As always, interesting topic and article – thank you for that.

Have you been thinking about this also within the framework of Axelrod's tournament? You seem to be assuming that there is always Persona A within each of us, but what if, in some conflicts, Persona A is simply "not in" at all; much like in some of the strategies submitted for the purposes of Axelrod's tournament, such as, for example, "always defect" strategy. Admittedly, Persona A may be much likely present when it comes to spouses, life partners, boyfriends and girlfriends etc., but perhaps even that may be debatable in some cases.
