This goes to show that real-life is just High School expansion pack. Back when I was a teen I believed that as an adult, things will change for the better, and I will get a good job and have a better life than my detractors. Oh how fucking wrong was I.There's an article that covers this paper, i'll copy paste some important parts.
tl;dr Victims of workplace mistreatment may also be seen as bullies themselves, even if they've never engaged in such behavior, and despite exemplary performance. Bullies, on the other hand, may be given a pass if they are liked by their supervisor. There is a bias toward victim blaming.
"The results are eye-opening," Taylor says. "I think they are useful because, given all of these accounts in the media of bad behavior happening, people are often left wondering how can we blame victims, and why do we let these perpetrators off the hook, why do they go unpunished?"
@Atavistic Autist You were right when you said psychopaths succeed in today's world.
Taylor attributes the flawed decision making to cognitive biases, such as the halo effect, in which positive attributes mask negative traits, or the horns effect, in which one negative attribute casts a person in a completely negative light.
The researchers performed their work over the course of four studies. The first two studies showed through surveys of employees and supervisors that supervisors tend to view victims of bullying as being bullies themselves.
Studies three and four were experiments where participants evaluated employees based on descriptions of their work performance, as well as how they treated others and how they were treated.
They found that even when evaluators were clearly informed that a victim did not mistreat others, victims were still seen as bullies. In the fourth study, they found that not only are victims seen as bullies despite evidence to the contrary, but also that they receive lower job performance evaluations as a result of being victimized.
Your behavior doesn't fucking matter. Jfl at people using the just world fallacy these days, like we live in a social meritocracy
The researchers found support in all four studies that bullies were less likely to be seen as deviant when their supervisor considered them to be good performers.
People get away with treating others like absolute shit. Reminds me of when a kid is bullied at school, he's beaten and mocked all day, grows up scarred and insecure. People will tell him that HIS social skills were bad and the social skills of his bullies were GOOD. Psychopaths who torture you are seen as socially apt, if not outright gifted. What does this say about society?

This present wicked world belongs to the prince of the air, AKA Satan, so it's natural that the most evil people are the ones who thrive here whereas the least evil people not only fail but are also gaslighted as the bad ones on top of it.@Atavistic Autist You were right when you said psychopaths succeed in today's world.
You're welcome bruvI like this sentence
How is that going for you? I also quit since the end of april last year...but might need to get some job. Weather I like it or not...I do need the buxxThis is one of the biggest reasons why I quit my job and became a NEETcel.
Convince me that this guy was actually the aggressor and not just some ascended incel the town decided to purge because he wouldn't stay in his lane.Cope. In time periods that weren't so socially alienated, psychopaths often got lynched by solidaristic townfolk, and were denounced for their tyrannical behaviors rather than enabled in them.
This happened as recently as 1981 in small town, White America:
A new documentary series that aired its first episode on Thursday explores how a small Missouri town banded together in 1981 to kill a 'gun-toting' bully known as Ken Rex McElroy (inset).www.dailymail.co.uk
Note that nobody in the town snitched on those who killed the veritable psychopath Rex McElroy, despite there being dozens of witnesses! They were united in action and supported his public, extrajudicial execution. His house was later burned to the ground after his degenerate family was forced to flee.
This fully explains why vigilante justice has been stigmatized along with "racism" under muh kkk propaganda, btw. Such things are unthinkable now.
School never ends despite what people tell you. Office politics is just school 2.0Sounds like school.
People are nothing more than animals, they do a downright malicious act then try to justify said act to themselves and if they can't justify it they'll simply forgive and forget "my past is my past"
just a douchebag coworker. shitty construction work culture where yelling and degrading apprentices is normal and you're expected to put up with it as if it's the military. Pretended to be my friend then would shit on me at work. Would shit on everything about me. Call me a pussy for ever questioning safety of what we're doing. he was personal friends with the boss too. Before him I had to work with 2 pack a day smoking alcoholic scumbag who was an asshole too. I asked the boss for a transfer but he couldn't give me one so I quit.Any stories that you're willing to share?
Not even objective evidence will change their mind. Halo is everything. Popularity is everything.it's extremely hard to swallow, that being bullied by charming and attractive people effectively works as a valid value judgement, making others judge you and rate your performance more poorly, even if the initial superficial reaction is to defend you from the bullying
i can't get this image out of my head, of the 'good people' coming in to check in on you and make sure you're alright and not too upset about what the bullies said, then feeling disgusted and quickly leaving to go socialize with the popular bulliesNot even objective evidence will change their mind. Halo is everything. Popularity is everything.
Yeah imagine them starting to think "ew what a fucking loser, he deserved it" or "ew what a trouble maker, fucking piece of shit" as they interact with you despite all the good things you do and the hard work you put ini can't get this image out of my head, of the 'good people' coming in to check in on you and make sure you're alright and not too upset about what the bullies said, then feeling disgusted and quickly leaving to go socialize with the popular bullies
yeah good luck getting invited for drinks after workYeah imagine them starting to think "ew what a fucking loser, he deserved it" or "ew what a trouble maker, fucking piece of shit" as they interact with you despite all the good things you do and the hard work you put in
