  As pressure increases, there is tendency to adopt a zero sum view of the world – if someone else gains, I necessarily must lose.    The masculine archetype is built upon a certain set of beliefs : We can't afford to get tied down in long-term relationships - our focus is on short-term transactions (“battles”) where the goal is to get as much as possible out of each transaction and to treat each transaction as an independent event – buy low, sell high and move on.
