Theory X will Always Prevail Cecause it is Innate in Man
R. Angel As long as an individual or group of individuals exists, Theory X will prevail because we cannot uproot the source of unpleasant behavior and attitude, which is innate, in man. The challenge is to accept and understand the condition/s of every human person here and now.
Theory X innate?
Hein I disagree with R. Angel. The attitudes and/or behavior of BOTH theory X and Theory Y could be innate to some extent for certain people. But more importantly, I think we behave in a theory X way in certain circumstances or in certain periods in our live, while in other circumstances or periods we may operate in a Theory Y mode. So rather then only innate, our behavior is controlled by the circumstances and timeframe.
