"Office Politics", " Organization Politics" and " Workplace Politics" all refer to the same activity of the individuals in an enterprise making constant and conscious efforts to gain influence, authority and easy rewards. There can not be any comparison among the incomparables and so is competition. Hence office politics prevail in peer groups. It is a calculated move, can be conspicuous or inconspicuous depending upon the situation and people involved, to gain an edge over others in the same group. If you are ignorant, automatically you will be cool and that's why Thomas Gray said " where ignorance is bliss, it is folly to be wise". But the problem arises, when you are aware of it and the situation would be like that of in between the deep sea and the devil.So, naturally one can not be impervious to office politics. If you like to be more in the damage-control mode, enjoy office politics but do not be a part of it.

Hi Pmon,
"Office Politics", " Organization Politics" and " Workplace Politics" is not same or similar in all the organization. That differs from organization to organization depending upon the habits, smartness, shrewdness and modus operandi of employees working in the organisation.
So, just watch the attitudes of employees, how they usually behave in different situations with or against each other. If they behave erratically with others, you may also not be immune from the effect of office politics. So, you should have the need be cautious, as due to their habits, they can behave in the similar manner with you also. So, adoption of cautious nature and devotion to your duty should be two of your guru mantras to keep yourself aside of the office politics. But still a few of such incidents may happen with you due to their being compelled by habits.
thank you all for your inputs.................................
