I wonder if this is a symptom of insecurity, that they feel the need to act all formal and wooden to impress others or convince their peers of their professionalism and their rank. As I have seen who they are outside of work, it almost feels that their work version is a pretense, like a green actor who is going through some method acting exercise. However, I do not necessarily get the sense that they are pretending. It is almost as if they arrive at work and put on a costume that they believe is expected of them or they have become conditioned to wear for some reason.
For better or worse, I am the same regardless of the situation I find myself in. Maybe it is just that I don't know any better. But the truth is, it is difficult enough for me to be around other folks, that I do not think I have it within me to try to master more than one persona. Do you exhibit any level of split personality?
