Listening to music during work hours cancelled
In the afternoon lunch slump and slowdown in energy I like to just put something on while I fix stuff and work. I don't really get any calls at the time so I just want to keep my faltering attention straight to what I do, and sometimes listening to music helps. This associate though, doesn't like it. He says it's a sign of "unpreparedness" and that I should stop doing it. Obviously I'm an intern so I need to placate him. I see many people, analysts to VPs, do it all the time, though. What's the big deal? Anyone has a similar issue?
Sounds rather special.
At my bank you won't see a single person, junior or partner, who doesn't listen to music through their noise-cancelling headphones for most of the time they aren't in calls
Your associate is a moron
He's being a dick. It's probably the biggest adopted commonality over the last 5 years, not related to COVID.
That said, and as you said, just eat your shit sandwich. He is wrong but it's not worth ruffling feathers. Just appease, get the internship done, and remember not to be a hardo in a few years when you're in their position.
Lesson learned indeed. Being a hardo doesn't pay off professionally, and I can clearly see people actually avoiding this dude at any even outside the office. He's literally getting nothing out of it. No point in making others miserable
Your associate sounds like a hardo d bag
Bro absolutely tell him to fuck off - literally everyone listens to music
I'd say you like the white noise and it helps you focus better
I would tell you to ignore it completely, but you're right that an intern can't really make enemies. Just say it works for you
