Elton Mayo’s experiments at the General Electric Hawthorne plant, in Cicero, Illinois (Roethlisberger, Dickson & Wright, 1939), brought to bear that cognizance of being watched has an effect on behavior change. Krishna (Prabhupada, 2011) asserts that as the Supersoul He is seated in the heart region of everyone, witnessing our activities; and that profound statement has a positive impact on the ways we operate in life to a great degree. Those endowed with sufficient intelligence are conscious of being watched, and adjust their behavior for a positive change.
