  • Power's Punishing Impact: Power Linked to Tendency to Punish Harshly

    I thought this was interesting. Helps explain why people seems to get wackyier as they move up in the world.

    In the public sector, using the U.S. Congress as an example -- Wiltermuth pointed to the dead certainty in which elected officials often make their case. "You ask yourself, 'How can they talk about these complex issues in such black and white terms?' The short attention spans of the media and their constituencies may explain some of it, but it may also be that politicians are so powerful that they may actually see issues in black-and-white terms more than the rest of us do."

    Any metaphor will tear if stretched over too much reality.
