Do Mean People Win Really?
Life isn't fair -- but this just seems too UNFAIR to be true! A study from three major universities proves that people who are nice at work make less money than people who are mean.
The caveat is that it applies mostly to men. Mean Men Win. I guess that is why Don Draper never gets fired on Mad Men.
The Wall Street Journal backs that up by saying even though there are advantages to being nice to others at work, including the fact that you will be better liked by your co-workers, the bottom line is that "agreeableness is negatively related to income and earnings."
How do people keep a job when they are so obviously mean? Are their bosses scared of them, too? Today's Question: DOES IT PAY TO BE MEAN?
