    Study: Breaking rules makes you seem powerful

    Breaking rules makes you seem powerful

    Los Angeles, CA (May 18, 2011) When people have power, they act the part. Powerful people smile less, interrupt others, and speak in a louder voice. When people do not respect the basic rules of social behavior, they lead others to believe that they have power, according to a study in the current Social Psychological and Personality Science (published by SAGE).

    People with power have a very different experience of the world than people without it. The powerful have fewer rules to follow, and they live in environments of money, knowledge and support. People without power live with threats of punishment and firm limits according to the research team lead by Gerben Van Kleef of the University of Amsterdam.
    This makes a lot of sense, have never looked at it this way.

    Cool way of looking at it. It could also be said that breaking the rules makes you see the truth.
