Domineering people commonly believe that they are so good that they can avoid corruption and disintegration through the concentration of all power to dominate --- into their own hands, and/or into the hands of those few people whom they still trust. In keeping with the above beliefs --- domineering people see no good reason for having to put up with the complications and messiness of having to deal honestly with: 1. Cooperation with strange/unfamiliar people. 2. Complementary considerations. 3. Multiple and competing priorities. 4. Listening to people of differing perspectives. 5. Rules about honesty, civility and hospitality. 6. Rules about arrogance and self-righteousness. 7. Other people's rights to be honestly different. 8. Their own finitude, limits and imperfections. 9. Differing perspectives, ideals and values. 10. The possibility that they have made a mistake. The above pattern of beliefs/attitudes lead domineering people to think and behave in ways which undermine mutual understanding, balance, dialogue and cooperation --- and so domineering people aggravate contentiousness, conflicts, and violence. Their paradigm does not offer any effective ways to mitigate contentiousness, conflicts, or violence. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
