    You say you like a person for their brain. So I have to ask, are you more of a cerebral cortex or a Corpus callosum kind of a person?

    I strictly go for a large strong amygdala.

    I would like to see myself as a mixture of medial temporal lobe, anterior insula, medial temporal gyrus and prefrontal cortex with some amygdala added in. Some of the prominent parts of the brain for empathy.

    That is definitely amygdala driven. Scary.

    You know there is some neurologic evidence that the amygdala is on average larger in those that consider themselves as right wing than those that are left.

    It's been a while, but I used to eat something like that when I was a baby.
    Of course, my grandfather was full-blooded Englishman, and those types eat some strange foods.

    I used to do little tricks when I was three, and in return the butcher would give me slices of black pudding.
    Weird, right?

    There's a lot of evidence, particularly for the right amygdala.

    Heh...you mean the study Colin Firth commissioned in the UK?
    That made me laugh. He said something like 'It was just for fun initially. I wanted to find out what was wrong with people who didn't think like me.'

    But they actually turned up some correlation. I wouldn't take it too serious (I'm sure it wasn't predictive of behaviour) but it was kinda interesting.
