How many hidden rules do you know?
1. It is advantageous to get up early if there is no interest to hibernate.
So what's the difference between a smart "idiot" in the workplace and a real one? In normal times, they look exactly the same. They are slow to do things, and they are dull in speech. They can speak half a sentence and understand half a sentence with them. Sometimes they are not smart when they do things. But these two kinds of people are quite different. People who pretend to be stupid are actually smart, which is a great threat to others at the same level. They can often move up slowly but steadily, and they can survive any dangerous time. The real stupid people are the ones who can't understand words or do things, so they are the most easily eliminated in the workplace. Because how to distinguish them? The key is to see how things are handled differently.
Of course, things and things are not the same. When they are not important, the reactions of the two kinds of people are exactly the same. But when a thing has great benefits or will bring great influence, the stupid people will have reactions. Because this kind of people, usually in unprofitable time dormant, the best hidden people do not feel their own existence. And when it's profitable, it's a long time to plan a layout and occupy a good place for itself. Anything that could benefit them, or hurt them, would make them jump out. They may not risk too much, but they are often different from the past, becoming smart and flexible. This is called "the principle of seeking profits".
2. A fool is cleverer than a wise man.
It is often mentioned that in the workplace, people who seem smart are not very successful, they will be suppressed, they will change jobs, they will change jobs. A few years later, when the smart people who have been tossing around look back, they find that the stupid people who could not see themselves before have all ascended the high position and become the objects that the smart people look up to. Cleverness and stupidity are relative. Everyone's standards are different. You are recognized as smart people in the workplace. They are just smart on the surface and let everyone see it. Let everyone see their own cleverness, there is not much benefit in the workplace. Because for a boss, being smart doesn't mean being able. For the boss, being smart means being difficult to manage. For colleagues, being smart means stress. When you express something harmful or unprofitable, it will only cause trouble to yourself, which is not good except to satisfy your vanity. But those who pretend to be stupid are different. They deliberately restrain their sharpness and cover up the brilliance that will cause others' jealousy. In this way, in addition to the threat of pretending to be smart, they can also make others look down on them and think they are not threatening. But in the workplace, this kind of small vision is very fatal. At the critical moment, it can bring unexpected results.
3. Safety is more important than victory.
Why do "stupid people" in the workplace last longer than "smart people"? This is determined by the nature of the workplace. People always think that the workplace is a show, which is more intelligent than who is more capable. In fact, the workplace is not a show, but a Colosseum. It is not who is more powerful, but who can survive. You can show yourself freely and show all the advantages in the show. But in the Colosseum, you need to be deceitful and forbearing. You need to hide, because the first one who rushes out will eventually die early. Only the last one can live the longest. In sports competitions and draft shows, victory is the key, so players need to show all their strength in a moment. In the survival game, it's safer than safety, so it's better not to perform than to perform, and it's better not to move than to move. It's the best way to get up early.
4. Don't compete with smart people. Let them die.
In fact, the "smart people" in the workplace are very annoying. They not only pretend to be smart, but also like to give directions. They should guide everything. Even a lot of new people like to pretend to be experienced and give lectures to old professionals. Don't compete with such "smart people" when you meet them. You have to think that the more intelligent they are, the faster they die. So, don't be smarter than them, don't directly contradict them, and don't remind them. You can let them go, or even hold them for a few words, so that their tails are higher. When such "smart people" get complacent, they will gradually become the public enemy of the workplace and the center of jealousy. At that time, they will not be satisfied with anything and the whole workplace will become their pressure. These people's "cleverness", in fact, is to die. You fight with them, in essence, to turn yourself into a "smart person", you will have the same result, maybe worse. And you follow them and hold them, in fact, to speed up the process of their elimination. No matter when you say a good word, it's good for you. It's not good for others. So it's OK to say more.
