← Why Powerful People -- Many of Whom Take a Moral High Ground -- Don't Practice What They Preach

Maybe I misread, but I took the findings of this study to be saying, as reported, that power makes people less strict of their own behavior.

In other words, not only are the powerful hypocrites, but they are *even more* likely to be engaging in the "immoral" behavior than the rest of the population.
