[eng:]social climber

mungkin ada yang bertanya-tanya, apa itu yah social climber ?…menurut Wikipedia:

A social climber is someone who seeks social prominence by obsequious behavior.

hmm..mungkin ada pertanyaan lanjutan, kalo’ obsequious itu apa dong?

The word “obsequious” is used to describe someone who is almost pathetically eager to follow, obey, and serve. It is often used in a pejorative way, suggesting that someone has rather slavish tendencies which are obnoxious and sometimes embarrassing. Most people make an effort to avoid being obsequious, finding ways to express compliance which are more subtle and less intense than obsequiousness, although in some cultures this servile attitude is considered socially acceptable

Many people associate excessive flattering, fawning, and bootlicking with modern day obsequiousness. The implication is that someone is abasing him or herself to please someone else, and in many cultures people who tolerate obsequious behavior are also viewed negatively. Rather than simply being polite, submissive, and happy to serve, someone who is obsequious crosses the line, demonstrating behavior which can be distasteful in its intensity.


whoaa…prilaku ini ternyata biasa terjadi di kantor-kantor atau mungkin di rumah-rumah…nah, apakah anda seorang social climber  ?…jangan dong…begaul biasa aja..ok!
