by Barbara Safani - Nov, 2011

Girls are given dolls to play with and boys trucks. Around the home, girls are typically given the tasks of washing the dishes and cleaning the house, while boys mow the lawn and change oil in the car. Traditional gender roles often carry over in...

  Do You Talk About Yourself Too Much at Work?
by Alexandra Levit - Nov, 2011
Some people start out just wanting to share quality information, and so others listen to them in order to learn and reap of the benefit of the experience and knowledge. Unfortunately, many of these same people become addicted to the attention paid to them, and they gradually become narcissistic.
