Undoubtedly. However, I was speaking on a more abstract level. The point is that the stuff that drives us is definitely not something that an observer could just "pick up" (especially since, as you say, we're such a mystery even to ourselves). As an example, no matter how long I observe birds, I will never feel the same compulsion they do to migrate. We call it "instinct" because we don't know what it really is. To Yuki, our reasons for taking action would never be more than "instinct." It's something she can't relate to, and it's something that can't just grow on her.
