    Hannah Blog has the original of most of what I write. It's even got stuff from before there was an internet, though not before there were computers. :)
    I think it was actually that California minister, whom Obama invited to the first inauguration, who wrote about the purpose-driven life, which led me to explore the "driven" as opposed to self-directed personality. I suspect self-direction depends on reflection and an awareness of self that some people seem to lack. We all act out of habit, if only because it is more efficient (think back to when you were learning to drive and how long it took to think about each action), but the self-aware are able to reconsider, reflect, correct. The instinct-driven just do the same thing over and over again.

      Cool. And this is the gist of your thinking about instinct driven people?

      .... which led me to explore the "driven" as opposed to self-directed personality .... the self-aware are able to reconsider, reflect, correct. The instinct-driven just do the same thing over and over again.
      Thanks for the response and link to your blog. I look forward to learning more.
