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.
