#GeniusUpDailyNews!: Popularity still matters at work, and other career trends this week.


The office: It’s just like high school. Many of the same social dynamics that governed your school cafeteria also exist at work: Popular employees are more likely to get hired, promoted, or earn a large salary, writes UNC Chapel Hill psychology professor Mitch Prinstein. But certain types of popularity are healthier, and more productive, than others. Prinstein warns against status-seeking, attention-grabbing behavior that often leads to loneliness and relationship problems. Instead, it’s better to work on your likeability, which involves making others feel valued. Those with high levels of likeability are less likely to experience problems with addiction, anxiety, and depression. • Share your thoughts: #GeniusUpDailyNews
