Our brain and our intelligence affect negative work behaviours.

How important is intelligence when it comes to negative workplace behaviours?

Research shows that IQ is strongly inversely correlated with the frequency of violence, theft, lying and other destructive behaviours.

Intelligence includes people’s numerical, verbal and abstract reasoning, also called their “general capability”. The lower it is, the more often they do bad things at work.

Cognitive ability is highly genetically determined, so much of our intelligence is determined at birth, but it can also be affected through usage.

The more we use our brains, the smarter we are and the less likely we are to misbehave in the workplace.
