It isn’t power that creates authority

  • rats won’t play with other rats that don’t play fair
  • the most powerful, ruthless chimp is not the chip that gets authority in the troop, it’s actually the chip that can embody reciprocal relationships with others including females and infants. The ruthless chimps get torn apart almost immediately when they show weakness
  • It’s harder to be the boss than to be the underling, it’s more stressful.
