You might think that gossiping is a rare habit. Still, it’s much more prevalent in our conversations than you might think. In fact, a study by Robbins and Karan found that 14% of our conversation is devoted to gossip! But it gets a lot worse if you focus on the workplace. Even though many people think gossiping differs from gender to gender, that might not be the case at all.
A different study by Grosser found that around 90% of people at work gossip about their colleagues, and it’s actually quite a normal part of most people’s work routine! However, don’t think it’s just women who do this. In fact, men tend to gossip twice as much as women do. I’m sure this guy has gossiped once or twice in his life!
