Profiling

Whether you believe we are endowed with our abilities from our Creator or have developed them as a result of repeated natural selection (on the order of billions of times), somewhere along the way we gained the ability to generalize. We build models in our mind of the universe about us and how we expect it to behave and do it each and every day we are alive, constantly refining them. Good models potentially lead to survival, perhaps even gain. Bad models lead to poor decisions that can lead to extinction. Really defective models. insanity. Short of removing the ability to generalize from our minds, which would almost certainly lead to racial extinction (as in everyone dies), we are stuck with this behavior. Some call it profiling. When it works? I call it "common sense."
