They looked at the very difficult task of sexing day-old chicks--something that people spend years learning in an apprentice-like role. This suggested to Maher et al. (1994) that AS was in a state of denial about his own speech errors.

(1998) reported an ambitious magneto-encephalography (MEG) study designed to identify those areas of the brain most active during the successive processing stages involved in naming pictures. Self-control is like a muscle that develops with practice and generalizes into other areas than the area it is trained for. Although many studies do obtain evidence for mood-congruency and trait-congruency, some studies have found mood-incongruency effects, and others have found no effects of mood or personality at all.
