"Being Ignored Is Worse Than Being Bullied: Ostracism Is More Psychologically Damaging"

I have found that women prefer working for men instead of women. I have found that out myself, when women have protested to other women they'd rather be trained by me.

I've also found several attractive women in their 50s tell me they were the objects of dislike and envy from less attractive women, even if younger.

As always, folk tales and mythology popped to mind. The Evil Queen in "Sleeping Beauty," who is eaten alive by envy of a young, more attractive women. The abuse that Cinderella had to suffer at the hands of the envious, hateful, greedy women in the house.

I have found women are in general far more envious than men, and that it usually has to do with being younger/more attractive. That's one of the reasons women don't mentor each other but men do.

I have also found women are overwhelmingly incompetent in management. Some of the jobs to which they are assigned, such as HR, are worthless.

Researchers found feeling excluded leads to greater job dissatisfaction Being ostracised can lead to health problems and cause people to quit This dissatisfaction is higher than in people who are harassed or bullied The results comes from a series of surveys by a Canadian university

"The famous quote claims the only thing in life worse than being talked about, is not being talked about - and a new study may have proved this to be the case.

"Being ignored at work has been found to be worse for a person’s health than people who are harassed or bullied.

"Researchers found that while most consider ostracism less harmful than bullying, feeling excluded is significantly more likely to lead job dissatisfaction, quitting and health problems.

"Researchers from the University of British Columbia's Sauder School of Business found feeling excluded in the workplace leads to greater job dissatisfaction, health problems and causes more people to quit their job, compared to those who are harassed and bullied.

"‘We've been taught that ignoring someone is socially preferable - if you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all,’ said University of British Columbia's Sauder School of Business Professor Sandra Robinson, who co-authored the study.

"The researchers used a series of surveys into bullying, as well as employment studies, to make their findings.

"‘But ostracism actually leads people to feel more helpless, like they're not worthy of any attention at all.’

"The researchers used a series of surveys for their study.

"Firstly, they determined that people consistently rate workplace ostracism as less socially inappropriate, less psychologically harmful and less likely to be prohibited than workplace harassment.

"Additional surveys revealed people who claimed to have experienced ostracism were significantly more likely to report a degraded sense of workplace belonging and commitment, a stronger intention to quit their job, and a larger proportion of health problems.

"The researchers also took an employment survey, taken by a Canadian university, which included feedback on feelings of workplace isolation and harassment and compared it to turnover rates three years after the survey was conducted.

"This found that people who reported feeling ostracized were significantly more likely to have quit.

"‘There is a tremendous effort underway to counter bullying in workplaces and schools, which is definitely important. But abuse is not always obvious,’ continued Robinson.

"‘There are many people who feel quietly victimised in their daily lives, and most of our current strategies for dealing with workplace injustice don't give them a voice.’


"More than half of women are bullied or harassed at work – often by members of their own sex, a major poll has revealed.

"Based on interviews with nearly 23,000 women and more than 2,000 men, the survey is the largest of its kind in the UK.

"It revealed that the biggest enemy facing women in the office or other workplace is often other women, rather than their male colleagues.

Women who had been bullied by a member of their own sex said they felt they may have been targeted because their senior colleague felt threatened by their abilities."

Men get played by these hateful women too. It used to be things were cool with a woman boss or co-worker (for a short time) if you were a young man. Not now. Now they have their plan to lie and gossip about you ready before you even show up. I know it's rude to say it, but a white man (or a black man, for that matter) should not work directly for a woman, a black, or a Jew except on short and limited projects. Better to walk and take a clean hit than submit to the potentially more costly mindf**k. If you want a story or myth to understand this, then read "Uncle Remus Stories" and pay attention to the one about the tar baby.
