My experience was much the same, Ogre, except my mentor wasn't related to me, just a smart, decent person that I was lucky enough to meet early on. Other people tell me their mentors were often simply long-dead authors in books they could find.

Anyway, this early realization that (most) other people didn't think very rationally was inducive to my whole educational track -- and my interest in power and how it manifests itself in ancient and modern cultures. That's also why I think that information is key to concepts of power and how it is gained and wielded.
