Psy­chol­o­gists be­lieve that be­ing friends with your ex-lover could be an in­di­ca­tion of psy­cho­pathic ten­den­cies ei­ther in you or them. Psy­chopaths are said to poses the dark triad of per­son­al­ity traits, which are in­sen­si­tiv­ity, nar­cis­sism and ma­nip­u­la­tion. This ba­si­cally ex­plains why they are so com­fort­able us­ing oth­ers to their own ad­van­tage. Re­search from Oak­land Uni­ver­sity has shown peope are more likely to keep their exes in their so­cial cir­cle to main­tain de­sir­able ex­changes of favours; es­pe­cially of sex­ual na­ture. So if you’re dat­ing a man who’s still very close to his ex, run! If that hap­pens to be your sit­u­a­tion, maybe you should see some­one about that… For in­creased chances of get­ting your way, be it a raise or changes to your work­ing en­vi­ron­ment, frame your ar­gu­ment from your boss’s per­spec­tive. It’s about stay­ing true to your cause but show­ing your boss what ben­e­fits are in it for him or her. For ex­am­ple, if you want to change from the stan­dard 8-5 work­ing hours to flex-time, prove to them how this will be more ef­fec­tive for them and kick up pro­duc­tiv­ity. De­liver the in­for­ma­tion through the jar­gon your boss would ap­pre­ci­ate such as facts and fig­ures or nar­ra­tives based on what they pre­fer. Us­ing their lan­guage will make them want to read your pro­posal.
