John, I'm not so sure about this conclusion. Our genes are the product of
several hundreds of thousands of years, and they seem to build more
feeling or emotional parts of our brains than thinking parts. If this is
true 'US' may be more emotional than logical. Particlarly in situations
that have risk, to our selves or our jobs (same thing?) we may react from
our emotions rather than logically.
