Theory #5: Max Weber

"The powerful personality does not manifest itself by trying to give everything a 'personal touch' at every possible opportunity.  The generation which is now growing up should, above all, again become used to the thought that 'being a personality' is something that cannot be deliberately striven for and that there is only one way by which it can (perhaps!) be achieved: namely, the whole-hearted devotion to a "task" whatever it (and its derivative 'demands of the hour') may be.  It is poor taste to mix personal questions with specialized factual analyses."
