It’s Your Fault If Someone Yells At You
I knew a massively successful guy who had a horrible ritual. When he’d get angry, he’d call three of his subordinates, one-by-one, and yell at them.
That outburst (or dump) would make him feel better and then he’d focus on his work.
I initially felt quite embarrassed when I saw those guys getting humiliated like that. Then it happened again. and again. and again.
