The fear of looking stupid

“The fear of looking stupid in the office means that I always want to be really well prepared with the ability to preempt anything that comes up before I go in and talk to anybody, it also means I’ll spend way more longer than necessary editing things like emails so I don’t sound stupid, and the biggest one, I’d rather look stupid by not saying anything at all than saying something that would sound stupid.” The result, I don’t talk to anyone in the office. I just email them instead.
