While the positive impact of positive role-models have been deeply investigated in the literature, the study of the impact of negative role-models is somewhat controversial. To investigate the positive impact of negative role-models, the key factors involved in the influence of role-models are presented and discussed through a set of case studies. Recommendations to address problematic cases are also presented. (Less)
