It Took A Study To Learn This?

I read an article today that had an opening paragraph that made me say outloud "Well DUH!" Here is the opening paragraph:

Employees toiling under an abusive supervisor often rebel quietly and indirectly by slacking off on the job and handing in sloppy work.

The article then goes on to say:

Researchers at Florida State University surveyed more than 180 employees from a wide variety of professions, asking whether they had endured a history of abuse from their bosses, then asking a slew of workplace performance questions.

Seriously! They funded a study to discover this! Is this a surprise finding? I sure as hell hope not, because I could have told them all of this without any major thought involved. Nobody does anything very well when unhappy. People don't give 110% to people who are rude, pushy, arrogant, or have abusive personalities.

The article continues, but didn't site anything that I didn't feel common sense should dictate. You can read the whole thing here, but don't expect anything mind-blowing or life-altering.

I hope they didn't get Federal money for this crap!
