Feeling good at work may lead to negative outcomes

LONDON - Contrary to popular opinion, it can be good to feel bad at work, while feeling good in the workplace can also lead to negative outcomes, says a research.

"The findings of the studies challenge the widely held assumption that in the workplace positive emotions generate or engender a positive outcome and vice versa," said Dirk Lindebaum from University of Liverpool in Britain, Science Daily reported.

Being too positive in the workplace, rather than resulting in greater well-being and greater productivity, can lead to complacency and superficiality, the findings of one study showed. On the other hand, anger does not always lead to negative outcomes and can be used as a force for good through acting upon injustices, the study said.
