Human beings have a remarkable ability that is likely unique; the ability to consider what our response will/should/might be to a given stimuli.

Some will argue that apes or dolphins or dogs have that ability too; I doubt it, but that misses the point.

How often do you consciously choose response, instead of just reacting out of reflex or conditioning?

Really, really consider that question.

The honest answer may surprise you.
