We generally think of 'instincts' as a type of innate irresistible sense certain animals have. Salmon somehow find the streams they were hatched in after wandering through many miles of ocean, for example. But some actions seem to be ANTI -instinctive. What kind of guy sticks his unshod foot into the writhing belly of a feisty cat? And what kind of cat resists his natural impulse to shred said foot?
Well, that would be me, and mine!
If you look in the dictionary under Anti instinctive, perhaps you will see a little picture of Mike and Jackson, demonstrating the concept.
