People are naturally curious about one another and gossip provides an opportunity for people to bond. Most people gossip as a way of sharing without intent to harm; however, speaking words that diminish the worth of a coworker not present in the conversation is harmful gossip. In fact, slander is used to destroy people's reputations. Malicious gossip is expressed with a deliberate desire to do harm. People spread malicious gossip because they lack power and want to establish an identity. But this type of gossip does not increase self-esteem and does not make one feel more in control.
