Surprise: Easily Offended People Less Productive, Bad Employees

The hell you say!

Study Reveals That Easily Offended People Are Less Productive, Bad Employees

A study conducted by a Professor at San Diego State University has discovered that people who are easily offended make terrible employees because they never get anything done.

The study, conducted by Dr. Jeremy Berneth (WT – actually, Bernerth), involved asking almost 400 employees, aged 25.9 on average, across seven US colleges about different events that have recently gotten “substantial media attention”.

The study notes that the events consisted of “17 items developed to assess the proclivity to be offended, eight moral outrage items, 11 microagression items and nine political correctness items.”

It noted that some people have a high “proclivity to be offended” (PTBO), which the study describes as “a state-like tendency to be sensitive to customarily innocuous societal events and traditions,” for example “playing of the United States’ National Anthem.”

Those with a high PTBO have a “tendency to view an array of events and/or traditions as offensive.”

They also “are likely to feel that social events or traditions to which they take offense also violate moral or equitable standards,” the study notes.

Basically, they’re easily triggered by anything.

Now, you may be wondering if this is satire. I can’t find anything that says it is. Summit News doesn’t seem to do satire like the Onion or Babylon Bee. Further, there is an actual Jeremy Berneth at San Diego State. Further, the above story (which has much more, make sure to read it) has an embed of said study via SCRIBD. It’s not a study that someone just made up to be satire, as it’s 10 pages.

The study also notes that the easily offended are less concerned with helping others, despite constantly engaging in virtual signalling to suggest that is their primary goal.

Shocking, eh?

It is funny, though, and just what you expect. And will surely make the easily Offended Offended.
