Understanding domestic dog's behavior - dog type and shape of its canine predatory sequence, genus Canis ethogram implications and individual predispositions - is essential similarly to understanding gray wolf as an apex predatory species in its natural habitat.
Hacking, as the proper definition, is not reserved only for programming and IT related security, where hacker should be a skilled person owning enough essential pro-technical knowledge to solve a specific problem.

The hacker mind-set is not confined to this software-hacker culture. There are people who apply the hacker attitude to other things, like electronics or music - actually, you can find it at the highest levels of any science or art.
