I am convinced that those of us who are intelligent and competent are at a disadvantage
Seriously, we are all expected to be patient with people who take extra time to understand things and accomplish things. If we don't, we aren't compassionate or friendly or whatever. We aren't supposed to say anything when they take all day to accomplish anything. HOWEVER, when I breeze through MY work and am caught up and waiting for the next "wave" of work, I am informed that it looks bad for me to not be doing anything. It looks like I'm wasting time. Um, I'm doing the SAME AMOUNT OF WORK AS EVERYONE ELSE and am more organized than most of you too. It's not my fault you are slow and you take forever to get your work done. And NO, I am not going to volunteer to take anyone else's work just because I'm caught up on mine. I'm sick of hearing, "You're really smart so you should help everyone else." Don't penalize me and give me more work because I'm competent.
