I need a theory to explain the following scenario. Would you refer me to any theory or a body of literature, please?
Have you ever watched House, M.D, an American medical drama television series? If you watched it, you better know the protagonist, Dr.House, who is ultra-smart, solved unsolvable cases, and save many lives. You also know that he is a total jerk: he violates social norms, acts as deviance, lies to everyone, and sometimes harasses his employees.
The portrait of House, indeed, is not far from reality. We encountered many people like him in the modern world, especially at work.
So, my question: why do people give social permission for people like House to act as deviance and violate social norms, but for others, they are very strict in their rules and judgment? And is there any theoretical framework that that accounts for such peculiar behaviors?
If you need one more example, here is a slightly different one. If you are famous, you can say whatever you want and act as you wish, at least anecdotally suggested. However, if you are a novice in an area, your thoughts and opinions, which even they are precisely the same as the famous individual, might be censured? Why? And which theories can explain it?
