Fundamental to a conceptual understanding of the personnel function, is the assumptions which one makes about man. Whatever approaches are developed towards people in work organizations must have a bearing on one's concept of man. If for instance one views man as inherently lazy and stupid one's action will mirror this belief. There are those who believe that particular species of mankind are more stupid than others, and whether those species are defined by sex, race or color, such a belief must have its manifestation in overt acts.
