A Toxic Boss Can Transform You Into An Office Bully

Your boss can really influence your personality, finds a new study. Researchers from the University of Manchester’s Business School asked 1,200 participants about their own well-being and their relationship with their boss. They discovered people with bosses who displayed psychopathic and narcissistic traits had lower job satisfaction and scored higher on a clinical meaure of depression. Study leader Abigail Phillips adds, ” Workplace bullying is obviously unpleasant for the target but also creates a toxic working environment for all involved.In short, bad bosses, those high in psychopathy and narcissism, have unhappy and dissatisfied employees who seek to ‘get their own back’ on the company.” (Daily Mail
