1. I disagree with this statement. Sometimes this is the complete opposite. I have found and observed for myself that people that are higher up on the Hierarchy of needs is more unethical than those or are lower on the Hierarchy. I recently watched a video on YouTube, where a young man conducted a study of his own in a major city. He attached dollar bills all over his suit, and as people walked by, the young gentleman encouraged passerby’s to “only take what you need.” The majority of the time people dressed in suits and carrying briefcases or women carrying expensive brands of purses walked by and greedily took every dollar they could possibly take from this man’s suit. On the contrary, there was a couple of instances where homeless individuals…show more content…
I disagree with this statement. Just because an individual may be down on their luck for an extended period of time for any reason and this causes them to go hungry, thirsty, or even completely homeless with no place to sleep in the dead of winter, this does not mean that the individual does not need a friend to talk to.

My feelings are impartial on this statement. As I stated in question 1, my personal opinion is that as an individual climbs the Hierarchy, that person also becomes more unethical. For instance, Hollywood stars seem to be on top of the Hierarchy of needs, but how often are they in the news for their unethical behavior? I believe there is a fine line somewhere in-between, and if an individual is not careful they can cross that line. I do not necessarily believe that just because someone is on the top of the Hierarchy that they are automatically unethical, but I do believe they are more likely to be unethical than someone who is lower on the Hierarchy. 4. I disagree with this statement. Although I don’t believe that individuals in this age range should not be able to find a job, I disagree that they are the “best” people to employ. Even though an older individual may have more experience than someone younger, from a company’s standpoint, it would be hard to invest in an individual that may only have a few years left in the workforce than it would be to invest in someone that has many years until retirement. I believe that when it comes to learning a new task, the younger individual would be the better fit for the
