Tattling is an informal conversation about the personal or private affairs of others. Also well known as gossip, is usually about other people's business. It can be fun to chit chat about others but no one likes it when they are the subject of tattling. There are so many people in the world who love to chat about the stories of others and latest rumors people love to talk about like dating marrying or divorcing etc. But don't trust everything you hear, because gossip is not always correct. Sometimes people say things from their own.

When a gossiper spreads the positive information about a person, their recipient may believe that the gossiper will also spread the positive information about them. This causes the gossiper's reward power to increase.



When a gossiper seems to have in depth knowledge of either the organization's values or about others in the work environment, their expert power becomes enhanced.
