  5. 5. CONFIDENCE• Obeying another to get something you want• In your best self-interest• Reciprocity “...Is that which depends for its validity upon confidence of him with whom it prevails, and is where, not having myself acquired such information as to enable me to form a judicious opinion, I yield a greater or less degree of deference to the known sentiment and decision of another.”
  6. 6. COERCION • Force used for compliancy (good or bad) • Reward or Punishment • Obeying another‟s conviction --TURNS US INTO ANIMALS!--“Authority in the last of the three senses alluded to, is where a man, inissuing his precept, does not deliver that which may be neglected withimpunity; but his requisition is attended with a sanction, and the violationof it will be followed with a penalty.”
