Dave’s Diary: On The Job – Get Mean, Get Ahead, Make Bank

How many times have we heard “Nice guys finish last”?  Seems to be true if the race is to the bank!  Mean people make more money than nice guys according to researchers from Notre Dame, Cornell and the University of Western Ontario.

Their work reveals that those who are nice at work — that is, in the sense of being agreeable — make less money than people who are mean. While there are definite 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 the researchers conclude that “agreeableness is negatively related to income and earnings.”
