Everyone is an "instincto" to some extent. Of course, the rare ones are
those who rely exclusively on their instincts when eating. Heck, even a
cooked-fooder uses his instincts to SELECT foods (unfortunately, they
don't seem to be very reliable past that point).

I wonder what you mean by "thoughts" and "emotions" above.
