Imagine that you are from the planet Saturn and are visiting the United
States on vacation. You are eager to figure out what makes these earthlings
(or at least the subset homo sapiens americanus) tick. Whatmatters to them?
Whatthrills them? Whattroubles them? What moves them to action? What
renders them inert? How do they deal with the stresses and strains of daily
life? How do they sift throughthe barrage ofinfonnation that confronts them
every day? How do they handle uncertainty? How do they deal with ambiguity?
How do they address their conflicting needs and desires?
