When I am out and about and I have my hands full -- with a purse, or with my phone and wallet because my pants pocket is too small-- I often feel like a subordinate instead of a leader. This feeling is exacerbated if I am with people whose hands are empty.
On the other hand, if someone else is carrying the bags, I feel more confident and more in charge.
Is there science behind this, or am I crazy? Can this be tested?
Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
