Roy Murray asked 5 months ago
I am naturally an introvert and I like to keep my personal life separate from work. However, there is one colleague who is always asking me personal questions and trying to pry into my private life. It\'s starting to make me feel uncomfortable. What should I do?

If you are feeling uncomfortable with a colleague's nosy behavior, the best thing to do is to directly address the issue. Explain to them that you appreciate their interest, but would prefer to keep your personal life separate from work. If they continue to pry, you can be more assertive and tell them firmly that you do not appreciate their nosy behavior. If the situation persists, you may need to speak with a supervisor or HR representative.
