When it comes to the workplace, singles and only-children do not mix
New research has suggested a new way to prevent conflict in the workplace.
Dr. Andrejs Ozolins, senior lecturer at the department of psychology at Vaxjo University in Sweden, studied how people get into workplace conflict based on relationship status and birth order.
The study involved 300 participants and Dr. Ozolins found that two groups of people stood out, single people and only children. These groups were most likely to annoy each other.
"It is like a ladder with youngest children at the bottom and single, only-children at the top," Ozolins said. "One reason sums it up: Relationships. If you have siblings, you soon learn that you canít always get the biggest piece of the cake every time."
Ozolins says this is an important lesson for the workplace that only children do not know.
He also speculated that since single people do not have anybody to talk to, they tend to be more prone to get involved in conflicts. However, he states that a good friend can make up for the loneliness if the person is sociable (loneliness being a major factor for the likelihood of conflicts to occur in his opinion).
