Study Reveals That Easily Offended People Are Less Productive, Bad Employees

They “consume a lot of time complaining about trivial matters”

A study conducted by a Professor at San Diego State University has discovered that people who are easily offended make terrible employees because they never get anything done.

The study, conducted by Dr. Jeremy Berneth, involved asking almost 400 employees, aged 25.9 on average, across seven US colleges about different events that have recently gotten “substantial media attention”.

The study notes that the events consisted of “17 items developed to assess the proclivity to be offended, eight moral outrage items, 11 microagression items and nine political correctness items.”

It noted that some people have a high “proclivity to be offended” (PTBO), which the study describes as “a state-like tendency to be sensitive to customarily innocuous societal events and traditions,” for example “playing of the United States’ National Anthem.”

Those with a high PTBO have a “tendency to view an array of events and/or traditions as offensive.”

They also “are likely to feel that social events or traditions to which they take offense also violate moral or equitable standards,” the study notes.

Basically, they’re easily triggered by anything.

Dr Berneth found that high PTBOs are less productive, because they are constantly worrying about how the organisations they work for are “less fair,” than everywhere else, and they “consume a lot of time complaining about trivial matters.”

“The person offended by everyday occurrences diverts important and limited cognitive resources away from the client (and potential sale) towards a task-irrelevant stimuli.” the study notes.

The study also notes that the easily offended are less concerned with helping others, despite constantly engaging in virtual signalling to suggest that is their primary goal.

The study notes that while “their prescriptive morality dictates helping and providing for others”, they are actually less likely to engage in “citizenship behavior”.

The study noted that “PTBO negatively correlated with task performance and positively correlated with counterproductive work behaviors, suggesting not only that these individuals engage in fewer citizenship behaviors but also engage in behaviors managers and organizations want their employees to avoid.”

Video: Virginia Kids Made To Sit Outside on Concrete In Freezing Cold For ‘Mask And Snack Break’

This time they didn’t even get buckets to sit on

The Fairfax County Parents Association has posted video taken from this week showing school children being seated on the ground outside in the snow in what school officials have described as a ‘mask and snack break.’

The footage shows a teacher from Waynewood Elementary school close to Alexandria reading to the kids while they sit apart on the concrete.

The group noted that the temperature was ‘well below freezing’:

Fairfax County Public Schools issued a statement in response noting “This morning on Twitter, an anonymous parent group posted a video that was taken outside of Waynewood Elementary School in Alexandria. In the video, a group of third grade students are taking a snack and mask break in front of the school.”

The statement continues, “The weather conditions were monitored, and the students were outside for less than seven minutes. The teacher was reading a story to keep the students entertained. Students do go outside for mask and snack breaks in cold weather, but that time is limited.”

The response did little to offset anger over the incident:

This activity has been ongoing in schools across the country.

Last month, kindergarten students in Portland, Oregon were forced to sit outside eating lunch on buckets in the near-freezing cold while socially distanced from their classmates.

At least those kids got buckets to sit on, so they’re doing better than in Virginia.

    Video: CNN Panics Over More People Beginning To Ignore COVID Fear Propaganda

    “They’re just ignoring everything and living their lives”

    CNN’s Brian Stelter and Oliver Darcy expressed disbelief and horror Monday that more Americans are beginning to live their lives normally again after two years of media driven pandemic panic and fear.

    Stelter asked a question that everyone already knows the answer to, “is the media out of touch with the public about COVID?”

    In a statement the irony of which can be lost on no one, Darcy replied that yes, the media is out of touch.

    Darcy further proclaimed “I think this is an issue because if people are tuning out what’s going on in cable news…the general population… you know, they’re just, you know, ignoring everything and living their lives and we’re not really getting the information that they need to them.”

    However will fewer than 200,000 Americans who regularly watch primetime CNN be able to cope without their daily dose of virus fearmongering?

    And how will CNN be able to sell more ad time if Americans turn it off and leave their homes?
