If agency is so essential that a war was fought in Heaven over whether we would have it or not, and if there are fundamental psychological constraints on our agency (such as imprinting, for example), then it would seem to me to be essential to study our psychology in order to maximize our agency.

It is clear that being a disciple of Christ demands introspection and an 'examined life'. Self-improvement requires self-evaluation, self-evaluation requires clear observation and thinking about oneself. Digging into our psychology is essential if we are to become full agents capable of acting and not being acted upon.

The unexamined life is truly not worth living. There is no salvation in ignorance.
