The research on human behavior showed that the “concepts” people have in mind define their attitude in a specific field. This discovery allows forecasting people’s actions based on knowing the concepts they use and inferring the concepts they have based on their actions.
Concepts drive actions when individuals are fully adapted in an environment; for example a person who is aware of her/his concept of “leadership” and this role is fully adapted to the environment
Concepts catalyze actions when the leadership concept of the individual is functionally above the standards of the environment. In this case a leader that works within the standards is necessary to work as a driver of the actions of a group.
Concepts work as gravitational forces of behavior if the leadership concept the individual has is dysfunctional in an environment but the individual wants to adapt to the context. This implies that the change the individual wants to do is inhibited by the concept he has.
That is why becoming aware of the concept the individual has and its functionality increases her/his power.
