When couples spend more time together than usual, they learn a lot about each other. With the coronavirus outbreak making us stay at home, some of us are now working from home. And if you’re spending all day with your partner, they’re going to see what you’re like when you’re at work. That, our dear Pandas, can bring out a whole different side to you that might just shock your loved one.

InStyle Magazine deputy editor Laura Norkin created an immensely popular Twitter thread when she shared how she learned what her partner’s like when they’re in “full work mode.” This inspired others to share their own shocking discoveries about their partners’ professional personas.

Scroll down, upvote your fave Twitter posts, and remember to share what you’ve learned about your partner if you’re both working from home!

Laura’s Twitter thread amassed more than 664k likes, was retweeted over 52k times, and got over 3k comments. That just goes to show that lots of couples are getting to know each other a lot better since the start of the pandemic. A small win for relationships? We hope so!

A lot of people seem to have very different personas when it comes to their work and personal lives. Having two different personas isn’t a bad thing. In fact, it’s very useful and keeps your life in balance. You can be super-professional and ambitious at work while kicking back and relaxing when you’re with your family and friends. It’s a Yin and Yang kind of situation.

According to Timothy Sykes on Entrepreneur, it’s very easy to create a professional persona for yourself. The first step is deciding what kind of person you want to be at work and then following through by acting, dressing, and changing your attitude to fit your new character.

Sykes explains that if you “make a concentrated effort to conduct yourself with the professionalism of a manager or CEO,” then you’re more likely to get that promotion you’ve been angling for. In other words, fake it till you make it.

A guy at work was always so sweet and patient. Anyone could ask him for help and he'd get out of his way to explain it to you. Then his pregnant girlfriend called him at the office, to ask if she should buy a bird that was not a stork, but looked quite similar, as a decoration for the new baby. Henk: What do I care? Buy whatever you want. Don't bother me with this nonsense. I'm busy.

It's probably emotionally exhausting for him to do, but work is all about networking

You should also think about what qualities make you indispensable. Are you the kind of person who always finishes their work before a deadline? Are you dependable? Good. Turn those features into a core part of your professional identity and you’ll be valued more by your coworkers and your boss.

What’s more, you should also avoid a casual attitude while at work, otherwise, you won’t be taken as seriously. You can still have fun, but remember that you’re a professional. Just remember to switch back to your carefree and joyful persona when you’re done working from home for the day!

Work life is different from personal life. Some just have their own characteristics or personality when it comes to work that doesn't apply to their non-work life.

There is me, and there are masks, that I use in different situations. The most important thingb, is to have people around that you don't need any masks.

I already knew about my wife's cursing, temper, and habits long before I proposed... I now recognize her "Polite to customer/coworker now and will kill something later."

That's me, but never publicly. I use headphones in public and speakerphone in private, but I can't hear from speakers very well, and I'm tone deaf so I can't quite hear how I sound

@FLCatLady you may also notice that she has a massive smile and her username is that name as well, something that shows that she DOESN'T CARE and is perfectly happy the way she is.
