To turn this off open up the Preferences window, select the Editing
tab, select the Scheme subtab, and unselect "Automatically adjust
opening parens".  Then it will open '(' or '[' as you specify.  You
can leave on "automatically adjust closing parens" if you want, and
you can type either ')' or ']' regardless and it will insert the
appropriate paren to close the nearest enclosing s-expression.
