The psychology of the “Mad Men” TV show

Here is a link to part 1 of what will be a two-part article from the Daily Beast about the Emmy-nominated episode this past season where one of the principle female leads agrees to sleep with a representative of a potential major client for the ad agency. If she does, she gets to be a partner. The interview about the episode is a fascinating character study that I would say shows exceptional subtlety in terms of insight into human nature. It’s well worth a read.
