Do not bend at all costs?
In the interplay with the media Steinbrück provided a passport-accurate copy of the former SPD chairman Kurt Beck. Even Peer Steinbrück wanted to remain as he was, not to be bend. These included tears as a reaction to the question of whether a person could be credible for the interests of socially disadvantaged people, if he could hardly take his Bundestag mandate and collect more than one million euros for lectures. This also includes the Stinkefinger on the title of the SZ magazine.
Good effect is rare chance, but mostly the result of hard work and good preparation. Kurt Beck and Peer Steinbrück wanted more, for themselves and for the country, but at the same time they did not want to be bend. Not only politicians, but also managers and well-known representatives of institutions are always subject to the error of being able to be authentic or even to have to.
The error Authenzität
Also not everyone realizes that authenticity in different fields of action means different. A politician who is perceived as an authentic politician should show different behaviors than a rock star. Hannelore Kraft is perceived as a consistently authentic person. The same applies to Daniela Katzenberger. And yet it would be strange if the two behaviors were too much overlapping.
Our search for authenticity represses the fact that every situation in life always means fulfilling - multi-faceted - role expectations. Currently at Company The goal is to achieve a fit with the corporate culture beyond the functional role. If that's true, then you're one of us, fulfilling the requirements that are needed for sympathy and closeness. Your true self has to grow into this role.
Master role-playing games perfectly
The FAZ shows us how better the example of the parliamentary deputy Michael Billen from Rhineland-Palatinate. Billen was the CDU man in the Nürburgring Investigation Committee, who obtained illegal access to sensitive information about the flimsy investors. He was right, but the road was wrong.
The CDU leadership then tried to force him out of the state parliament. Vain. In his constituency, he was re-elected directly into the county and enjoyed a great deal of independence. Timo Frasch describes everyday situations: "[...] he would have wanted to give himself different than he is - then he would have the blood sausage in a Tupperdose on the table at breakfast the next morning? Would he have left the bathroom door wide open when showering? And would he have come later with a short-sleeved black shirt, dark sunglasses and a neon-orange tie for any symbolic groundbreaking ceremony at Bitburg-Ehrdorf station? " However, he also pays a price: "He will be nothing more. He is aware of that, but he does not care. "
