Hi Kaustubh,

I hope you know the role of an Editor.

As an editor, you would receive a draft of the article one wishes to print as news. But it may contain lots and lots of facts, or no facts at all, or the writeup is too long, examples there or are missing etc.
Also the written language sometimes may not fit the local language for a common man to understand. Sometimes some articles needs jargons to catch attention. Another important aspect is the headline, it has to be catchy and at the same time, not too long.

Thus for all this editing work, an editor though being a social person, needs his or her space to think creatively.
You cannot talk and concentrate at the same time.
Since any error even a spelling error, the editor would be caught.

So definitely, an editor while at work editing a document, would be restricted to their cubicles.
If you find your work interesting, it would never be boring.

And once the work of editing is done or in the middle if he wants any help or wishes to discuss few things, he definitely can interact with his colleagues.
At the same time, if he is the senior person or at any position, generally this work is a team work, so he may ask his colleagues to search jargon's or jingles or examples etc online. So that too would require exchange of words.

So as an editor and if you are a socializing person, you would find ways and means to make your work interesting.

Hope I have answered your query.

Wish you good luck............
