Anna Wintour on the Most Difficult People to Deal With

Erin Fitzpatrick

Anna Wintour is no stranger to doling out highly quotable statements, and her latest interview is no exception. Wintour spoke to The New York Times for the newspaper's piece about Condé Nast's recent changes, and she had some brilliant quips that will make you love her even more.

For starters, she has a message for her doubters. The NYT asked Wintour about sexism, and she admitted that it factors into how she's viewed. “But I decided long ago that I can’t let any of that bother me,” she said. “If my style is too direct for some, maybe they should toughen up a bit.” 

She then went on to explain her leadership style and shed light on the one type of person she has no patience for. “I am decisive, you know," she told The Times. "I don’t believe in wasting anybody’s time. I like to be honest. I like to be clear. In my own personal career, I have felt almost the most difficult thing to deal with is someone who doesn’t tell you what they are thinking.”

So there you have it: Wintour doesn't like indirect people and favours those who tell it like it is—just like she does.
