Default Whence instinct

In the manner that I handle, sense and treat people I continually encounter the nature of instinct; its origins, its manifestation and its persistent influence.

Saying exactly where this comes from, how I deal with it, how I deal with my own –well, it’s not easy.

But several books, essays and articles have come together for me and I want to write an intermittent series about this in an effort to understand it more clearly.

Let’s start with this essay

Quote:
My work seems to be about creating an environment that makes it safe to express something that our culture has sought to extinguish; the complete expression of instinctive, corrective movement. Portions of this activity are seen in our shifting about as we sit. Beyond a certain point it is called fidgeting, and we can usually count on any one near us to express disapproval of it.
I think that at this point I begin to diverge from the cultural norm. The issues that come to mind: How does this instinct on the patient’s part begin to meld with my own instinct to use it? Is what I possess in the way of a desire to understand it rightfully called an instinct?

More soon.

On my Facebook page someone commented and I was reminded of this old thread featuring the insights in Claxton's book.

Incognito has also been mentioned on Facebook.

I'd recommend this thread for more about that.
