I have just realised that when children's motives do not make sense, I consciously try to model their thinking: I have my own experiences and a great deal of developmental psychology to buttress my experiments.

When adults seem particularly opaque or obtuse or petrified I make no similar attempt to model. I find adult illogic to be frictionless and impenetrable: impossible to model. Perhaps I do them a disservice?
