Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate revenge feelings, or attitudes of "getting even" and the effects these attitudes have on the operation of an organization, particularly a public school organization. The principle methodology of this investigation is empirical and involves organizations and incidents that in many cases have little to do with education directly. The theory here is that school business is people business, and human nature does not change with occupations. The study is based in part upon the assumption that self-awareness is basic to an understanding of others, that interpretation and application of the concepts of others are affected by one's personal perceptions of his own experiences. Cooperation demands understanding and if people realistically expect to reach goals that have been set, they have no choice but to cooperate and work together.
