My employer requested that I be more open with my fellow employees, for example spending time with them during breaks or liking them on Facebook, in order to foster what he calls “intellectual community.” In discussions at work, he tells me, I need to talk more, especially when I don’t have anything to say, because my “precision in answering” is intimidating to the others and discourages discussions. Is it moral to keep this job by faking friendships and pretending to stumble over my words in order for others to feel better about their own?
