Brain 'rejects negative thoughts'

My Boss has had that for years now, every time he turns up it's when I am having a crafty five minutes break. How else would he know what I was up to

I'm listening on CDs to NYT columnist David Brooks's book on what we know today about the human brain. Fascinating stuff. From Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/Social-Animal-Sou ... 140006760X

". . . Drawing on a wealth of current research from numerous disciplines, Brooks takes Harold and Erica from infancy to school; from the “odyssey years” that have come to define young adulthood to the high walls of poverty; from the nature of attachment, love, and commitment, to the nature of effective leadership. He reveals the deeply social aspect of our very minds and exposes the bias in modern culture that overemphasizes rationalism, individualism, and IQ. Along the way, he demolishes conventional definitions of success while looking toward a culture based on trust and humility. . . ."
