Thank you David. Good points. If you noticed, I am not trying to narrow down the things that lead to individual responses, but to look at what entrenched maladaptive patterns have in common, including those triggered by social pressures and an internal responsiveness that is particularly sensitive to those pressures. I hope you will take a look at a more detailed treatment in the next post on 7/2/20.
