To be able to control one’s self is important. According to Psychology Today, our large prefrontal cortex allows us to have self-control.
We have more self-control than our ancestors did and we ahem or than most animals in the world. Using self-control, we keep our impulses, emotions, and desires in check. Sometimes out of respect sometimes out of need (we don’t want to make a fool of ourselves).
Most of the time, we control ourselves, because it is how the world works (standing in line waiting for your turn, not pushing people out of your way to be first, and not talking above everyone when you feel your opinion is more important). But, there are some dogs that have a tremendous amount of self-control. Watch Nelly, the golden retriever show you how it is done! She can balance almost anything on her nose! Good girl, Nelly!
