January 18, 2013 | Happiness | A.McCarthy

The supervisors who punish them seem to be so absolutely sure that they are doing the right thing--they have a clear sense of purpose and there are no arguments to sway them. However, new research find that providing a sense of power to someone instills a black-and-white sense of right and wrong (especially wrong).
