    How do you deal with a co-worker who doesn't like you?

    This is a major issue. Your work place should be a place of productivity and friendship. But, is not always like that. There are a lot of people jealous of you, who envy your work, and there are many people willing to give you such a hard time.

    Since I am a certified provider of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, I tend to consider what personality type they are likely to be closest to. Then I think through how their personality differs from mine, and what I can do to 'get on their good side' of things they tend to be interested in and their perspective on situations. However, I realize this is not possible for many people. There are, though, easy reading books available that can help with understanding the differences between people and how that can help some in connecting with those who are so different from us.

    I would try my best to ignore them. They're not liking you is not the end of your world. You're there for a reason, and it's not to impress them. Some people try to stomp on others just to make themselves feel better....if you try to look at it that way, it may help. Let it roll off your back...if you can.

    It is a fact of life. Everybody will not like you no matter what you do. You simply detach from their opinions and behavior and find your own friends. And be totally unconcerned with what they think of you. If the company allows independence, take advantage of it.

    EVERYone is not going to like ALL co-workers.  It's just a simple fact of human nature and people who must interact in group settings.  If someone "doesn't like me," I most likely would not be too terribly concerned with it, in terms of a personal matter.  If it was necessary to work closely with this individual for any length of time, I would maintain a purely business-like attitude, be pleasant and respectful and leave it at that.  You don't like me? don't have to and my life will not be effected or change in the slightest, so.....have a nice day and move on, please.

    Life goes on, but it does make for a stressful work environment. I would encourage you to not let that person change you (I say, “you” but I don't know if it's you).

    Continue to be your vibrant self, stand tall and don't cower in their presence. I would also suggest limiting your interaction with the person.

    But if you have to work with them, kill 'em with kindness.

    If the situation continues or remains unchanged, bring it to the attention of your supervisor, HR, or some neutral person who can help you and the other person hash things out.

    And if that doesn't work, it might be time for you to find another job.

    Workplace is a platform which only invites and welcomes people with brain, intellectuality and a zeal to achieve their goals. Co-workers are important in a person's life at the workplace, However, they should only be important when it is only related to work. We should not entertain any personal involvement of them which can disturb our personal life which means a healthy lifestyle and professional interest can only be maintained when we only give importance to people as per the required level. There are no personal and should not be any unhealthy thoughts between two co-workers.
