Dealing with rude behavior at work makes people more likely to perceive rudeness in later interactions, a new study shows. And that perception makes them more likely to be impolite in return, spreading rudeness like a virus. “When you experience rudeness, it makes rudeness more noticeable,” says lead author Trevor Foulk, a doctoral student in management at the University of Florida’s Warrington College of Business Administration. “You’ll see more rudeness even if it’s not there.” The findings, published in the Journal of Applied Psychology, provide the first evidence that everyday impoliteness spreads in the workplace.

Rudeness anywhere, spreads like a virus.
