Chapter 5: Case Incident 1: The nice trap? 1) I do not agree that what employers want in employees (agreeable employees) contradicts with what employees actually do best (disagreeable employees). Employers like agreeable employees because they are better liked and they are more compliant and comforting to others. However, employees show disagreeableness not because they are incompliant or repulsive. They show disagreeableness mostly towards their job, they want to achieve a better performance. They are not trying to be intentionally rude, but they are more aggressive and goal oriented that they so care about the job performance. Maybe this means they are not good at working in team, but they definitely have high efficiency. What disagreeable employees do best is actually not disagreeableness, but efficiency and achievement. Agreeableness is a very important trait in employment; however, a company cannot grow without some efficient employees.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
