Carter-Scott, C. (1991).  The Corporate Negaholic: How to Deal Successfully With Negative Colleagues, Managers and Corporations.
"The Walking Wounded does just what is required, tries not to make waves, stays out of the way, and behaves himself, all the while living a mouse-like existence. Doing whatever he can not to be noticed, either because of a past incident, a physical handicap, an emotional trauma, a mental impairment, insecurity, fear of people, or chronic shyness, he stays out of the line of fire and gets the job done without attracting attention. He has little to no ambition in life, since his spark was snuffed out long ago." (p. 29)
