12 Things Successful People Never Reveal About Themselves at Work

“You can’t build a strong professional network if you don’t open up to your colleagues; but doing so is tricky, because revealing the wrong things can have a devastating effect on your career.

Sharing the right aspects of yourself in the right ways is an art form. Disclosures that feel like relationship builders in the moment can wind up as obvious no-nos with hindsight.

The trick is to catch yourself before you cross that line, because once you share something, there is no going back.

TalentSmart has tested more than a million people and found that the upper echelons of top performance are filled with people who are high in emotional intelligence (90% of top performers, to be exact). Emotionally intelligent people are adept at reading others, and this shows them what they should and shouldn’t reveal about themselves at work.

The following list contains the 12 most common things people reveal that send their careers careening in the wrong direction.

1. That They Hate Their Job …

2. That They Think Someone Is Incompetent …

3. How Much Money They Make …

4. Their Political and Religious Beliefs …

5. What They Do on Facebook …

6. What They Do in the Bedroom …

7. What They Think Someone Else Does in the Bedroom …

8. That They’re After Somebody Else’s Job …

9. How Wild They Used To Be in College …

10. How Intoxicated They Like to Get …

11. An Offensive Joke …

12. That They Are Job Hunting …”
