The old adage "misery loves company" was found to ring true after a recent study done on personalities in the workplace. Craig Parks, co-author of the study and a professor at Washington State University, found out that helpful and unselfish co-workers were the least liked in office. While conventional wisdom would have you believe that helpful workers would be admired and liked within the workplace, Parks found out that they are, in fact, liked less for "raising the bar" for overall employee expectations.
