Seat a diverse group of people in a small room, close the door, add a list of problems (known as an agenda), then throw in intermittent technology fails. This is known as a meeting. Irritations do arise.

The folks at Igloo software surveyed 1,000 people on the meeting behaviors and scenarios that most annoy, and they uncovered some not-so-surprising data. Highlights:

  • Not all annoyances are perceived equally: Age and gender can skew response.

  • Half those surveyed thought of meetings in positive terms, and the other half in negative terms.

  • Think outside the box took the prize for the most irksome buzz-phrase.

  • Biggest pet peeve? Unnecessary meetings, followed by convos that veer off-topic. Others included repeating, taking calls, side conversations and dominating.

The full results of the survey are illustrated in this infographic:
