    I found this to be pretty interesting, and I have to agree overall.



  • Instead of saying, "I can't believe that guy just cut me off! What a jerk!" they go with, "That guy just cut me off. I'm going to slow down a bit so there's no accident here. And I'm going to listen to my favorite song to get inspired.*

    WTF? I'm trying to picture Donald Trump listening to Celine Dion.

    That article sounds like the fantasy image of powerful people as created by a self-help guru who describes himself as an "Inspiration Designer". A large proportion of powerful people are psychopaths, crooks and scumbags. In many cases all three.

    Sorry. As you may be able to tell, I'm not a great believer in "The American Dream".

    I agree, powerful people get upset at people being rude just like anyone else.

    I didn't see that part of the article. Yeah, that I don't think I'll agree with.
