Being Funny at Work Might Get You a Promotion

Being Funny at Work Might Get You a Promotion

ashs-students-laughing

One way to get promoted is to work your butt off every day, and keep track of how it increased revenue or made the company stronger. Or . . . apparently you could just be funny?

A new study by researchers at Harvard and the University of Pennsylvania found that being funny at work makes people think you’re more capable than you actually are.

And the best part is, you don’t have to be that funny for it to work. Telling a mildly amusing joke still has an effect, because it takes confidence just to tell it. And your co-workers subconsciously pick up on that.

The study had volunteers listen to people tell jokes, then rate how confident and capable each person was. Telling a funny joke that was appropriate for the workplace had the biggest effect. Because it made the person seem confident and smart.

If their joke bombed, it had a negative effect on how capable they seemed. But they STILL seemed more confident, just for telling it.

Making sure it’s “appropriate” for the workplace is huge though. If the joke makes people laugh, it might not hurt you. But if it’s offensive AND it bombs, people will think you’re an idiot.

The Secret to Getting People to Share Office Gossip Is Making Them Laugh

The Secret to Getting People to Share Office Gossip Is Making Them Laugh

telling-secrets-big-e1379620235254

If you’re wondering why your coworkers never share their sweet, delicious turds of office gossip with you, maybe this is it.

A new study out of University College London found the secret to getting people to tell you secrets is . . . to get them LAUGHING.

Once you make your coworkers laugh, they’ll almost immediately open up to you . . . and makes them FAR more likely to share a secret.

And it gets better: If you’re REALLY making them laugh, you’ll disarm them so much that they won’t even realize they’re sharing stuff with you they probably shouldn’t.

On the other hand . . . someone might try using this on YOU, to get you to rat. So now that you know, be vigilant and never laugh at work again.
