I have a co-worker in my department/section at work who is constanly asking me if people are making remarks about him, always asking me what I think of his work, etc. When I say I haven't heard anything he'll get a rejected look in his eyes and remark with something such as "Not even anything good? I hear people say nice things about you." If it only happened every once in awhile I'd ignore it, but I swear it happens every day I see him. Alot of people don't really like him, I think he's a decent worker, however I don't think it's my place to tell him all of this because all I would be doing is spreading gossip.
If a coworker or classmate or someone else asks you constantly if people are talking about them you would...
Ignore them and not say anything one way or the other
Only tell them the good things you have heard
Only tell them the bad things you have heard
Tell them everything you have heard
Ask they stop questioning you
Demand they stop questioning you
Go to a supervisor and explain the sitution
How important is that people like you and the work you do? yes I know it depends on the job and the people, but try to pick one
