To predict general behaviors, we look at David who has worked for 18 years in Hoffman's Hardware Store. David lias been informed that, because of a bushiess decline, Mr. Hoffman must cut his workforce and that David may lose his job. How can we predict David's subsequent behavior? Will he beg Mr. Hoffman to let him remain with the company? Will he strike out in violence against the store or Mr. Hoffman? Will he displace his anger and act aggressively toward his wife or children? Will he beghi drinking heavily and become apathetic toward searching for a new job? Will he immediately and constructively begin looking for another position?
