image The metaphor refers to a pot of crabs. Individually, the crabs could easily escape from the pot, but instead, they grab at each other in a useless "king of the hill" competition which prevents any from escaping and ensures their collective demise.[1][2] The analogy in human behavior is that members of a group will attempt to "pull down" (negate or diminish the importance of) any member who achieves success beyond the others, out of envy,[3]conspiracy or competitive feelings.

masarap kainin,, mahirap kasama,,

mahirap kasama yung crab na gumagawa ng kwento,, tsk tsk tsk,, buti sana kung lagi silang nahuhuli sa paninira nila,, mahirap kung maraming naniniwala sa kanila,,yung tipong na-threaten sa'yo kse nakita nya na alam mo yung mga hindi nya alam,, natakot na malaman ng management kaya inunahan na ng paninira sa'yo,, na kesyo mayabang ka o masama ugali mo,, all of a sudden, galit sa'yo lahat ng tao kse akala nila totoo yung paninira sa'yo,,

pag may kasama kang ganyan, magandang gawin e lalong pagbutihin ang trabaho mo,, makikita naman ng management kung ano ang totoo,,

tama ka Superbuy. sometimes when you are in the wrong place at the wrong time - check mate.

kung may time pa na pwede i-reverse, can continue with the job and its "stale-mate".

pero minsan pag di mo inasahan na may nan-checkmate sayo at ang travaho nila ay trabahohin ka, a psychological quicksand, lalo na pag hindi ka mahilig sa crab mentality politics
- pabulusok pabagsak. "inakup-arekup"

start again.

Ang sabi ng iba tunay daw na ibig sabihin ng crab mentality ay yung nauunang crab ay gustong ilabas lahat ng nasa loob ng basket pero dumadalas talaga ito kaya nalaglag ulit.

crab mentality is actually everywhere....kahit nga sa neighborhood may ganun. pag nakaka angat yung isa - todo intriga todo paninira to the point na pati yung mainline mo sa tubig shut off nila! hahaha. 

its prevalent indeed sa opisina. wish this mentality kunin na ni Lord para mapayapa na ang lahat.

Ang dami ng ganito lalo na pag-paakyat ka sa ladder ng work mo.  Ang gagaling nila makisama sa harap mo.  Pag malaki ang commission ko noon nililibre ko pa sila kasama pa ang partner nila, yun pala naiinggit. Pag kausap si boss kung ano-ano sinasabi. Ewan ko kung naniniwala si boss, pero I believe he was happy with my performance.  Dahil napuno ko ang room ng participants.  Minsan maigsi lang ang pasensya ko... bigla ako nag resign.  Hehehe.... de natauhan si boss.  Nalaman ko lang na ayaw nya ko mawala sa company dahil ni-re-re-hire nya ko. hehehe.

Sa mga active pa ang pagiging crab mentality... wag yan ang pagtuunan nyo.  Bagkus pagbutihin nyo ang trabaho, linangin ang kakayahan nyo para tumaas ang value hindi bumaba. hehehe
