    Thanks for the reference to this post. In many of our endeavors, we actively seek to identify predictable behaviors in others such that we can anticipate and please them. Yet we become concerned when others seem to be doing the same. Solzhenitzyn wrote in Gulag Archipelago that the Russian torture for Westerners was to ask what their favorite music and foods were and then to give that to them — day after day after day. We want the opportunity to seem spontaneous even if we might not ever exercise that option.
