Subject: Re: A strange question...

I'm not sure I understand your definition of `think'. I think it is the "think" that people use for "feel" because they feel that "feel" would mark them as inferior human beings. Most people would rather die than think. In fact, they do. I heard from a behaviorist the other day that new managerial theories are first tested on animals. Even my cat can see through simple reward schemes that work wonders on people for many years and she does better at delayed gratification tests than many children. I would undoubtedly tolerate such people better if they had fur and purred and lived for less than 20 years. -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
