Creatures of Habit

As a dog returns to its vomit, so fools repeat their folly. Proverbs 26:11

I am a creature of habit. Once I find a menu item that I like, I will only select that item when I go into the restaurant even years later. You can guarantee that if I were to go into that same restaurant a week later, that’s the item I’ll choose.

Experts on criminal behavior state that amateur criminals will return to the scene of the crime sooner or later, and when they do, they can nab them.

Being able to identify those behaviors is a major step closer to resolving them, that is, if that is what you really want to do.
