Some people do not hesitate to walk across a fiery pit of glowing coals. For most of us, firewalking is likely to be a big decision. Suggest what kind of measurements might tell us how firewalkers differ from people who refuse to firewalk. Be inventive; it’s not a research proposal. It’s fine to begin with cultural or genetic or experiential differences, but then try to pinpoint the mental trait or process or deficiency that would lead one person to be a firewalker and another to refuse. Remember that we want something we can measure: how fast? how much? how accurately?
