Effects of reading articles written by an angry person
Their anger spreads to you. There is a similar effect on you when someone says something sarcastic to you.
In both situations, you feel hurt and you react.
With articles, a part of you may identify with the message that the writer is talking about. However, a part of their rage ends up in you. Blog posts where people talk about their anger, traps rage and people just end up getting angrier.
I really wonder what platforms like twitter do to you... found this article that says:
“If you have different contrasting emotions, one after the other, you become desensitized to experiencing any one of them fully,” ... "Our brain was not designed, nor did it evolve, to experience so many things quickly in a row.”
I would add that it will also depend on what a promotion meant to you, as well. Some people welcome this, others may not as it can also push people into areas when they do not feel ready to go into. Other times, it could also mean leaving areas that excite people ~ example, as a technical specialist ~ to an area that some find mundane ~ example, management of others ~ despite having a perceived, higher status.
Realistically, people do need change to be able to grow in organizations and, to grow as an individual. The timing of the changes, also needs to suit the individual.
