A. A college professor recruiting among his students

B. An army medical officer recruiting subjects among lower ranks

C. A physician recruiting his patients

D. An employer recruiting among persons who directly report to him.

A

Answer: C. A physician recruiting his patients

Deferential vulnerability is a situation where a person feels submissive or less when compared to another person as a result of gender, social class, or knowledge. So many people today tend to compare their religion, caste, social class, and education to others who are perceived higher in rank by society. A physician recruiting his patients is a good example of deferential vulnerability because doctors are considered with higher social ranks or levels when compared to patients.
