When work becomes a major stressor
Working in a hostile environment is something that virtually every person must learn and master if they are to be successful. At the office. people can be pressing…seeking to climb to the top any way that they can get there…and if that means climbing over you, they most likely are eager to do it.
Many people have learned to “fly under the radar” and can be quite good at it, and in fact, we can learn from this individual. You may notice that this person rarely shares anything personal about themselves. They most likely don’t socialize very much with their co-workers other than a business type relationship, and if they must socialize or attend company events, they are just sociable enough to “get the job done”.
It is quite possible that these people, without realizing it, have learned what their temperament needs are and have learned to meet these needs outside the workplace.(1)
