Variations to instinct must be bred in and cannot be thought out (see Box 5b for added detail). This distinction between these three separate ‘problem-solving’ strategies (by construction, by instinct, and by learning) available to organisms permits a more controversial but equally useful theoretical stance. It posits that mankind is unique in having no instinct. This position can be reached by defining all the strategies tightly and by eliminating loose terminology. For instance, no organism has a survival instinct – survival is the outcome of all its behaviour, it is not a unit of behaviour in itself.

The British philosophers of the mid-17th century, Locke, Berkeley, and Hume, all supported Locke’s notion of tabula rasa: that the differences between individuals are entirely attributable to learning; experience writes on a blank sheet. They made no reference to instinct, but the early psychologists, often dominated by results of Organisation of cognitive function 29 experiments using animals as subjects, were less clear. The elements in their definitions that were built into their experiments were as clearly distinguished as they are in the definition given in Box 5a.

Too frequently we make statements about some driver ‘braking by instinct’ to avoid an accident. But the driver has not evolved an instinct for driving vehicles; all that is available is acquired by training, powerfully reinforced by experience, which leads to insight and facilitates the making of accurate predictions. Some reactions can be so practised that they become conditioned reflexes; but they are all learnt, are amenable to relearning, and are not bred in. To get a competent driver, someone is needed who has to know what to teach, how to teach, and how to design equipment that fits human physical limits.
