Find out what kind of people others don't like working with and whether you are one of them.

You have become greedy

In 2003, researcher Dacher Kelner decided to check what happens to people when they come to power and lose control over their behaviour. He invited students to the experiment - described in the Psychological Review - and divided them into groups. There were "employees" and "bosses" in each. As soon as the young people were given positions, they started to behave differently. The change was visible even at the moment of eating (during the experiment they brought cakes on a plate). The bosses of the group were glistening while eating, they did not close their mouths, they were more greedy. Everything they said and did was more ostentatious. The power they received during the experiment made them behave towards their co-workers in a less elegant way.

2. You're practicing "spying"

Which is? You do everything not to work, but to burden others with your responsibilities. It turns out that the research carried out by shows that 36% of the tensions between the employees cause the responsibility for the tasks to be shifted to others.

3. you gossip about everything and everyone

It is one thing to have loose conversations on coffee or cigarette, and another to have regular gossip about colleagues in the company kitchen. Spreading gossip is very unwelcome in companies with a high work culture. If they additionally harm the employee's good name or the company may end up calling the boss for a rug.

4. you are a master of malicious remarks

Malice is one of the vices not liked in the team - aggressors. Before you get a patch of the aggressor, know that you only show your weakness with such behaviour. A study by Nathanael Fast, a professor at the University of Southern California, shows that people start to manifest negative emotions when they feel that their ego is in danger.

5. you are the only one who counts

Your coworkers value the people they can count on. If you work only for your own success and leave your colleagues alone, even if you have the opportunity to help them, you will not win their sympathy. Remember also that someday you may need to switch to duty or look for a contact with someone from the industry. Who can you count on then? It is worth working with respect for the whole team.

6 The prose of office life, i.e. you borrow things without asking

You don't need the research, you just need to talk to your employees to find out that on the list of the most irritating behaviors is borrowing things (books, cups, tea) from other people's desks without asking. In a word, "good habit, don't borrow".

All research shows that no one wants to cooperate with toxic people in the long run, let alone be subject to such a person in the office. Economic indicators show that in countries where there is a high work culture and certain behaviours are unacceptable, employees work effectively and are satisfied with their place of employment - says Joanna ┼╗ukowska, an expert at job service. Therefore, if you see these vices in you, it is worthwhile to start working with yourself. As business coaches convince, the simplest way to gain sympathy can be a simple statement made towards a colleague: "Thank you, I really appreciate working with you". There is only one condition, it must be said honestly - the expert advises.
