SAT -English
I see, thanks. It looks like it might also be possible to use 'toward' (if I'm right in thinking the definition 'in regard to' is in use here) and it does Sound Right but I never see that. I liked English more when I didn't think about it.

What's funny is that I don't know /why/. I always see 'with' used here, but have no clue why it is that way. Does anyone know if it has a reason for not being 'for' or 'of' instead, or is it just arbitrary?
