The question is about Edgar Allan Poe's "Pit and Pendulum". The story is about the survivor of Spanish Inquisition which he narrates of the tortures from a pit. The protagonist investigates the pit in order to escape and for that reason he uses the knife and piece of his clothing to measure the size of the pit. Poe creates a man of principle with this story amidst the horrors of the pit. Even though the narrator becomes subjected to all of these difficulties, his desire to survive makes him to be rescued.

Explanation: The Objectives
Agreeableness and emotional stability show strong relationships to leadership
Organizations need strong leadership and strong management for optimal effectiveness. We need leaders to challenge the statusâ€‹ quo, create visions of theâ€‹ future, and inspire organizational members to achieve the visions. We also need nonleaders to formulate detailedâ€‹ plans, create efficient organizationalâ€‹ structures, and overseeâ€‹ day-to-day operations.
Throughout history, strong leadersÃ¢â‚¬â€Buddha, Napoleon, Mao, Churchill, Roosevelt, ReaganÃ¢â‚¬â€have been described in terms of their traits. Trait theories of leadership thus focus on personal qualities and characteristics. We recognize leaders like South AfricaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Nelson Mandela, Virgin Group CEO Richard Branson, Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, and American Express chairman Ken Chenault as charismatic, enthusiastic, and courageous. The search for personality, social, physical, or intellectual attributes that differentiate leaders from nonleaders goes back to the earliest stages of leadership research. Early research efforts at isolating leadership traits resulted in a number of dead ends. A review in the late 1960s of 20 different studies identified nearly 80 leadership traits, but only 5 were common to 4 or more of the investigations.3 By the 1990s, after numerous studies and analyses, about the best we could say was that most leaders Ã¢â‚¬Å"are not like other people,Ã¢â‚¬ but the particular traits that characterized them varied a great deal from review to review.4 It was a pretty confusing state of affairs. A breakthrough, of sorts, came when researchers began organizing traits around the Big Five personality framework (see Chapter 5).5 Most of the dozens of traits in various leadership reviews fit under one of the Big Five (ambition and energy are part of extraversion, for instance), giving strong support to traits as predictors of leadership. The personal qualities and characteristics of Richard Branson, chairman of Virgin Group, make him a great leader. Branson is described as fun-loving, sensitive to the needs of others, hard working, innovative, charismatic, enthusiastic, energetic, decisive, and risk taking. These traits helped the British entrepreneur build one of the most recognized and respected brands in the world for products and services in the business areas of travel, entertainment, and lifestyle. Jason Kempin/FilmMagic/Getty Images, Inc. A comprehensive review of the leadership literature, when organized around the Big Five, has found extraversion to be the most important trait of effective leaders6 but more strongly related to leader emergence than to leader effectiveness. Sociable and dominant people are more likely to assert themselves in group situations, but leaders need to make sure theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re not too assertiveÃ¢â‚¬â€one study found leaders who scored very high on assertiveness were less effective than those who were moderately high.7 Unlike agreeableness and emotional stability, conscientiousness and openness to experience also showed strong relationships to leadership, though not quite as strong as extraversion. Overall, the trait approach does have something to offer. Leaders who like being around people and are able to assert themselves (extraverted), disciplined and able to keep commitments they make (conscientious), and creative and flexible (open) do have an apparent advantage when it comes to leadership, suggesting good leaders do have key traits in common. One reason is that conscientiousness and extraversion are positively related to leadersÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ self-efficacy, which explained most of the variance in subordinatesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ ratings of leader performance.8 People are more likely to follow someone who is confident sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going in the right direction. Another trait that may indicate effective leadership is emotional intelligence (EI), discussed in Chapter 4. Advocates of EI argue that without it, a person can have outstanding training, a highly analytical mind, a compelling vision, and an endless supply of terrific ideas but still not make a great leader. This may be especially true as individuals move up in an organization
