    No-guns sign response. Ostracism, shunning, being ignored is worse than bullying.

    Being ignored is WORSE than being bullied: Ostracism is more psychologically damaging, claim experts

    Researchers found feeling excluded leads to greater job dissatisfaction
    Being ostracised can lead to health problems and cause people to quit
    This dissatisfaction is higher than in people who are harassed or bullied
    The results comes from a series of surveys by a Canadian university

    The famous quote claims the only thing in life worse than being talked about, is not being talked about - and a new study may have proved this to be the case.

    Being ignored at work has been found to be worse for a personís health than people who are harassed or bullied.

    Researchers found that while most consider ostracism less harmful than bullying, feeling excluded is significantly more likely to lead job dissatisfaction, quitting and health problems.

    I'm sure you have a point here that is not related to the bare recitation of the facts elucidated in the article.

    But I'll be darned if I know what it might be.

    right now the study cited is nothing more than a series of publicity promos for a study which has yet to be released in a peer reviewed scientific journal.

    Please do not get confused between my personality & my attitude. My personality is who I am ~ my attitude depends on who you are and how you act.
