Interesting study but hasn't it already been proven?

http://www.gsb.stanford.edu/news/research/halevy_power_2011.html - about how there is an interaction between the authority provided to an individual by a job, and the perception of the status of that person.

This interaction especially correlates to the rule of bureaucracy that says "the more petty the status of a bureaucrat, the more arbitrary and obnoxious their use of the power that their job grants".
