Genetic knowledge question

Hello readers,

Please excuse me for my lack of detailed knowledge in neurology; I am
nothing but an interested amateur.

I have heard that the human brain could be split down to two major parts
from the evolutionary point of view: #1 The part that is also common
with reptiles and #2 the part that is new with mamals. I have concluded,
but this is not as important nor relevant, that instincts are located in
#1 and the dubbed 'mind' in #2.

I have also heard that #2 is particulary diffirent with humans and is
not perfectly fused onto #1. I have concluded that as it has evolved,
none but the sexual instincts were important from the evolutionary point
of view and that it is so that normal humans (or their #2) only have
access to sexual instincts in #1.

The questions here are: 
- Is it possible that at some point in time, there would be a human (or
his #2) who would have access to all of #1? I belive so, but I am not
the person to be sure about it.
- If such a person would exist, what would it's behaviour be like? I
have the feeling that there is lots of usefull genetic knowledge in #1
and that the effect on such a person's personality would be great, this
person would be a little above average capable, but would score lower
than average on (IQ) tests, because the instinct could be making it hard
for it to cooperate.

Thanks in advance.
