I call it Weenie Behavior, and it's what you see when a person is afraid and deals with his or her fear by putting down, boxing in and trying to squash other people. Weenies enact and enforce the stupid rules and policies that I write about all the time. Rules reinforce the fear of new thinking or stepping outside the lines that fearless people do naturally. A new idea might threaten a weenie's place in the world.

You will hear people say "You don't know much about business, do you?They will put you down and try to get you to shut up.There is only one reason why a person would act this way, and it's important for you to know the reason.
