Alex Alonso, an industrial-organizational psychologist, decided to study petty behavior scientifically after his mentor of 10 years burned their relationship. An executive at the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), Alonso polled 15,000 HR professionals to determine the extent and level of pettiness within their workplaces. He provides a new theory of pettiness that describes the intensity of behavior and severity of outcomes, and offers wild, true stories of pettiness. Alonso also provides a useful checklist for recognizing petty behavior in yourself and others.
