"Nope there you are just plain wrong. This is where the pc analogy really stengthens its self. Modern processors have both an onboard memory buffer and can easily be divided into numerous sections of what does what. Eg, there is one section called the ALU (arithmetic logic unit, I bet you can guess what that bit does). And there's another that decodes instructions as they are recalled from memory. "
But there is no "processor" in the brain, the brain is the processor and the memory, all rolled into one. You can have PC proccessors with on-board memory, but they are still split into distinct units, a CPU part and a memory part, the brain doesn't work like that.
"Now lets have a look at how decisions are made.
The human brain is a learning machine. "
"That means that based on previous inputs, it will make the best possible decision in any circumstances. "
"Now if someones personality (keeping in mind that a large part of someones personality is the way they react in situations) is based on the way thier neurons are connected, they wouldn't really learn all that fast now would they?"
People's personalities don't generally change very fast, what's your point? Beside's what makes you think that the formation of connections between neurones is a slow process? Our memories manage to grab new info. pretty fast.
"just like my processor with the defective decoder will behave strangly, the way a persons' brain is wired does play a part in thier personality, but it is by no measure the difinitive factor."
Your personality is determined by the connection's between neurones in the cerebral cortex. If you don't want to take my word for it, find a neurology proffessor and ask him, or find a neurology text book, they will both tell you exactly the same thing.
You just choose not to believe them, because you don't want to, you don't like what i'm saying, thing is not liking something doesn't make it any less true.
