No one likes the nice guy

A WSU study finds that being helpful doesn't alway help.
Parks and Stone found that unselfish colleagues come to be resented because they "raise the bar" for what is expected of everyone. As a result, workers feel the new standard will make everyone else look bad.

Could this help explain what conservatives don't like about liberals? They set the bar just too damn high.
