IMG_0444.JPGEveryone has their own opinion of what it means to be "social".

 

Wikipedia defines social as:

a characteristic of living organisms (humans in particular, though biologists also apply the term to populations of other animals). It always refers to the interaction of organisms with other organisms and to their collective co-existence, irrespective of whether they are aware of it or not, and irrespective of whether the interaction is voluntary or involuntary.

 

But if you asked actual organisms humans people around the office, these are some opinions you might hear:

  • Jimmy (Mail Room)
    Playing office pranks on people.  You know to keep the office mood lively and entertaining.  Nothing too big though. *snicker
  • Mary (Project Manager)
    I regularly allocate 20% of the remaining  float time to shoot the breeze with my team and hear what's going on in their lives.  That's before resource leveling though.
  • Tobias (Engineer)
    Social to me is smiling, nodding my head, and not saying what is really on my mind while I'm at the mandatory office white elephant exchange.
