If You Want People to Think You’re Powerful . . . Be as Rude as Possible

Well this sends a pretty horrible message. In a new study from the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands, researchers found that the best way to get people to respect you is . . . to act like an A-HOLE.

 

 

–In the study, participants would watch videos of people acting rudely . . . like yelling at a waiter or blowing off their coworkers . . . and videos of people in the same situations acting politely and respectfully.
