Impatience and nonacceptance, a frequent cause of abuse

   Much of the abuse and mistreatment of one man by another comes 
   about through man not accepting his fellow man as he is.  Much 
   abuse and mistreatment takes place in the name of incompetence.  
   A superior regards a subordinate as incompetent, inept, stupid, 
   etc..  One thing that causes this is that man comes in, so to 
   speak, all kinds, shapes and sizes.  In other words, every man 
   has his own particular set of strengths and weaknesses, 
   abilities and inabilities, strong points and weak points.  Some 
   people are outgoing and gregarious.  Others are introverted.  
   Some are very conscientious, methodical and thorough.  Others 
   are unconscientious and unmethodical.  Some are very logical 
   and analytical.  Others are quite illogical and unanalytical.  
   But almost everyone has his good points as well as his bad 
   points.  And the problem is that everyone must eat and support 
   his family.  And jobs are hard to find.  And the job that one 
   finds may not be perfectly fitted to his personality and 
   abilities and strong points.  Nothing in this world ever works 
   out perfectly.  Some people find themselves better matched to 
   their jobs than other people do.  And few people are perfectly 
   matched to their jobs.  So if a boss is inclined to be 
   impatient and hard to please he is likely to find many 
   opportunities for his impatience.
