Instinct is originally defined as “an inherited or innate psycho physical disposition which determines its possessor to perceive, and to pay attention to, objects of a certain class, to experience an emotional excitement of a particular quality upon perceiving such an object, and to act in regard to it in a particular manner, or, at least, to experience an impulse to such action (McDougall, 1908, p. ” Every instinct is seen as eliciting a specific emotion.
