- One person walked in and gave himself a small raise, just to see what would happen. It was accepted and the new pay level showed up on his next paycheque.
- Another took a pay cut as she just didn't want to work that hard and felt a huge stress release of not having to live up to the expectations of the higher salary.
- Finally, one person, who was not a great performer, took a significant raise. However, once his salary was set at a level of what he thought he was worth, his level of performance improved significantly.
