What do you think of this?
I don't think so it is a personality thing.
That shit can rub off on you.
Yep. Typically, you're about as good as the five people closest to you.
Have an opinion?
Only if you let those people influence you
How do you prevent it?
Be yourself at all times. And avoid behaving like they do
You either blend in or quit. Or you go insane and come back to work with a flamethrower.
