Am I unusual?
If coercion is applied - even gentle persuasion or well-meaning trickery - I'll become suspicious and resentful and, although I may submit to undertaking the activity in question, it becomes increasingly unlikely that I will be open to learning much from it.
If I am openly bribed or blackmailed to do something I immediately start looking for an escape route. If I can't see a way out I will focus my energies on learning how to beat the system (of rewards and punishments) rather than happily applying myself to learning from the activity in question.
If I am locked in a room, 'forced' into doing something and given no other choice, I will be angry, upset and will close my mind completely to the activity on offer. If this happened to me every day for years without rescue, I'd probably become increasingly resentful towards the world in general. I would actively seek to avoid the activity in question at every possible opportunity.
Is this how most people would react in those circumstances, or am I unusual?
