[yzjzdbid] Toddler instinct

Toddlers instinctively go through a phase in which they test limits, perhaps testing the laws of physics or what their body can do or withstand, but more famously, testing social rules much to the annoyance of parents and caregivers.

In most people, this instinct turns off, and the kid, later adult, learns to behave properly.  Examine the mechanism by which this instinct exists, and how it gets turned off.

The advancement of science depends on people testing limits.  But keeping social order depends on people not testing limits.
