However, the organization does not always work that way. This is for sociologists to find out. They are finding out the real. o   Rhetorical vs Real “Hawthorne Effect” •   When peoples’ answers reflect more of those asking the question than what their actual answers are o   This can happen because people answer many questions just the way they think the questioners want to hear it Bureaucracy •   Tend to be large organizations •   Formal relationships & arrangements •   Lines of authority & hierarchy
