As in the analysis of deviant behavior in the two preceding chapters, functional theory is utilized in the analysis of bureaucratic structure and personality in Chapter VIII.  Again, I assume that the structure constrains individuals variously situated within it to develop cultural emphasis, social patterns and psychological bents.  And once again, I assume that this holds true for social deviations and dysfunctions as it does for social conformity and functions.  Deviations are not necessarily dysfunctional for a social system, as we have seen, any more than conformity is necessarily functional (1968, p. 177).
