Why Manager Are Dressed Up To The Nines

The idea to dress sumptuous when you prepare yourself to fight is not the belief that you will be better in the fight.
You prepare yourself for death, if that should be the result of the struggle. Every Indian wants to look as good as possible in case he meets the Great Spirit. Therefore, the magnificent clothes are put on when danger is at hand, be it a forthcoming battle, or whether it be disease or injury in peace time.

If I think that consistently further, it is clear why managers are so well dressed. They are always prepared for their death. Heart attacks, stock market crash and the tax inspection demand their victims, likewise such things as foundations in Liechtenstein internal restructuring and the eternal struggle of the departments, managers against managers or behind the scenes against behind the scenes. It is a tough business wherein our modern samurai warriors of business are living.

Some people dress to hide their true selves and sense of fear. other people dress in ways that reveal their personality, mood or who they desire to be. If you don't know yourself, your clothes may offer clues to your purpose.
