    How so? Pecking order of women or pecking order of all church members?

    This quote was in the article “The controversial child is socially savvy. They are good resource controllers, socially skilled, popular, conscientious, socially integrated, and yet among the most aggressive, dominant and arrogant children in the peer group.”

    I think the LDS church attracts certain personality types. The above quote made me think of the guys who become leaders in the LDS church.

    I see your point now. Although, it seems like people with this personality type become leaders in all types of organizations, businesses, and groups. Do you really think Donald Trump would be a nice person to hang out with and have a beer at the local bar?

    yeah, good point. These personality features are not unique to the LDS church, and these characteristics apply to leaders throughout most organizations…
