52 types of difficult people.

Welcome to the 32nd blog in the series “52 blogs in 52 weeks with each blog being about one of my 52 types of people who are poorly behaved and at times downright difficult”.  This blog is about Type 14: The Interjector. The blog has a short description of The Interjector then a video where I tell you about Bill – a real-life Interjector.

#14: The Interjector.

The Interjector inappropriately and rudely interrupts you when you’re speaking or when you otherwise ‘have the floor’. For example, The Interjector might interject when you’re having a normal run-of-the-mill conversation (with them or with someone else), having a chat at a dinner party or giving a report at staff meeting.

The Interjector can interrupt you in lots of different ways. For example, they can interrupt you by making a statement, asking a question, making a noise, by making facial expressions and even by body movements. Their behaviour is unfair and unreasonable. And it’s the case even when The Interjector doesn’t mean any harm.

Usually The Interjector interrupts you directly. For example, they say something directly to you or say something which is clearly meant for your ears. However, they sometimes interrupt you indirectly. They can do this, for example, by saying something under their breath or by saying something to someone else. But either way, their behaviour is unacceptable.

Anyway, in the video I give a real-life example of an acquaintance of mine called Bill. I’m sure he means no harm. However, he’s one of the most annoying people I know.

The video

The soundtrack/audio of the video.

For those who’d like to just have the soundtrack of the video, here it is. Of course you’ll miss out on seeing my lovely face but hey, it’s up to you.

Until next time, all the very best.
