The Work Experience

Art of spotting and managing office pests via SMH

Another book on toxic work culture and personality types to look out for:

  • Narcissists
  • The Withholder
  • The Socialised Psychopath
  • The Egomaniac
  • The Bully
  • The Sleaze
  • The Rigid Control Freak
  • The Aggressive
  • The Histrionic
  • The Passive-Aggressive Manipulator

These lists are like celebrity photo galleries. There’s something sordid about the act of looking at them and identifying people with labels. I don’t discount their value to helping anyone negotiate the work environment I just wish such lists were accompanied with positive examples to give people a more balanced perspective and provide tools to help readers evaluate those around them more holistically.

Anyway, to read more about these traits and the book go to
