A concept from Mastery. Primal Inclinations refer to those activities or subjects that deeply interest us, and especially interested us as we were kids. These activities or subjects could be things like writing, playing with certain toys, reading about certain scientific fields, building things.

Albert Einstein, for example, was fascinated as an early child with a compass that his father had given him, and it was from that fascination that he developed a deep interest in physics.
