Because Nerrien had low status, Timothy treated her as if she had very high status. How come?

Status - income? Social? Racial?

Did Timothy treat her this way with good intent? Malicious intent?

Did Timothy know that she had low status? Is it relevant what status he had? High? Low?
Time and/or location relevant?
Nerrien = H/A/F? Timothy = H/A/M? Are their genders relevant?
Is their relationship relevant?
Did this happen once, i.e. in a special situation? Or did he generally treat her that way?

Nimue, you skipped this question: Time and/or location relevant?

Their relationship... Friends? Family? (Probably none of these two, I guess) Does she work for him? Is she a customer of some kind? Is he?

Occupations relevant?

does Timothy do this to gain a benefit? for himself? for someone else?
does he do it to prevent a disbenefit? for him? for someone else?
does he do it to increase his academic standing? to improve his publication record? to gain status in the eyes of his 'equals'?

does he intend to misinform someone?

is Nerrien someone who he supervises? is he responsible for her academic work?

the way he treated her as though she had high status.. just in one specific way? or in general?
did he ascribe a title to her that was higher than the one she actually had? or qualifications?

was the result of his action that she was able to do some of his work for him? is teaching relevant? is his relationship with other students relevant? romantic relationships relevant?

So, Timothy needed help exactly from Nerrien and noone else would do, correct? Is that the case that Timothy needed Nerrien, but despite this he needed her having high status, so he pretended she had such a status?

Ok, so for being promoted Timothy should: increase the number of articles published? publish a book? organise an event? teach more classes? teach more subjects? take care over somebody with lower degree?
Does Nerrien have lower degree than Timothy?

Is Timothy up for tenure? Is Nerrien on the tenure committee? Does Timothy need more publications as part of his tenure package? Will having Nerrien collaborate somehow increase his number of publications? Does he need to demonstrate his ability to collaborate?

Does he/would he list Nerrien as first author? second? other?

So Nerrien has been working at the university for a long time, but has few or no publications, correct? Would this puzzle work if she had been working there for a long time with many publications? If she had been working there for a short time with few or no publications?

Is Timothy up for tenure? yesIs Nerrien on the tenure committee? yes Does Timothy need more publications as part of his tenure package? no Will having Nerrien collaborate somehow increase his number of publications? noDoes he need to demonstrate his ability to collaborate? no

Does he/would he list Nerrien as first author? second? other?n/a

So Nerrien has been working at the university for a long time, but has few or no publications, correct? yesWould this puzzle work if she had been working there for a long time with many publications? probably notIf she had been working there for a short time with few or no publications?possibly

HINT: Add the following to the puzzle description: Nerrien resents the way Timothy treats her--& NOT she thinks that he is making fun of her. (I should have included this in the puzzle description--sorry!

Is how Timothy treats Nerrien a common way that people treat those of very high status? those with higher status than themselves? The way Timothy treats Nerrien resembles the way students treat professors? teachers treat dean? people treat ambassadeurs? The "very high status" in this puzzle mean the specific status of a specific person? Or does it mean a general description? Official titles involved?

RECAP: Add this to the puzzle statement: Timothy is an academic go-getter: an up-and-coming assistant professor who is coming up for tenure. Nerrien is a low-status but tenured professor in his department. Timothy treats Nerrien in a way you're supposed to treat the occupant of a particular high-status role, and Nerrien resents this treatment. HINT: FIND OUT THE ROLE.
