Psychologists at Washington State University have determined that nobody likes do-gooders in the workplace.
Selfless people, says WSU social psychologist Craig Parks, are viewed as “deviant rule breakers” — meaning they break the “rule” (is this Parks’ rule or some presumed rule of nature?) that we are supposed to operate according to self-interest. You can read about Parks’ research here.
This must therefore be magnified tenfold for those working at all these do-gooder organizations supposedly dedicated to saving lives, reducing suffering, empowering women and all those annoying kinds of things.
