I basically never think about hierarchies, social status etc. when I make decisions, I just think about the facts what the best solution is and how I can execute that plan. That's why all my bosses dislike me because they feel like I don't bow down enough to them. In certain tv shows hierarchies and how to navigate them is pretty much all the characters think about. I know that it's not realistic but I'm curious in real life how often do you change your decision based on who's involved in a situation?
