Not basic

I’m wondering if one of the legacies that I’ve handed down to my sons is the automatic search for flaws.
I’ve noticed that especially with Jake, when talking about something, or looking at something new, he will often find that one thing that is missing, or notice a crack or imperfection immediately.
The variable is in not knowing if everyone does this, or if it’s just us. I know that animals evaluate for the weakness or condition that sets something apart, so on that level, I could see how it would be normal, however, if it’s what we are always looking for, then nothing can ever be quite right.
