Indeed, Janie’s third husband is not hyper-masculine. He is a man who gives Janie the possibility to be herself, thus differentiating himself from the domineering men encountered until this point. Tea Cake is unafraid of venturing beyond the well-trodden path of “acceptable” masculine traits. He includes Janie in the men’s rituals of dominance by teaching her checkers and hunting, by cooking for her, and more importantly by offering her an escape from Eatonville and bringing her to the ’Glades. Nevertheless, even Tea Cake, perceived to be the “kindest” of Janie’s husbands, eventually feels internal pressure to assert his dominance over her, and is led to beat her due to his own insecurity: “Before the week was over he had whipped Janie.
It is obvious that lack of self-awareness results in big difficulties if it is not considered as a real problematic condition. By all means, this situation is a minus for a leader and can only be solved by training. Trained leaders are more self-aware as a result of productive process of learning.

Wilde utilizes the play as a criticism for the upper class, which demonstrates their ignorance towards ideas and situations that actually matter to the rest of British society. Further explaining Wilde’s aesthetic writing style, Ellmann focuses on how the characters’ foolish behavior portrays an honest interpretation of the upper class.

He’d tipped her” (Vonnegut 14) This quote shows the extent to which Dr. Felix Hoenikker was disconnected from reality because only a man so untied to reality would tip his own wife . One may think that this anecdote from Vonnegut is a fable, but Dr. Langmuir was said to have done the same exact thing to his own wife (Mental Floss). Moreover, Kurt Vonnegut wanted to use this piece of Dr. Langmuir’s life because if a scientist is so out of this world, then they should not have the power to destroy thousands of lives if they cannot even live their
