is a well respected treatise that make a distinction between visceral ("feeling") and neo-cortex (intellectually "thinking") recognition of attraction to another person. You may viscerally love them (be hot for them, "feel" that they mean well, whatever) but know that they are a total idiot (neo-cortex).
We need to put both on the table and sort it out.
Or, conversely, you may totally admire them for their intellect, intelligence, commitment, and perseverance (Winston Churchill and Benjamin Franklin come to mind) but abhor them as fat drunken slobs, which both were (visceral)...
What the HR people say in the end is this: I don't care about the color of your eyes, the color of your skin, or your blood type. All I care about is your BEHAVIOUR. Fix that and we'll all get along just fine.
Starting with MYOB and keep your hands off my stuff.
