Attitude vs. Ability - Which one influences your boss more?

Click here for link to article

From Psychology Today:
"Attitude -- especially a negative one -- might be the determining factor in your relationship with a new employer.

What impresses a new boss more: attitude or ability? If your answer is ability, think again. Attitude -- especially a negative one -- might be the determining factor in your relationship with a new employer.

"We found that supervisors were able to pick up on negative traits such as anger, hostility, or instability early in the relationship," reports David V. Day, Ph.D., assistant professor of psychology at Penn State. "These traits can destroy a good working relationship almost before it begins."

Even if a new employee has considerable ability, a negative attitude is what may stick in the employers mind. And once that first impression is formed, it's hard to change. "Negative personality traits make a more powerful and long-lasting impression than positive ones," notes Day. "And even the most gifted employees are unlikely to join the supervisor's inner circle it they are perceived as angry, irritable, or depressed."

You can probably add Anxiety and Fear to that list.
