" Recently in an online question and answer session that exact question was posed to a think tanker.
Well I never do.
But, it could have something to do with inner will, genetics, heartbeat rates, biorhythms and personal bio-system memory of how you use the chemicals within.
Could inner will block the chemicals from being released that set the bio-system and allow it open for input of cults? Could be.
I would say that people do not realize this, but you can will your body to do anything you want it to.
Those in sports do it on a regular basis.
Some ask; "Maybe it depends a person's psyche, how deep they can go into their thoughts?" or "Or how wide of a perspective one person has? I don't know.
Its more complex than we might think.
" Indeed good point, but that complexity comes from simplicity remember 2+2=4.
So lets say you have 15-20 systems of your bio-system all simple in themselves running, then each affects each other along with your observations, experience, chemicals from food intake and your genetics which produce them and your set-up (genetic make up) of organs from past period ancestry.
So it appears to be a very complex thing and therefore hard to determine who might be most apt to joining a cult and who can hang around a cult and never fall for any of it? Yet it may not be so complicated if we work backwards you see.
Consider this in 2006.
