Here is a situation that will prove my point of view. Lets say I am a new employee in a company. Am doing my job and everything that I sign up for this job to do. Sudden my boss asked me to do something that his was required to do. Without any hesitation I will apply for his require because I simply obey a person with a higher position than me. Situations like this happen in any kind of company or ministry that has job ranks in it.
Another thing can happen is that if I am a person who is trying to get something or achieve something and I felt that I might need someone’s help to make it much easier for me. Simple I would try to find a person who works at that place with high rank position that I know and he will do it for me.
Some People use their high rank or power for their personal needs. For example I am a manager for a back branch. As any person if I wanted to get a new credit card or a new account I should go to the section for it. But as a manager for the bank by a one call I can have it with a mint unlike a regular customer will wait for 10 to 50 mint for that.
