You may be mortified by being a misfit at workplace, you have nothing in common and people don’t get you. Of course, everyone loves to be different than others, but there is a huge difference between being different and being the odd one out.

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”  

-Mark Twain

If you are not sure if you are a misfit at workplace or are simply different, here are some hints:

  • Misfits only get along with other misfits.
  • They try really hard to fit, so as to have a social group or purpose, but they hate it.
  • They rebel against traditions and social norms.
  • They are always lost in their own world.
  • They are more likely to be highly intelligent and sensitive.
  • Misfits are fearless, as they have nothing to lose socially.
  • They are aware of social suffering – a state of being alone even when you are surrounded by people.

So you are a misfit! You don’t have to be ashamed of it, in fact, it may prove to be beneficial if you are a misfit at workplace. Let’s have a look:

  • A lot of successful entrepreneurs are misfits, so instead of trying to fit in, you can go on your own and be one of those startup leaders, who end up earning a lot more than the 6-digit salary.
  • You have the courage to stand out alone and the self-confidence that a leader requires to climb the corporate ladder.
  • You are more likely to achieve your full potential because you are more self-aware and are not influenced by others.
  • You are opinionated and will stick to your opinion even when others in the room are against you.
  • You appreciate things and you value opportunities.
  • You are a quick learner and you embrace the change.
