:: Have you ever heard of the "Boss Effect?" ::

A new experiment released during the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience in New Orleans tells you when and to whom we smile in a working context and what it tells about us. Between culture and brain research discover more here

"It is the newest insight into what scientists studying culture and the brain call the "boss effect," in which the social pressure of status and power affects our neurobiology."

 "This "boss effect" can vary by national culture. Chinese workers reacted fastest to a picture of their direct supervisor—but only if the boss had the power to give them a negative job evaluation, according to a study last year by Dr. Liew
and colleagues at the University of Southern California and Peking University.

By contrast, U.S. test subjects reacted most quickly to a supervisor whom they perceived as more socially influential."
