Like some other posters have said, birds of the same feather flock together, so if they are mean spirited, lacking in empathy, and passive aggerssive then they will all be 'cool' with each other's mean behaviors and attitudes.

In the work place the 'evil' manager is going to hire 'evil' people that bully, roll eyes, make faces, refuse to communicate, play mind games, find scapegoats, play people against each other, etc. That is all fine and dandy in their work environment.

It isn't just the typical a-hole, who brags about himself and speaks in a bossy tone of voice. Most people can get over that. I can get over that. It's the other constant stuff that can be major problems too and it is a whole other ballgame of problems vs. the office a-hole that is easy to just get over and win him over etc.

Have you ever sat down with someone who was basically just plain mean and uncommunicative and tried to get inside their head? What did they say?
I have known mean, uncommunicative people. These kind of people are often bitter people with chips on their shoulders. We should feel sorry for them really. I would much rather be Happy!!!! Live in the sunshine, why skulk in the shadows with Mr/Mrs miseryguts?!!!
