On the subject of dual mindedness and the emotions; it is interesting to note that contempt is the only universal emotion that is one-sided. It always occurs on the same side in a person. Correlation between handedness and contempt-smile-sidedness would be a fascinating phenomenon. Does anyone here know of any study that touches on this?

Also, this is my introduction to the community. I hope to have some interesting things to contribute, and hope you will have interesting answers to my questions!

Turn to the first chapter of the Book of James and read verse 8.

James (or the actual writer of this N.T. scripture, while not a modern psychologist, expends the entire first chapter in explanation, not of the 'voices' problem of bicameral man, but of the usage of these Christian beliefs as an effective work-around to 'safely' access the decision-maker lost to Conscious (literate) mankind.
