EY's 'Corporate Out of Touch Types' Explained, and Why They Exist
It's simple really. No one wants to be somebody's fake ass lap dog. Except for narcissists and sociopaths who are trying to get ahead. The types who are good at schmoozing and socializing, but suck at creativity.

Unemployed Negativity

Quote:The particular subjective demands of emotional labor is that it is not enough to simply do the required work, have the particular "pieces of flair, " but one must desire to do so, to express oneself through labor. As Paolo Virno argues as labor is defined more and more as a set of abstract capacities, the ability to communicate and interact, rather than concrete skills, particular types of knowledge, then it increasingly becomes this abstract capacity that is the defining characteristic of the job. The qualifications for these jobs are increasingly expressed in subjective terms defining character and personality. Virno traces this engagement through the changing vicissitudes of the term professional. No longer limited to the "professions," of lawyer, doctor, or teacher, all involving the acquisition of specialized knowledge the word "professional" increasingly designates a set of attitudes, habits, or values. All sorts of jobs and employment now require a "professional appearance" or "attitude." As Virno writes, “Professionality on the other hand is seen as a subjective property, a form of know-how inseparable from the individual person; it is a sum of knowledges, experiences, attitudes, and a certain sensibility.”

A further examination of the uses and valances of the term "professional" reveals a different side to this subjective property. At the same time that one must engage one's emotional and intellectual capacities at work one must do so in a way that is detached, impersonal. The phrase "be professional" is used both against those who demonstrate too much emotion, showing anger or sadness on the job, and those who do not show the proper emotional commitment and dedication, remaining indifferent or alienated. In Fight Club for example we see the opposite side of the professional, not the dedicated and impassioned commitment, but the impersonal detachment, the ability to see a job as just a job. This is illustrated in a scene where the narrator (Edward Norton) explains his job to a fellow passenger. He is aware of the ethical monstrosity of what he is describing, but absolutely indifferent to it. His calm indifference is his professionalism.

the corporate drones pretend to be hip.

they eat the hipster spots and pretend to like the arts or the underground music scene

but they actually don't understand it or enjoy any of it

in addition, they have no opinions. it's a fake kind of cool

that is actually why I think people are attracted to the new breed of rapper like XXXtentacion of Tekashi69

they represent a catharsis that is diametrically opposed to the corporate "fake hipster" drone

the new ads from the tech companies are the living embodiment of fake hipness.

Real hipness depends on not giving a fuck about what others think.

it also depends on the public to give them that leeway.. to let them be artists. But now artists are 100% accountable for their "corporate image" as corporations are the new Monarchs who subsidize and patronize the arts.

I go to europe and see all these artists being funded by the government. these drones actually think they are fighting the power.

I tell them if you were actually fighting the power, why would the power fund you?

they are mind bottled

full spectrum dominance. that is the name of the game.

it used to be that you were punished for your actions.

you beat someone's ass, you got caught with drugs on you, DUI etc.

now the above won't ruin your career.. but thinking and saying the wrong things will.

increasingly you are punished for your thoughts.

they already have everyone under FULL PHYSICAL CONTROL.. now they are going after SOULS.

"this is a battle for souls"

the corporate environment is one of the most effective soul sucking mechanisms. because unlike a menial job, it's not just a job. it's a lifestyle. it's the group events over the weekend. it's the "company's values" it's supporting the SJW causes. how can anyone be authentic when you can't separate your job from your real self?

Nothing will change in the US unless free speech is protected from your livelihood.

if they can take away your likelihood for railing against immigration or supporting Trump, there effectively is no free speech.

Also with such few corporations controlling the vast majority of jobs, you will get essentially blackballed if you hold the wrong thoughts.

i'm not talking about free speech on the job, but free speech outside the job.

you can be a corporate drone doing engineering work or programming, but in your life OUTSIDE of work you should be free to be whoever you want to be and hold whatever political opinion.

yep. corporate drones. entire life on display on social-media.

every statement under a microscope and scrutinized.

you either assimilate, censor your political opinion or you're left out in the cold.

the thing about americans, and especially caucasoid americans is that they love being part of the machine.

they love identifying with something bigger. they like WINNERS and what is popular.

I think it's a remnant of Protestantism or Christianity. Believe in something outside of yourself.

"save the world"

instead of "saving souls" which was the mandate of the Church.. it's now saving the world through "SJW liberalism"

the independent guy who owns his own gas station making 300K+ a year is looked down upon.

americans actually do not value independence. they like the corporate system because there are clear objectives like sports. Climb the ladder.

when you're independent the goals aren't as clear.

It's all a charade, a rather empty existence in return for executive salary and some lurks and perks.

I did it for many years and I grew to despise the parasitic culture.

RE: EY's 'Corporate Out of Touch Types' Explained, and Why They Exist
thanks.

I've been discovering that this concept is true more than ever, since I've re-entered the workforce from a two year hiatus, 100 lbs. lighter, and in the best shape of my life.

There is a lot of pressure on a man to be at peak performance. There isn't too much pressure at my work to be fake since I work for a mom & pop, but it becomes tempting, and were up against competition pushing the envelope to be fake corporate drones.
