Mike I did not give up because I was right (did I have willpower?).  See my
latest post of a few minutes ago.  If you cannot objectively measure
willpower or any other concept, you cannot do valid studies.

Many people would be happy with 'gut feelings' as a definition of
'intuition'.  Do you see how that fails in every aspect to give us a way to
measure it?  bill w
