1. Humans are excellent problem solvers
    We look at anything and think: how can we make this better/easier/safer/more enjoyable? We constantly question our world around us and continually demand that it improves and then figure out how to make it happen and I think that's really cool.
  2. But we are terrible decision makers
    We often are rash and emotional when put into situations that require us to make big decisions. As much as we'd like to believe, humans are not great fortune tellers. No matter how much we try to plan and predict, life is just a series of random events that we then have to decide how to deal with.
