Chapter 5 - Power
THIS CHAPTER WILL DISCUSS 1. Theories that are relevant to the concept of power. 2. The "dimensions" of power, and research showing how these dimensions work. 3. Theories concerning how coalitions can form within groups. 4. The ways in which communication can affect people's judgments about power. 5. How beliefs about gender and race influence power, and ways to counteract these beliefs.

The Trap of Teaching People How to Treat You
Have you ever heard the phrase "you teach people how to treat you?" It's a common idea that many people believe to be true. The theory is that if you allow people to treat you poorly, they will continue to do so because you have taught them that it's okay. But here's the thing: this idea is a trap. It can keep you stuck in toxic relationships for far too long, and it can cause you to take responsibility for other people's behavior. The truth is that you cannot teach people how to treat you. You can set boundaries and communicate your needs, but ultimately, it's up to the other person to decide how they will treat you. I fell into this trap myself. I had toxic siblings who treated me poorly, and I believed that if I could just teach them how to treat me with respect, everything would be okay. But the more I tried to teach them, the worse things got. I realized that I was taking responsibility for their behavior. I was blaming myself for not being able to teach them how to be kind and respectful. But the truth is that it wasn't my responsibility to teach them. They were adults, and they were responsible for their own behavior. When I finally let go of the idea that I could teach them how to treat me, things started to shift. I set boundaries and communicated my needs, but I didn't try to teach them anything. I simply observed how they treated me and decided whether or not I wanted to continue the relationship. This is the key: observe how people treat you and allow that to teach you whether or not they are healthy and can stay in your life. If someone consistently treats you poorly, it's time to reevaluate the relationship. Setting boundaries is important, but it's not the same as teaching people how to behave. Your boundaries are for you, and they let others know what you will and will not tolerate. But you cannot control how others will behave, and you cannot force them to treat you with respect. The trap of teaching people how to treat you can also lead to a never-ending cycle of trying to teach someone a different way to behave. You may think that if you just find the right words or the right approach, the other person will finally understand and change their behavior. But in reality, this rarely works. People change when they are ready to change. It's not up to you to force them to change, and it's not your responsibility to teach them how to behave. The only thing you can control is how you respond to their behavior. If you find yourself in a toxic relationship, it's important to remember that you cannot teach the other person how to treat you. You can set boundaries and communicate your needs, but ultimately, it's up to the other person to decide how they will behave. The trap of teaching people how to treat you is a common one, but it's important to recognize it and avoid it. Instead, focus on observing how people treat you and making decisions based on that. It's not your responsibility to teach anyone how to behave, but it is your responsibility to take care of yourself and make decisions that are in your best interest.

Are animals better than plants?
Animals are awesome! They can communicate and form social bonds, while plants are just, well, plants. Animals can move, hunt, and play, making them more dynamic and interesting than plants that just sit there. Sure, plants are cool and provide us with oxygen, but animals are just on another level. If you ask me, animals are definitely better than plants!

Are chicken fish?
I am convinced that chickens do indeed qualify as fish. The similarities in their physical characteristics, culinary use, and cultural classifications cannot be ignored. For example, both chickens and fish are animals that lay eggs, have a streamlined body shape, and possess a swim bladder. Additionally, chickens are often prepared and consumed in similar ways to fish and have been historically classified as a type of fish in some cultures.

Majority opinion being wrong and unjust is not new. Our democratic history is littered with examples of majority opinions being not just wrong, but the very opposite of democracy when those opinions were shaped into laws. Listen carefully to the volumes of promises and plans about to be delivered; hear what the politicians are saying. Think for yourself. And never forget that most of the great social changes in our lives have been brought about only when minority movements forced sheeplike majorities to listen.

Is it possible to use the credits that were already used for one degree again for a second degree? I thought this was prohibited?

Because the concept with different servers is similar of what Discord is doing
