Today I was told I would not be hired because I give the impression that I'm not a team player.
I shrugged my shoulders and never denied the accusation.
If someone is a team player, what kind of person are they? If someone is not a team player, what kind of person does this make them?
I believe this was a euphemism for me being a cold, emotionally detached--perhaps rude--person. Is this completely nonsensical?
EDIT: Yes I know what being a team player literally means. I want to know what it infers, or what it could possibly infer. What characteristics are synonymous with people who aren't team players?
