If it seems to you that only those who are cocky and arrogant to get ahead, take heart! According to new performance review-based study from Baylor University, the more honesty and humility an employee may have, the higher their job performance will be rated.

But that's according to supervisor assessments, and it would be natural for them to give higher scores to employees who don't annoy them, and are not obviously gunning for their jobs. Still, it's nice to know that there is some academic proof to the conventional Biblical wisdom that "the meek shall inherit the earth."
