I'm Dealing With Someone Who Values Emotion Over Reason
I know someone who I can say pretty much whatever I want to, and she won't really be offended. She may say a few words of disapproval, but she won't really get angry.

On the other hand, if I raise my voice a little, it doesn't even matter if what I'm saying isn't really that offensive. She'll immediately get upset, and she'll remain upset for the next few hours.

So, apparently, her brain doesn't really care about the words it should be processing. Mainly what it seems to care about is the raw, dumb, animal emotion. A cliche comes to mind: it's not what you say but how you say it.

I think I'm "human", and I've always thought the people around me were "human" too, because they look like me and mostly act like me, but sometimes I think those other people who look human are actually just dumb animals whose bodies have evolved without their brains following suit.

Take a university critical thinking course. Then take a university interpersonal communication course. Okay, then take a university general psychology course. Then you won't need to post your hastily generalized Freudianesque misread of a girl's preference for civilized conversation.

Baloney. My ex-husband could not reason his way out of a paper bag and threw temper tantrums to get his way.

The stereotyping on this site is stupid.

When you raise your voice "a little", please stop to think about why you are raising your voice. Is it to make yourself audible over ambient background noise? (that would be the only purely logical reason) Or is it because you yourself are displaying angry aggression?

A voice raised in anger is among the first steps towards escalating violence. A perceptive person, animal, or amoeba knows that. And anticipates the escalation.

A wise person often knows that it is best to discontinue interacting with the aggression at that point, rather than remain involved for the next step of the confrontation.

You may be quick to look down upon someone who withdraws from your raised voice because it is "just" a voice, technically not an act of violence... yet.

But please realize that a raised voice in and of itself is part of an ancient primal gut-level escalation into violence, not a logical thing.

In short, once a voice is raised -- that is to say that the first party enters into the ancient primal escalation of aggression -- he is the one who has breached and abandoned logical communication and entered into primal conflict.

The brain wisely shuts down listening to the intellectual meaning of the words and prepares itself for combat.

Because physical assault is the next step. Truly.

Women are braindead when it comes to out-of-box problems. We are heading into an economic abyss as the feminists discuss gay marriage.

Most people are mentally insane seriously about 80% of people think bizarre thoughts and want to kill other people and fuck with their lives.

The human brain has three distinct parts:

1. The reptilian brain - interested in fighting, eating and procreating

2. The mammal brain - focused on social status and emotion

3. The frontal lobes - where logic, creativity, and spirituality is handled


The frontal lobes are practically dormant in most people, and such people will alternate between emotional social drama (mammal) and defensive aggression (reptilian).

Your friend is a textbook example.

Agreed. I thought the stereotyping was a joke at first. Very disturbing to find out people really think like this! Its perhaps the doomiest thing of all.
