35. Maybe this counts as a pattern.
I have applied for supervisory positions three times, and each of those times I have been the second choice. When we did the Myers-Briggs test at work I found I'm an ISTJ, I being for "introvert," of course. The three department supervisors and the department manager are all ESTJs, which seems to me to be a pretty crazy coincidence. I have at least equal qualifications and years of experience as those women, and I'm less obese, so if it's weight discrimination it's that I'm not chubby enough. I do quality assurance and train new hires, so I'm in as high a position as I can go without directly supervising people. I communicate well enough at work, because that's my turf and I feel comfortable, but I suck in social situations or at small talk, and I really believe there is a perception that I'm not quite as smart as those who have the gift of gab.
