Submission + - Humans a are "hard-wired" for hierarchy? (go.com)

solidex writes: "ABC News is reporting a series of experiments done by scientists that shows humans are "hard-wired" for social hierarchy; however, the article seems to suggest that the respective parts of the brain that deal with hierarchies do not create social hierarchies, but rather that they "prime" humans to respond to hierarchies. But what isn't clear is whether this is a natural feature of the brain or the result of years of being taught to act this way. http://abcnews.go.com/Health/MindMoodNews/story?id=4712859&page=1"
