In his pop-psych psuedo-novel The Social Animal writer/pundit David Brooks posits that much of our decision-making isn't conscious but the result of a network of subconscious neural networks. Perhaps hooning isn't learned, perhaps it's actually something formed at a deeper level within our synaptic pathways in some of us as a result of evolution, environment, and our parent's behavior.

Just check out this video of vintage burnouts and donuts to see what I mean about hooning being an innate tendency. (Hat tip to Jake!)
