I agree with "intrapersonal" possibly being hard to understand, as per gparyani's answer, but feel that "personal issues" is ambiguous. My proposed way of phrasing it: Questions relating to one's own thoughts and feelings are off-topic for this site. If applicable, instead ask a specific question about interactions with others which might be affected by ...

As one of those who originally voted to close it, I'm ready to receive a public beating, but please hear me out first. Flater wrote a comment, that covers it excellently and is worth being presevered here: I would argue that this is not a matter of interpersonal skill. Workplace rules are in place regardless of how you feel about them. Your supervisor's ...

This is now live with the close reason as suggested (last box on the answer) Let's take some inspiration by the options users have posted before: I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because unfortunately, this question appears to be asking “What should I do?”, which the community has determined to not be a good fit for Interpersonal Skills Stack ...

I propose the following close reason: Questions seeking advice on what to do instead of how to do it are off-topic. It's just not what this Stack is about. Additionally, they're a bad fit for a Q&A site because it's difficult to determine the correct answer, and strangers on the Internet may not be the best source of advice anyway. For more ...

Slightly reworded: I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it appears to be asking “What should I do?”, which is currently not a good on-topic question for Interpersonal Skills. Instead, tell us your goal, and we will help you achieve that. I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it appears to be asking “What should I do?”...

I like the current answers, but I think we should model the phrasing closer to the "What Should I Do?" close reason text: Questions should ask for help achieving a specific goal. Your question is asking for personal advice on "what to do" without defining a goal; this is too subjective. Edit your question to explain what you hope to achieve and how you ...

I'd love seeing more people use custom close reason comments. And if you're going to use the same one a lot, the autoreviewcomments script is a great place to start! You can just add it to your browser (chrome/firefox) as an extension, or as an userscript to use with TamperMonkey or GreaseMonkey. Cautionary note though: I like these autocomments a lot ...

Yes it should be reopened. See this discussion on the broader topic. My comment on your question suggested that you might get a better answer on the Workplace, but wasn't meant to say it was off-topic here. I think some people might have interpreted it as such.

I was the one that made that comment, and I simply used the format given in the "other" reason, and there really isn't much to say on that question. "other" option gives us a nice format of "I am voting to close this question as off topic because...." so that we can just fill in the blank there. I have no idea where the question could be asked as well. ...

There are several things to consider here. I think it's worth explaining what we mean when we talk about intrapersonal skills, for not everyone is familiar with that term. I relied on that site to further explain the term. Another thing is to provide further explanation and reading if OP wants to know why we don't accept intrapersonal skills questions here ...
