Keith asked:

Rather than veering off into guess-the-gender-of-the-name land, I'm
curious. Have those of you who proclaim yourself bitchy (or all business, or
take no prisoners, or any other not-worried-about-being-liked approach)
found it to be the most effective way to get results? Have you also tried
the nice/happy/chatty approach? This question applies to both genders.

And I reply:

Personally, speaking only for myself, I use the nice, friendly, chatty
routine - since that's what/the way I am. Most of the time it works.

At the same time, being a "hired gun," I know I'm not here to be liked, I'm
here to do a job. Hopefully, people will like me (I suffer from the delusion
that I'm a likeable person). At the least, though, most of the time I do get
respect and the help I need to complete the given task.
