    I don't know though... If you say 'average', then by definition roughly half of your co-workers are better than you. So you probably won't be promoted. But if you mean 'average' in the sense of 'average joe', then Joe may well have certain qualities in which his averageness lifts him above the average for the boss. Maybe he is dependable and non-threatening, or maybe the boss likes to surround himself with Average Joes because he is an Average Joe. Maybe any number of things...

    It can help you adapt to changes better. But, true, if everyone thinks you are a dick, that might not matter.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    In high school, I was an assistant to one of the office workers there, and after a few days of working there she took someone else to do the job because I wasnt "snappy" enough in the way I executed work. I did everything right and all, but I guess it wasnt enough.

You get to view the news media as a cutthroat business with very low profits that can't afford real reporters anymore and instead relies on regurgitating official statements (press releases) and either obsesses over the appearance of neutrality (so provides no analysis of these statements) or goes far over the deep end into partisanship despite being fully aware that they're reporting lies. You get to view the advertising media as a soulless machine that will stop at nothing to sell a product and knows full well that the best way to sell a product to people is by convincing them that they are broken without it. You get to know that religion is the means by which those who want your resources stir pathos in an effort to get you to give those resources to them.

    Knowing all this, in my opinion, is much more helpful than it is hurtful.

    With regard to this stuff? It's the same world. It's just become far too easy to sleep through our problems.

    We like those like ourselves.

    And as we all fall on the Bell Curve, almost all of us fall in the middle, and few fall at either end.

    So if we fall at either end of the Bell Curve, we will be socially excluded.
