5 Worst Types of Colleagues You’ll Meet at Work

                Unless you plan to be a bum for the rest of your life, you cannot avoid going to work.  And as an employee, you are expected to act accordingly to the rules and regulations of your company which includes not punching a co-worker in the face. We all get stressed and frustrated at work and as difficult as it is already, some people somehow makes it even harder simply by being themselves.

Here are the 5 worst types of colleague you’ll definitely meet (or may have already) at work:

The Know-It-All  

5 Worst Types of Colleagues You’ll Meet at Work

                Ugh, nobody likes a know-it-all, right? But for some reason, they keep on breeding and there are lots of them in the workplace. They dote on you and criticizing every little thing you do, correcting every single wrongs and the worst part is, they’re not even your boss. How to deal with them? Be a know-it-all yourself but only use it to defend yourself. Prove to them that you know what you’re doing and no one else should tell you how to do your job unless they’re the ones paying your bills.

The Get Me Out Of Here

5 Worst Types of Colleagues You’ll Meet at Work

                This type is easy to spot. They’re the ones who are slumped on their chairs all day, complaining about everything. They complain about having to wake up so early. They complain about the traffic. They complain about the rude bus driver they just had a fight with. They complain about the weather, the train, the sky, the desk and the way the hours go oh so slow. They have always told you that they’re going to resign and find a better job somewhere but they’ve been saying that for years now and they’re still in the company, complaining. Stay away from this type if you don’t want to become like them.

The Mega Phone

                Happy-go-lucky, cheerful, giddy but loud, very loud-these are the traits of the Mega Phones. This type of colleague is harmless at first if you’re new at the office but once they get to know you, they’ll talk to you as if you’re at the other side of the office. Always excited about everything, they like telling stories you care nothing about and you’d seriously want to put something inside their mouths to get them to stop talking but of course, you can’t do that so just pop on your earphones and listen to heavy metal instead.

The Politician

                Ah, nothing says corporate drama than office politics. This is where the office politicians thrive. This is their battlefield. They work their way into the ranks and befriends everyone, especially the big bosses. They often make themselves popular by doing people favors but don’t get fooled, once they get to the position that they want, they’ll do an entire 360 and become the monster they always were.

The Dunce

                Idiots are fun that’s why every village wants one but definitely not in the workplace. Dunces are little children on “Bring Your Child To Work Day”. They literally don’t know or care about what they’re doing as long as they’re getting paid for it. They are most of the time subordinates who keep bugging you with questions rather than taking the initiative to figure things out on their own. It’ll make you wonder if they’re really just lazy or a legit bunch of idiots who miraculously know how to make a resume and pass a job interview.

5 Ways the Media Has Manipulated You                

                                Manipulation is a type of social influence that aims to change the perception or behavior of others through underhanded, deceptive, or even abusive tactics.  You can deny this as long as you want but we are all victims of manipulation every day since we got exposed to media. What media am I talking about? Everything from television programs, magazine, radio shows, the internet and all other methods of spreading information. It’s kind of like being hypnotized to do certain things or believe in something and we don’t even know we’re doing it. If you still think only you command your own mind, here are the 5 Ways Media Has Manipulated You:

1. Convincing you to Consume More Than You Should

                We all know the awesome power of the advertisements. And even though we hate seeing these 30 second clips while we are watching our favorite show, there’s nothing we can do but wait for them to be over so we won’t miss a thing from what we’re really trying to watch. In turn, we are forced to see these commercials that do nothing but sell us something we don’t need by making it seem like we do. They use flowery words, attractive people, sets and famous actors to convince you that your life will be complete if you just buy their products or give you the illusion that you CAN also have it all, just like your favorite celebrity can. And seeing all of those every day will definitely have an impact on your perception of things.

2. Reporting Half Truths

                When it comes to news reports, people are always so trusting especially if it comes from a reputable television network. What most people don’t know is that everything we see or hear on the news are all super filtered that almost only ½ of the actual story remains, sometimes it’s zero when the network is trying to protect a personality or a political figure. Most of the time, these networks often create expose programs to make it seem like they’re trying to uncover an actual truth. But in the end, they only manage to pose in more questions than answers.

3.  Making Sure You Remain Stupid

                The people who controls the media, controls the nation. That’s why they keep making mediocre shows for the masses’ mediocre minds and make it appear as if it’s the best thing on prime time TV even though the concept has been used over and over again in the past 10 years. Most of us don’t seem to mind the mindless television shows as long as they see others clapping for it, winning prizes and getting to hug celebrities that don’t really care about your poverty. They took out all the educational shows for kids and replaced it with Korean series’. That way, kids would be more educated about the history of other countries rather than their own because once they start caring about their country, they will start questioning the government. That’s why they want to keep you ignorant for as long as they want to rule.

4. Changing Stories and Rewriting History

                If you only get your information from the television, internet and newspapers, you are screwed. Why? Because there are loads of wrong information injected into your system every single day! Television shows have been tampering with actual historical events in favor of political figures and propagandas they support for years. They have lulled you into thinking that those who oppose the government are disturbing the peace. Let me tell you now that there is no peace. The peace you’re experiencing right now is brought to you by your compliance to the system. It’s all staged and they’re hiding the chaos so you’d submit willingly without resistance and accept whatever lie they feed you and accept it as truth; a lie that will be passed down to your children to the next until the truth is no more.

5. Distract you from what’s Important

                The most important tactic the media uses to manipulate us all is through distractions. Especially now that our attention spans are shortening as technology advances, it’s easier for them to keep us from questioning authority. There are a lot of awful happenings around the world that require our attention but most of us would rather update their Instagram with the latest picture of their lunch rather than spread the word. Most of us would rather browse through their Facebook newsfeed than give a crap about the corruption in the government. We aren’t even mad enough to do anything instead we take our anger to social media and we just let it fester there. The people who controls the media knows this and they’re going to keep coming up with distractions so we won’t ever oppose them. They think we are stupid and easily manipulated and we are proving them right.
