No Asshole Rule: Post #5 - Self Control

Self Control…Taming your Inner Jerk: All of us are temporary jerks at one time or another, especially under time and task pressure. The key is to recognize it and respond to it and to realize that anger, anxiety, depression, and contempt are highly contagious in the workplace. If you view your contempt, as an example, as a contagious disease, it might help you regulate your behavior. Experiments show that people who join such toxic organizations start to act like their jerk bosses. The Arabic proverb applies: “A wise man associating with the vicious becomes an idiot.”
