Everybody is different. Anybody who has spent any real time at any job has come across people he didn't like or couldn't get along with. Its nothing abnormal at all. Just treat them with respect and professionalism. You don't have to have drinks with them or invite them for dinner, just work with them.

For me, i've dealt with them with keeping my distance at first and slowly try to be friendly by asking how to do something or complement them on something. Anything to break ice. Later, you can try getting a little personal by asking about a hobby or family. Don't push them, don't give them any resistance.

Some of the best coworkers I've had started out really butting heads. Some I was never able to break through.
Dealing or adapting is part of being a mature, professional adult.
