But most of the time, she went to the office and quietly lived with the congestion and discomfort of her seasonal allergies. “Sometimes, it’s like you wouldn’t mind if your head rolled off your body,” says the 31-year-old engineer, who spends most of her day working with 3-D models on a computer screen. “You feel clogged up and hazy. The pressure makes you want to close your eyes. Woody Allen once said that 80% of success in life can be attributed to simply showing up. Unlike absenteeism, presenteeism isn’t always apparent.

Why The Myers-Briggs Personality Test Is Misleading, Inaccurate, And Unscientific

It’s taken by more than 2.5 million people a year. A full 89 of the Fortune 100 companies use it. The test promises to tell you which of the 16 personality “types” yours most resembles, slotted along a range of behavioural binaries.

Empowering communications globally

Below, the author outlines how mindfulness can be beneficial in the work environment and in the organisational context. Mindlessness at work has become a global touchstone of mockery, and entertainers have enchanted audiences worldwide with comedies featuring mindless managers (including ‘The Office; or ‘Office Space’). Steve Carrell, playing the role of Michael Scott as Regional Manager of a Dunder-Mifflin branch in Scranton, PA epitomises mindless behavior, which is characterised by a reliance on old, often outdated categories and a reduced awareness of one’s social and physical world.

Mindlessness vs. Mindfulness Individual and Organisational perspectives Mindfulness has been shown to affect a plethora of cognitive, affective and behavioral outcomes on the individual level. Mindfulness Measurement.
