    I cannot see how that could have garnered anything but inaccurate information. Of course given the subject....could it have ever been that accurate? At least from just question asking?
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Piglet was comforted by this.

    Yes, this is the point I was trying to make earlier, if the means of getting this information was primarily self-reporting then it's far more an indication of how much a society (or, the collective of individuals within that society) values emotional displays than actual emotionality. People being self-aware enough to answer such a thing accurately is more the exception than the rule.

    Yeah, what the hell. They call it hot-blooded for a reason - it's too cold up here to get too cranky.

    Yes. People are fundamentally, well, people and people have feelings.
