One of the higher up bosses at my work came and spoke to me this morning. We spoke about many things, but one thing she mentioned was my "bad attitude". Her main example was something that happened last Wednesday.
Now, I have a fairly accurate self-perception. I know I can have a bad attitude, and I know how I act when I have it. I get a look on my face, I sometimes roll my eyes, and I get an edge to my voice.
During the Wednesday incident, I actually spoke to her like I wasn't bothered at all. I said it wasn't a big deal, I smiled, etc. In her mind, she heard a negative tone and saw me head-bob (I don't know how to describe the way some people move their head while having an attitude. I have issues with movement so I know I don't do this lol)
I kind of feel like she has seen me have an attitude before (as I said, I know I have an attitude at times), and so she assumes I am always having an attitude, even when I am smiling and being nice. I also don't know where she got the impression that I do a head bob, since it is something I don't do.
So my question to everyone is this:
Is there anything I can do to change her perception of me? I don't know how to change actions I don't even do, so I'm kind of at a loss here.
