  • I speak my mind. But I am pretty sure i'm about to get fired..
  • I have 7 contempt charges in one trial that says..I have a bad habit of not being capable of stuffing it..LOL :)
  • It depends on how important I think it is. Usually I'll just stuff it, but if I know I can do something better than how they tell me to do it, I'll speak my mind.
  • I just stuff it. It doesn't do me any good to argue because i will not win.
  • That depends on the circumstances. If it is a matter of ethics where I believe the person to be in err then I will say something. But, if it's just a matter of differing opinions on a matter that has no real significance; then, I will just keep it to myself.
  • You can speak your mind to your boss or anyone else with "the power", diplomacy is the key. Everything is in the voice inflection, body language, etc.
  • If it's a policeman I will surely stuff it but if it's my boss I fell obligated to say what needs said.
  • I always say what I'm thinking. Always.
  • That all depends on who it is. For the most part I let them have it, but not all the time.
  • I fear confrontation so I stuff it , though I'm learning
  • If it's a harmless disagreement, I'll either just ignore it / go along with it, if it's something a bit more controversial I'll usually go with it while still asking for an explanation or something, but if it is something I completely disagree with, I'll stop and speak my mind, or when neccesary, take action against it
  • I speak my mind. Respectfully. I'd rather appear to have a spine and show that I can stand up for myself than to just hush up and be walked all over.
  • Unfortunately, if they ask, I will tell them. I have lost two jobs this way. I didn't say anything that all the workers weren't saying to each other, but I was the only one with guts enough to say it. And I was the one who was "Laid off". I can keep quiet. But when asked what I think straight out I expect that they want an answer. They don't. I am still having trouble learning how to deal with this.
  • If you know you are right, stand your ground. You may be fired, you may be arrested, but at least you have proven your point, but only to yourself. Did i say this?
  • Speak my mind. That being said it's best to do it with some respect and caution. i.e. a speech on your feelings about the legality of marijuana while getting a ticket(or in the back of a cop car) isn't the smartest and could be used against you. The officer would most likely add a comment in the report about your mumbling confession of marijuana use.
  • I would never "stuff it" for any reason, so no. I wouldn'd speak my mind either. I would probably just plot the authority's demise, like I do with most situations.
  • You can always be honest without being offensive. With people in authority, I keep a civil tongue in my head, though that may not stop me from speaking truth if it is necessary.
  • I speak my mind alot of the time. "Stuffing it" would only result in my, "I should've said..."
  • Speak my mind but in a way thats firm and to the point but not in an aggressive or condiscending manner, lol unless they deserve it or have spoken to myself in that way :D
  • I have only 7 people who work for me. I always encourage each of them to come to me with any problem or difference of opinion they may have. I do expect the same respect I would show them. This means, lets not have a show in front of anyone. I think everyone is intitled to speak their mind, using good judgement as to when, is key.
  • Usually I stuff it, which I hate doing. I have this deep seated irrational fear that if I REALLY spoke my mind, they'd kill me. :/
  • I always speak my mind, no matter what or who it is.
  • Tactful, well chosen words are used when I speak my mind. Using the proper vocal tone helps also. Then, having practiced that in front of the 'loo' mirror, I scurry off to work.
  • I speak my mind, regardless to whom. But man, it can get heated up, when you have two persons of authority, who disagree.
  • I've learned my lesson there. I stuff it. Gets me further that way.
  • stuff it
  • Depends on the situation.
  • I always always speak my mind! I think that's why not very many people like me! LOL
  • Never ever speak your mind when you're dealing with the authorities. If they speak their mind you're in trouble.
  • I speak my mind. I still show respect. But I make sure my point gets across! If they don't show me the same respect back...things MAY get ugly...
  • I speak my mind.
  • I do it their way, unless there is clearly a better way. Than I would humbly suggest to my leader what I came up with and let him decide if it should be used.
  • My boss is underqualified for her position of senior director or marketing, yes she has a 'master's in science' which she admitted she had a hard time completing due to lack of study skills; however she has been named head of the marketing department but all her credentials are just a 5 day marketing workshop training out of town. I do not hold a degree yet (still in college) however we're both are the same age 40+. and my major is business and marketing, which gives me more insight of what the nature of the business and the department really are. I hate her snotty attitude over me and I wish I could find the way our Exec. Dir. could separate my department (Web and Publishing) from hers. Any suggestions to start this "separation" in a professional way and without the risk of losing my job?
  • I am having that problem now. My boss doesn't communicate with me, the VP thinks I am not a good fit (only been there 2 months) and she has sent me to personnel to apply for othe positions. I have some feed back for her now because I disagree with things she's said to me about myself. I have not been treated fairly and need to voice my opinions to her. How do I do it wihtout getting fired? I am interviewing for other positions where I work as she has suggested.
