What prompts one to bypass rules? Is it a reflection of one's character?It is almost a common sight when we are riding on a busy road to see motorists taking shortcuts to avoid traffic signals; sometimes they slow down their vehicle to ensure that they do not have to stop at a red signal. We also get to see people jumping signals just before the signal changes if there are no police personals around. Then there are people who might have been caught for traffic violations earlier but instead of correcting themselves or taking precautionary measures as advised tend to exhibit a tendency to avoid such police checking by either taking a deviation or speeding away thinking that the policemen have been cleverly hoodwinked. Another suitable example may be of some students who hide their mobile phones in their books to bypass a restriction by the parents that they should not be using mobiles while studying. These are just examples. We can cite many such instances where people resort to different means to bypass orders/ restrictions or to ensure that they do what they want despite such orders or restrictions.
Why do you think some people do so? Can it be said to be a part of their character? What might be the reason behind such acts? Would it be to satisfy their ego or interest or can it also be that they derive some pleasure by bypassing?
Let us analyze this trait socially and psychologically and have a serious discussion on the subject.
