Hi, I’m Brenda F. Dixon, a licensed clinical
social worker here in Nashville, Tennessee and we’re here with Expert Village today.
The next difficult person in the, I keep wanting to say marketplace, it is kind of a marketplace,
but in the workplace it is the exterminator. The exterminator has a way about them that
they just want to make other people look not so good and themselves look really good. They
do things to elevate themselves, sometimes they’re a little bit boseful, they will just
manipulate the system. For example; they may go to the boss and tell the one thing negative
that somebody else has done, and they don’t mention anything about themselves, just making
themselves look good. The exterminator is very difficult to be around because they will
watch you and perhaps even put things in a perspective that makes you look bad. So this
could be very much anger producing being around a person that really is intimidating. They’re
difficult to be around because they will say things that are harsh and sometimes it’s not
the truth or sometimes it’s the truth but it has a little bit of skewed edge to it.
So the exterminator will produce anger around the people in the workplace also.
