Well, talking about a "defect" is probably not the right term - it's rather an instinct (as research shows with animals). It's about Displacement Activity[^]. I observe that we humans have similar "instincts" that let us do other things than we "should", especially if under pressure...! The stay-focussed behavioral pattern is rather a human conditioning by culture... Wink | ;-) Some are better trained than others to behave against the instinct Smile | :)
