comment What makes people like Abraham Lincoln step up to lead in times of danger?
This question could be more suitable for cognitive sciences (at least as I edited it, changing as little as possible).

comment Is mutually consensual BDSM a symptom of a sick mind or an expression of freedom from social constraints?
In this context, are you referring to "light" activities such as spanking and paddling, with mild pain, and no real chance of injury, or "heavy" activities with strong pain and a meaningful chance of injury?

comment Is there such a person as a “social” homosexual?
@Skippy: I have read that most homosexuals are such because they are attracted to the genitals (sexuality) of people of the same, rather than opposite. sex. But the lesbians I know have married and divorced men, and then dated (and lived with) women who will submit to them. And one of them would now like to resume dating men. Could this be a different type of "homosexuality" than the first (genital) kind?

comment Could the basis of love be the expectation of a future benefit?
"Can love ever be without expectation of benefit? It would seem that the actual experience of love, itself has a reward." At the tender age of sixteen, I wrote a poem that reads in part, "I will love her, always love her/Even if love is never returned." You just explained why I wrote that.

comment How is intelligence correlated to beauty?
It's called selective mating. Intelligence and beauty are both forms of "excellence" that attract each other even if they aren't the same.

The soldiers at Masada did what the question "expected." But the question was, why is this so exceptional, and why don't (most) other soldiers in similar straits behave this way?
